Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj & Jessie J “Break Free,” “Anaconda” & “Bang Bang”

Within the first hour of the 2014 VMAs, Nicki Minaj hit the stage three times! Not only did she perform her raunchy booty-jam “Anaconda,” the “Pink Print” rapper joined Ariana Grande and Jessie on stage to perform their pop anthem “Bang Bang.” Nick suffered a slight wardrobe malfunction, but carried on like a rock star.
