On Wednesday’s (Sept. 10) “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Nicki Minaj stops by and, of course, the hot topic of discussion is her wardrobe malfunction at the 2014 VMAs. Minaj explains:

“I had, I don’t know, about 40-50 seconds to change from the ‘Anaconda’ outfit into the ‘Bang Bang’ outfit. … I was like I have to put on a black dress really quickly and sure enough we didn’t have a real quick-change right there. So it was literally my whole team just standing there holding curtains around me and it was pitch black. I couldn’t see anything and right before it was time for me to walk out they went to zip it up … and right there I thought I died. … I didn’t have any underwear on. No underwear. No bra, because I had just taken off the ‘Anaconda’ outfit. So I was butt-a** naked.”

In case it every happens again, Ellen then gifts Nicki a giant safety pin.

Below, Ellen shows off her own version of “Anaconda,” which is hilarious and … so alarming. Goodness.
