Nicki Minaj Pulls A Janet Jackson At The VMAs

Everyone gabbed about Nicki Minaj’s ~wardrobe malfunction~ at the VMAs on Sunday because yay for something unscripted, but apparently it was planned. Boo.

Several eyewitnesses who watched Nicki’s rehearsal Sunday morning tell TMZ she “walked on stage wearing the same dress — unzipped.”

One eyewitness says it caught her eye because she initially thought Nicki had come out in a robe.

Even during her rehearsal she wrapped her arms around it in a “weird” way to see how much would be exposed.

Mission accomplished: there’s a thousand-something Internet posts about it.
