Nicki Minaj expertly managed a wardrobe malfunction that resulted after her stylists changed up her outfit securing mechanisms.
Minaj was performing at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia when the incident happened. She was one of the headliners along with Post Malone, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill and More.
While she was performing, the top of her dress moved sideways a little too much, causing her chest to be exposed to the audience. Minaj put everything back into expertly as soon as she noticed, passing it off as a seamless and fluid dance move.
A fan account posted a video of Minaj referencing the malfunction at the start of her new performance. She said, “You know what? They all saw my n***les 50 times tonight.”
She also took to Twitter later to address the situation. Replying to a fan that wrote, “Last night Nicki’s t**s said “TO FREEDOM!” And I don’t have a problem with it,” she said, “They put on see thru pasties on me while heading to stage. I just KNEW they were my normal (non see through ones) chile… ummmm they were not!”
Minaj has had wardrobe malfunctions with some of the riskier outfits she wears many times before, including on Good Morning America, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
The US leg of Minaj’s upcoming tour NickiHndrxx has been moved from September to May 2019 and will no longer feature co-headliner Future.
