Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is keeping the “Anaconda” hype in full effect weeks after its steamy music video release by teaching moves to a handful of fashion models.
Footage of Nicki giving models some twerking exercise premiered online Sunday (September 7).
The bootylicious Barb went backstage at Alexander Wang’s spring 2015 fashion show, and taught models Irina Kravchenko, Ewa Wladymiruk, Valery Kaufman, and Aleah Morgan some of her ass-shaking moves from the music video, which has over 135 million views. Director Gordon von Steiner captured it all on Vine for Vogue. (Rap-Up)
Nicki Minaj makes these girls put in work in this twerking clip…
Recently, Nicki dismissed all of the attention her video’s booty-shaking had sparked.
“I didn’t think the video was so sexy or crazy, but I guess, I dunno,” Nicki said sheepishly of her latest Pinkprint video during a chat backstage at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, where she performed three times. (MTV)
Aside from this, reports claimed Nicki strategically planned her publicized MTV Video Music Awards wardrobe malfunction last month.
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. We’re told Nicki was wrapping her arms around the dress in a “weird” sort of way … trying to manipulate it to see how much would be exposed. (TMZ)
Minaj reportedly addressed the wardrobe malfunction following her onstage appearance.
Nicki Minaj avoided a majorly embarrassing moment when she opened the MTV Video Music Awards with Ariana Grande and Jessie J Sunday night. After finishing her solo “Anaconda” performance, Minaj joined the divas for “Bang Bang.” While they danced, she clutched the front of her cleavage-baring LBD. “You all know I had a wardrobe malfunction,” the rapper yelled to reporters backstage. The YSL-clad star added, “We ran out of time getting the dress zipped up.” (E! Online)
