Blink and miss the tarantula crawling up Ms. Minaj. Spiders, it seems, are a bit easier to work with than boa constrictors.
One of the hottest nights in music went down Sunday, Aug. 24 in Inglewood, Calif. Here’s a recap of some unforgettable moments at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Before she was shaking her booty at the MTV Video Music Awards and rapping about “Pills N Potions,” Nicki Minaj had other career aspirations.
In the Hannah Lux Davis-directed video, which premiered right after the ladies left the MTV VMAs stage, Jessie J struts into town with her hot pink Beats headphones, riling up all the men with her rather forward requests.
The song was originally released July 29 and has peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Leading up to the two-and-a-half hour show, fans were excited to see Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande yet some surprise performances left the audience in awe.
They don’t call her Queen Bey for nothing.
On the biggest night in music Nicki Minaj, alongside Jessie J and Ariana Grande performed the opening number with a bit of a malfunction.

The Dr. Luke-produced track may or may not be from Juicy’s upcoming The Hustle Continues.
