Nicki Minaj picked MTV’s grand VMA stage to perform her record-breaking single, “Anaconda,” for the first time. Needless to say that fans were in for a treat.
Minaj was the second to grace the stage during a medley that also included performances by Ariana Grande (“Break Free”) and Jessie J (“Bang Bang”). But in no way does the other two performers’ assets measure up to the YMCMB Barbie, who made that apparent while gyrating to the track’s uptempo production.
Backed by backup dancers, Minaj danced, slid across, and even humped the stage for good measure. She also appeared during Jessie J’s set to perform her contribution to the track, but not without a little wardrobe malfunction. But don’t worry, Minaj kept it together. Pun intended.
Peep the footage below.
