Ellen asked the singer what happened during the performance, since there was a lot of speculation about it possibly being done on purpose.
Nicki set the record straight saying, “I had I don’t know about 40-50 seconds to change from the “Anaconda” outfit into the “Bang Bang” outfit. Originally I was just going to have a skirt that just wrapped around the green but the I realized that Jessie and Arianna were wearing black and white I didn’t want ruin the shot with me wearing a green bra and them wearing black and white,” she revealed.
To make sure that her outfit went with the others Nicki said, “I was like I have to put on a black dress really quickly and sure enough we didn’t have a real quick-change right there. So it was literally my whole team just standing there holding curtains around me and it was pitch black,” the rapper revealed. “I couldn’t see anything and right before it was time for me to walk out they went to zip it up… And right there I thought I died…”
Ellen then asked if she had to hold the whole outfit together. Nicki revealed, “I didn’t have any underwear on. No underwear. No bra, because I had just taken off the Anaconda outfit. So I was butt ass naked…I don’t know.”
The funny host than said, “Knowing that and seeing how calm and collected you were walking holding your outfit together with nothing on underneath it and signing in front of millions of people.. I think you handled it really really well.”
