“It is in no way life-threatening, but scary,” Chris Velvin, director of production safety for Viacom Media Networks, shared to MTV. “We wanted her to start getting treatment as soon as possible.”

    Too bad it didn’t bit Nicki on her huge, mutant @ss. Of course, it probably would have swollen up to unbelievable proportions and taken over the city.

  • lo

    The snake was scared and did what snakes do when they feel threatened. It’s a shame he didn’t bite Nicki…maybe that airhead would learn that wild animals are not objects and not accessories to add to her lame performances.

    A snake during a VMA performance? Hmmmm wonder where have i seen that before, in 2001! Be original for once, you mammoth-@ssed b!tch

    Lame article. Snake bites are nothing. Even 6 ft pythons don’t give dangerous or scary bites. A music video is not an ideal situation for a snake, so it is no surprise though.

    Why do they have to use snakes, or any other animals for that matter? Idiots, idiots everywhere.
