Nicki Minaj performs Anaconda at Fashion Rocks and boy, does she shakes what her mama and papa gave her.
During the CBS live telecast of the fashion and music filled night, Nicki Minaj took the stage at the Barclay center in Brooklyn to perform her bootylicious hit, Anaconda. Nicki sported a high pony with a jeweled bra top and matching denim mini, MINI skirt, with a pair of wedged sneaks and of course she’s gotta be wearing some briefs underneath with all of those high-kick leg moves . But interestingly, I think I hear the artist say before the show that she’s been dressing more subdued??
She’s clearly not referring to her performance looks – I mean, look at her Anaconda styles from the past few weeks. (insert several photos full screen with dings). Girl looks good, and girl looks super sexy and risqué. Oh, duh, she must be referring to her red carpet fashions, which for this night, is absolutely gorgeous, more classic but also super sexy too. Back to the performance style!
So is this look giving anyone else Ariana Grande déjà vu or is it just me? We kinda had the same feeling about JLo’s stage performance too – but it’s gotta just be the high pony tail! But back to Mama Barb, of course in addition to whipping out her signature Anaconda chair dance from the music vid, she got playfully friendly with her male, shirtless back up dancers. Smiling faces in the audience during Nicki’s performance included Paris Hilton and Carmen Electra along with a more reserved Jlo who kept a straight face throughout the performance – but I gotta point out that she was clapping along to support! Now some reports are saying that JLo was throwing shade Nicki’s way for not straight-up groovin’ along to the performance like others in the crowd, but I think she was just calmly observing and people are just trrrrrying to create drama between the two artists – since they’re both into the booty right now. But since we’re on the topic of these two loves, we’d like to point out that JLo’s ex, Casper Smart actually choreographed Nicki’s Anaconda video and also helped Nicki prep for the event that night. So that could have contributed to her subtle support, but who knows? JLo’s a lady boss who we adore and who, ps, also took to the stage at Fashion Rocks for a steamy performance of her new single “Booty.” With a night filled with fashion and music, butts are bound to come into play. Embrace it.
Other performers of the night included Usher, Rita Ora, and KISS along with an unexpected strip tease from Justin Bieber but that’s another story.
