Nicki Minaj Dancer Bitten By Snake

A backup dancer for rapper Nicki Minaj was bitten by a six-foot boa constrictor during rehearsals for Minaj’s upcoming VMA performance of her new single, “Anaconda,” TMZ reports. The dancer is being treated at a local Los Angeles-area hospital. It’s not clear whether the snake will be used in Sunday night’s performance. Meanwhile on Friday night, another VMAs performer, rapper Iggy Azalea, fell off the stage during a live performance of her song, “Fancy.” Azalea continued rapping, however, and later posted an Instagram video of the tumble, writing, “Sorry but it would be a crime not to share hthis with you all, I know I laughed. #StillFinishedtheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn.”
