The 32-year-old singer had jaws dropping and eyes bulging when she flashed a hint of nipple on Wednesday's Watch What Happens Live.
It wasn't the first time Nicki has given fans a sneak peek of her bosom, but it sure felt like the first time for those shocked Bravo viewers who turned in to hear her chat with host Andy Cohen.
The energetic Cohen introduced his guest by saying, 'On the most important day of the year. It's an Andy Cohen spectacular It's Nicki Minaj everybody!' .
The camera then panned in close on Nicki – and her 'spectacular' nip slip that was seen by everyone watching the show for a few minutes until censors stepped in and blurred the image.
The singer seemed totally unaware of her wardrobe malfunction as she sat smiling on the couch, clapping along with the live audience.
Nicki's outfit was its usual risque too, featuring a plunging black top with zippered front, skintight black leather trousers and black high heels.
Cohen then asked the superstar about that now-famous VMAs wardrobe malfunction.
'I was very panicked,' Nicki said. 'I contemplated not going out at all but then I would let Jessie and Arie down, and I didn't want to do that on their moment.
Wardrobe malfunction-prone Nicki Minaj doesn't have the best of luck when it comes to keeping her clothes in place. However, that aside we have to say that this is the chicest outfit we've seen her in for a while.
A refreshing change from her on-stage fluro-tastic ensembles, Nicki opted for black leather panel leggings teamed with a peplum hem jacket and patent heels.
Peplum jackets are a great addition to any workwear wardrobe, they’re a smart choice meanwhile a peplum adds a feminine twist to tailoring.
Nicki’s jacket is by Givenchy and is available to buy at Selfridges- just follow the link on the right to snap one up now. But if you’d rather spend less, luckily the high street is awash with great alternatives starting from just £18 (all below)… Just make sure you get the right size!
