Oh the irony. A dancer for Nicki Minaj was bitten by a 6-foot long snake, believed to be an anaconda, during a rehearsal for the MTV Video Music Awards, reports TMZ.
During a run-through for Sunday’s show, sources say the rapper was on stage performing her single “Anaconda” when a female dancer was bitten by the reptile. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated, but her condition is unknown.
The snake was promptly removed from the stage in a container. Anacondas are non-venomous but can transmit bacteria that can lead to serious infections.
