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.

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.

it’s good everybody is ok.
