Nicki Minaj covers up uncomfortably after wardrobe malfunction at VMAs

There's no right way to come back from a wardrobe malfunction.
Before shocking the audience and millions of viewers at home with her raunchy performance of Anaconda, Nicki Minaj was dressed relatively demure as she opened last night's MTV Video Music Awards alongside Jessie J and Ariana Grande.
The zip on Minaj's dress broke, leaving her front nearly entirely exposed.
But she completed the set like a pro and while she veered away from their synchronised choreography, she held her zip together and danced around stage to get the party started.
Later in the evening, she wore high-waisted embellished emerald green hotpants and a matching bra top as she grinded across the stage - on the floor, on a chair, on her dancers.
While the audience cheered as Nicki took to the stage for her raunchy performance, one celebrity who wasn't impressed was Rita Ora.
The R.I.P. hitmaker was pictured looking gobsmacked as Minaj took to the stage.
Kim Kardashian, however, seemed to enjoy the performance while Jennifer Lopez looked on smiling from her seat.
