Most celebrities attend public events in sexy dresses to grab attention but many get embarrassment instead. Singer Nicki Minaj also suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the 31st annual MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday and she is not shying away from it. She spoke about the goof up to the media and even took to social media to apologise to her fans.

The 31-year-old told reporters that she didn't have enough time to zip her dress while switching her outfits between her performance of "Anaconda" and "Bang Bang" at the MTVAs, causing wardrobe malfunction. She however managed to hold her dress together and avoid an embarrassing nip-slip though she ended up exposing lots of flesh.

"We ran out of time getting the dressed zipped up!" Hollywood Life quoted the singer as saying in press room after her performance. She also took to social media and apologized to her fans for the fashion faux pas. 

She also posted a picture on instagram with the caption: "God is good. As long as a nipple didn't come out to play, I'm fine. Love my team. CASPER, Rushka, Adam, Oscar, Joyce, Gee... Many more to name but they're all winners! No weak links. There's no greater feeling than having ppl who inspire u and who work passionately and relentlessly to get the job done. the myx is starting to make me feel real good right now thank u to Slim, Richelle, Katina and the entire REPUBLIC team."
