"I was very panicked. I contemplated not going out at all but I didn't want to let Jessie and Ari down and do that to them and ruin their moment. I wanted to crawl under a freaking rock. But when you're in a situation like that, you think everyone could see the panic on your face, but when I got off the stage they said I handled it well." Nicki Minaj almost didn't take the stage for her performance of Bang Bang with Jessie J and Ariana Grande during the MTV Vmas in August (14) after her dress broke during a costume change.
