Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Backup Dancer Bitten by Snake During VMA Rehearsal

Originally posted 08/23/2014 11:45AM

If Nicki Minaj's sexually charged, booty-exposing "Anaconda" video didn't already grab enough pre-MTV Video Music Awards headlines, a real-live snake set to be used during her performance has created some slithering news.

During a Friday rehearsal, one of Minaj's backup dancers was bitten by a 6-foot-long boa constrictor named Rocky who was being used as a prop during the song, MTV reported. Minaj was onstage and rushed to her dancer's side after the bite occurred.
