Nicki Minaj’s VMA Performance

Nicki’s “Anaconda” performance at the VMAs was filled with a ton of green, a ton of twerking and even some Sir Mix-A-Lot. We wouldn’t expect less from Nicki! From the moment the sassy rapper announced “Anaconda,” every move she has made has been has been SO wild and unexpected! 

Just one month ago, Nicki premiered the song’s single cover. She rocked a teeny-tiny thong in the cover photo! Then, we saw Nicki give rapper Drake, 27, a very sexy lap dance in the “Anaconda” music video’s teaser.  Next, Nicki dropped the song’s video — and it was crazy sexy and amazing! Nicki left very little to the imagination in the vid.

And now… we have the performance to add to Nicki’s “Anaconda” antics. During Nicki’s first major live performance of the show, she remixed her song with Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Big Butts,” which let’s just say –it’s fitting.

Rumors ran wild before Nicki’s big VMA performance after one of her dancer’s was bit by a snake in rehearsals!

Nicki Minaj: Back Up Dancer Bit By Snake During ‘Anaconda’ Rehearsals

Rumor has it that on Friday, Aug. 22, a six foot snake bit one of Nicki’s backup dancers during VMA practice performance of “Anaconda.” Nicki kept her performance details a secret, but she always wanted to use snake’s for her “Anaconda” debut, according to TMZ. Their report claims that the dancer had to be taken to the hospital after the snake bite!

Snakes have a VMA history. Britney Spears wrapped one around her neck during her 2001 performance of “I’m A Slave 4 U.”
