Miley Cyrus certainly held NOTHING back when she hosted the VMAs on Aug. 30 — she even flashed viewers and revealed her entire nipple on camera! Here are some other stars who’ve had major wardrobe malfunctions in front of big audiences — click to see the scandalous pics!
There was no shortage of skin at the Video Music Awards this year, but with Miley Cyrus as host, that was certainly no surprise. Her revealing outfits made for some pretty close calls, though, and even resulted in MORE than one wardrobe malfunction. Check out which other celebs have suffered a similar fate!

The 22-year-old wore a variety of ensembles while hosting the awards show, but at one point, she stood backstage COMPLETELY naked, with nothing covering her but the stage’s curtain. Unfortunately, she got a bit flustered when her mic wasn’t working, and accidentally dropped the drape — revealing her nipple on television! What we didn’t see on TV, too, was when she flashed the audience another unmentionable while not wearing any underwear in a super short dress. Oy…only Miley!
Granted, Miley purposely dressed scandalous, so it’s likely she was prepared for a malfunction to occur — but, in 2013, Lady Gaga unexpectedly suffered a nightmare in front of a huge crowd! The “Applause” singer — whose latest album you can buy here — was performing in Canada, wearing a skintight leather outfit, when she totally split her pants on stage! Her back was to the crowd, so she totally showed her butt to the audience. YIIKES is right.
And, of course, who could forget Janet Jackson’s infamous nipple-baring moment during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show?! She was performing with Justin Timberlake, singing his hit “Rock Your Body,” and when he ripped off her costume, her breast was completely exposed for about half a second — oops! This one went down in what was likely the biggest audience possible, though: an estimated 143 million people were watching! OMG.
