During a rehearsal for Nicki Minaj's upcoming performance of "Anaconda" on the VMAs, a backup dancer was bitten by a six foot long snake, believed to be an anaconda.
Anacondas don't want none unless you got buns, hun -- or at least so it seems from a new report of a snake biting one of Nicki Minaj's booty-ful backup dancers during a VMA rehearsal. TMZ says that a run-through of "Anaconda" before Sunday night's ceremony left a dancer hospitalized after a six foot long snake (allegedly an actual anaconda) bit her "in front of everyone."
Apparently, Minaj was planning a very literal performance of the Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampling ass anthem, but even though the titular snake isn't poisonous, anaconda bites can still break the skin and transmit bacteria, so she may have to reconsider. For now, the snake was placed in a cage offstage.
It seems like this anaconda, much like Sir Mix-a-Lot's very own, gets sprung when round things are in his face.
