Nicki Minaj was fully prepared for another wardrobe malfunction right on stage. The malfunction is not the first for Minaj, who is no stranger to inadvertently exposing too much of herself while performing. The wardrobe problem happened at Manchester Arena to kick off the U.K. leg of her tour.
“You guys have seen my boobs before,” the singer joked with the crowd. “You won’t tell anyone, will you?”
Sure enough, soon after she began belting out her songs, the pop star’s breasts began to make their way slightly out of her tight black wardrobe. Fortunately, though, any malfunction and slips were avoided thanks to some well-placed pasties.
While the American Idol judge didn’t seem too embarrassed by the situation, she did address it later in the show, according to the Daily Mail.
The nip slip didn’t slow the American Idol judge, and she continued the concert with sexy costumes, including a black bustier and bedazzled bra. The Manchester performance was just the second concert in her Pink Friday: Reloaded tour, and she kicked off her tour the night before at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena.
However, the rapper had warned audience members earlier in the night not to be too surprised if she or her dancers’ stage costumes exposed a little more than expected, telling them: “This is our first show so excuse any boobs popping out or any penises popping out.”
It’s not the first time Minaj has faced a nip-slip onstage - she accidentally exposed her breast while performing live in New York’s Central Park for US breakfast show Good Morning America last year.
