Nicki Minaj Talks Wardrobe Malfunction, Reacts to Ellen’s ‘Anaconda’ Parody

Nicki Minaj and Ellen

It was all about Nicki Minaj and her booty when the rap queen stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday. Unlike her previous appearance, this time she covered up and even surprised Ellen with her demure wardrobe.

She admitted that she was taken aback by the success of “Anaconda,” which has over 145 million views. “I was really shocked. I was like, ‘What just happened?’” she said.

Ellen debuted her own hilarious version of the video, which prompted laughs from Nicki. “You are hilarious!” she told her.

She also addressed her wardrobe malfunction at the VMAs. Her team wasn’t able to zip up her outfit in time, so she walked on stage nearly naked. “I didn’t have any underwear on, no underwear, no bra,” said Nicki. “I was butt ass naked.”

As a joke, Ellen presented her with a large safety pin to prevent it from happening in the future.

Plus, she played a word game called “Butt Wait There’s More,” inspired by her ass.

Nicki Minaj Performs ‘Anaconda’ at Fashion Rocks

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj unleashed a wild performance of “Anaconda” at Fashion Rocks 2014. Following an introduction from Paris Hilton and Steve Madden, the voluptuous diva shook the stage with her Sir-Mix-A-Lot sampled hit, busting out some fierce moves while wearing a diamond-studded bra and skirt.

During her racy set, the camera kept cutting to audience members including Jennifer Lopez.

“My darlingz, I wish you could’ve seen the choreography on the 2nd verse of ANACONDA last night,” said Nicki. “It was absolutely divine. CBS decided not to show it. Had they told us this before, we would have changed the choreo so that you guys could see the full performance from beginning to end. They already had you tuned in tho. Artists spend so much of their own money, time and passion to deliver their fans great performances. But ultimately, our art usually falls into the hands of people who care nothing about our art and creativity.”

Shortly before hitting the stage, Nicki announced a November 24 release date for her album The Pinkprint.
