Nicki Minaj Explains VMAs Wardrobe Malfunction: No Nip Slip, No Problem

Pin It
Nicki Minaj literally held it together last night at the MTV Music Video Awards to save viewers from seeing her wardrobe malfunction. And we think it was thisclose to happening, as Nicki kept her dress closed while awkwardly joining Ariana Grande and Jessie J on stage for "Bang Bang."

Of course, afterwards, Nicki was asked about the near nip slip and she laughed it off, explaining to reporters, "You all know I had a wardrobe malfunction." What happened?

Nicki told Us Weekly, "It felt amazing to open the show. We ran out of time getting the dress zipped up." The show must go on...even with an unzipped dress!

A source told Us Weekly, however, that the dress didn't fit, explaining, "She could never get into that dress. During the dress rehearsal she did the number numerous times and could not make it into the dress zipped up even once. I've no idea why she didn't just decide to wear something else. She just didn't have the time to change from one outfit into another, there was no way."

Nicki also posted a pic from the performance on Instagram, writing: "God is good. As long as a nipple didn't come out to play, I'm fine. Love my team."

She also Instagrammed a pic of herself, Jessie J and Ariana, writing: "The BANG BANG video is out now!!!! Love u girls. Sorry about my zipper."
