Nicki Minaj Experiences Wardrobe Malfunction On Live Television

Written by Michael Lambarde on Aug. 07, 2011

R&B Singer Nicki Minaj had a wardrobe malfunction on live television Friday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America that slipped through the censors even with a five-second delay. The incident in question occurred while Minaj was singing her verse from David Guetta’s Where Them Girls At to fans at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield and suddenly her breast was accidentally revealed. She and ABC immediately received criticism and complaints from viewers, forcing ABC to apologize.

“Although we had a five-second delay in place for the Nicki Minaj concert on GMA, the live East Coast feed of the concert regrettably included certain fleeting images of the performer that were taken out of later feeds of the broadcast in other time zones. We are sorry that this occurred,” the ABC statement said.

Although it was later edited out for the west coast, Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council, was outraged by the occurrence. “For the umpteenth time in recent memory a morning news show has included inappropriate content for children and families,” Winter told TMZ. Regarding ABC’s apology, he wasn’t having any of it. “Instead of asking for forgiveness, they need to stop apologizing and implement the five second delay that so many Americans have been calling for.”

Given the five-second delay, a spokesperson for ABC called revealing the mishap was a “human error” on their part. During the performance, Minaj was wearing a low-cut green crop top and pink jacket. Minaj is currently on the “Femme Fatale” tour with Britney Spears in North America and decided to make a stop in New York City to be part of the ongoing GMA 2011 concert series.

      It was a boob, every woman has them, and if men didn’t want to see them then most of us wouldn’t be here. Just get over it! If half the effort was spent on education that is spent on criticizing, we would be a much better country.

    why do they have to wear outfits that ‘almost’ show the breasts, anyway? Does it help them sing better? I am so tired of seeing breasts and giving in to men, who we then feed Viagra and lock up for molesting our young people. Draw a line somewhere! There is no need to prove anyone has breasts. Or a penis or any other sexual part. Let’s all grow up a bit, and enjoy life without turning everything into a sexual enticement.

      Good lord…maybe you should move to Iran and just cover your entire body. It was a boob, get over it. Its people like you that make breast a sex object by making young people think to wrong to see. Go to most countries and its not viewed any different than a mans chest. Just stay in your home and live like a hermit.

        Dear optionmargin,
        there’s a big difference between living like they do in iran and having someones tits flopping around for everyone to see. she’s not saying women should cover their faces feet legs etc. just the stuff that’s considered to be private. I.e. breasts and vagina. Lol!!!

  • Zombiecat7589

    I dont see anything wrong, its just a breast, i can understand if she stripped stark naked and walked around stage. ABC shouldnt take fault over a wardrobe miss hap. parents these days, are too scared about seeing sexual women body parts on television, dude its a boob who cares.

  • Alan Verhille

    Big frikkin whoop. A boob. Wow. Violence galore, but show a boob….Parents Television Council my ass.

  • Lilblueeyes25

    Things haappen an it could happen to anyone on tv u just gotta move passed it. Its not like she went out to flash her breast. She had to feel realy upset about it an people just want her to feel worse then she all ready does.

  • Secreteyes369

    Yes everyones got them but that dosent mean we have to take the risk of one popping out. Its called show some respect for others and yourself wear decent clothing!!! Its not that hard people don’t want your boobs our anything else for that matter to be seen don’t wear something that could possibly risk being malfunctioned. And for all you people who think its just a boob try stepping into some parents shoes. Would you want your little girl out in public dressed scantily clad and showing her bosom to any and everyone who looks her direction? Because she thinks its cool because celebs and strippers do it? And don’t forget the possibilty of being raped by some stranger. Wtf is wrong with society today? You don’t have to dress skanky to be sexy. Why don’t we take the time to instil common sense in the younger generation? And for all the people who still think its no big deal, I’m truly sorry for you.

    • Shonuff

      I agree! I explain to women all the time, you don’t have to be dressed like a hooker to get attention. Besides it’s not the attention you want anyway. I definitely cringe when I see a little girl scantily clad. It’s so unnecessary.

      • Secreteyes369

        I’m glad to heat some people care about our younger generation. Thanks for the back up :-)

        • Secreteyes369

          Lol see not heat hahaha!!!

  • Jerk

    Who cares if her boob popped out? The real question is: why do these groups find the human body disgusting?

    • Secreteyes369

      that’s pure assumption on your part. No one said its disgusting. Lol!!! But there are somethings that should be considered private. Hence the name private parts :-) lmao!!!

  • CALIRIDER JOE

    secreteyes sht the fuk up

  • Buddyalpha21

    Whats funny is its sexy and hot to show the tops of breast and cleavage but, show a nipple and the world is coming to an end…how is it any different than a desperate housewives commercial??? Stupid ass people get over yourselves…

  • Vogelsong17

    whys everyone hatin on nicki? Its a tit grow up! Its skin and fat? Just because you or your girl dont have it dont mean you have to be haters! Barbie Bitch!

  • Guest

    Because they live underground where light does not reach their eyes

  • Theairie1

    If it is such a family atmosphere, for Saturday moenings, go back to showing cartoons. It was just a nipple, I’m sure she was embarrassed that that occurred. She wants to be known for music, not cleavage.

  • skiitz

    1st ov all yew qot the the fiirst liine ronq .. nicki minaj iiz knot ah r&b siinger !!

  • HowlingMoon

    We all make mistakes even on television but to make such a big fuss over it is childish. They shuld b happy that she didnt strip naked and start vibrating her assets towards the crowd. She is jus as embrass as if it was 2 happen 2 any of us. I remember when some rapper got critized for performing on stage and his fly was down. Its happens 2 the best of us. Tell them to “zip it up” and keep it moving.
