Rapper Nicki Minaj was left holding her dress together to prevent an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction after forgetting to do up the zipper before running out on stage at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.
The hip-hop star chose a little black dress for her performance with Jessie J and Ariana Grande at The Forum venue in Inglewood, California on Sunday (24Aug14).
However, she ran out of time during her costume change and emerged on stage to perform Bang Bang without doing up her zipper properly. Minaj was left holding her dress together throughout the song to prevent the tight gown from popping open.
Speaking after the show, she told reporters, "We ran out of time to get the dress zipped up."
Minaj later uploaded a picture of the incident on her Instagram.com page, adding in a caption, "God is good. As long as a nipple didn't come out to play, I'm fine. Love my team."
