Nicki Minaj, along with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, opened up last night's VMAs (opens in new tab), which featured brief solo performances from each artists, with the three eventually coming together to perform their joint venture, "Bang Bang". As all good VMA performances do, this one, of course, had a few mishaps. Nicki's super-tight black dress ripped, leaving a big, revealing split in the front, forcing her to hold it together throughout the rest of her performance (opens in new tab).

In typical Nicki fashion, however, she shrugged off the slip when asked about it by the press, yelling to them: "You all know I had a wardrobe malfunction," before ducking out of the reporter's views and into the after party, according to US Weekly. But really, what else would you expect from someone who stars in a music video like the one for Anaconda (opens in new tab)? Nothing can phase Nicki Minaj—she's unflappable.
