She shocked fans with her booty-shaking “Anaconda” performance at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards. And then…suddenly…Nicki Minaj seemed to twerk herself right into a wardrobe malfunction.

The rapper had just wrapped up her opening number when she was joined on-stage by Ariana Grande and Jessie J, who accompanied Nicki for a performance of her single “Bang Bang.” It was then we noticed that Minaj, 32, appeared to be clutching her dress together in a desperate bid to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.

In all fairness, however, the VMAs aren’t the VMAs without at least one nipple slip.
