Nicki Minaj Dancer Suffers Snake Bite During VMA Rehearsal

It wasn’t quite an “anaconda,” but things got a little dangerous during Nicki Minaj’s VMA rehearsal. This past Friday (Aug. 22), while performing her breakout hit, a contortionist hired to perform on the MTV stage was bitten by a 6-foot boa constrictor. The snake, which has been used in performances for over 15 years, is reportedly not venemous and usually unaggressive.

Minaj and the animal’s trainer were on hand to support the dancer, who has since been admitted to a nearby CA hospital with non life threatening injuries.

If this is any indication of Minaj’s performance later on tonight, we probably have something epic to look forward to.
