Feminine perfection was the story of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. However, one performer got hit with a very human flaw: The wardrobe malfunction.

Nicki Minaj came with one of the more shocking moments of the night -- an unintentional one. She was seen clutching parts of her black dress as if she was trying to prevent it from falling apart. This went down during her show-opening performance of 'Bang Bang' with Ariana Grande and Jessie J.

The costume struggle occurred right after she changed out of her revealing costume for the 'Anaconda' performance. Some viewers were amazed at how quickly Minaj changed, but the surprised turned into a near-disaster. According to Billboard, 'The Pinkprint' creator said, "We ran out of time getting the dress zipped up."

This isn't the first time Minaj suffered such a faux pas. The rhymer suffered a brief nipple slip during a 2011 'Good Morning America' performance.
