Listen, we know from years of dance recitals that quick changes are hard. When you're a professional and two other divas are counting on you to make it onstage for the rap verse in a song, though, there's even more pressure. If you don't make it entirely into your second costume, you've still gotta get out there and drop it like you're fully clothed.
Nicki Minaj is nothing if not a consummate professional, so that's exactly what she did. She didn't make it entirely into the black dress she put on to perform "Bang Bang" after "Anaconda." So, she did what any true pro does: She bobbed around the stage clutching her dress closed for dear life and made up for it with facial expressions. Nary a nip was slipped, and it's better than anyone getting bitten by an actual snake, no? Watch the whole thing go down ahead.
