In testament to close their celebrity friendship is, Ariana Grande helped Nicki Minaj escape a wardrobe malfunction at the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday.

As Minaj made her way to the stage at Radio City in New York to accept the award for “Best Hip Hop,” Grande leapt up to lend a helping hand.

"I'm so proud of you," she said about Grande's release of her new album, Sweetener. "I'm so freaking proud of you Ariana!"
