Nicki Minaj's Backup VMAs Dancer Explains How She Got Bit By That Snake
Nicki Minaj shows off all of her assets in a sheer shirt as she walks through LAX Airport on Wednesday (September 3) in Los Angeles.
The 31-year-old rapper was joined for her flight by her boyfriend Safaree Samuels.
During the 2014 MTV VMAs rehearsals, one of Nicki‘s dancers was bit by a snake – and she’s dishing all about what happened!
“The trainers told me the only reason a snake would attack, is if they felt like they were at harm, so I tried to readjust to make sure that he felt safe on me. But right when I did one trick, I guess he must’ve felt I wasn’t holding onto him, so he went ahead and took a nice little bite out of my left arm,” Nicki‘s dancer Genise Ruidiaz said to MTV.
“Thankfully, when it happened I didn’t try to take the snake off me and scream and throw my arms up in the arm. I stood still. I went into complete shock. I was trying to focus on my breathing, instead of getting the snake off, because he was still wrapped around me. I thought that if I controlled my breathing and fear of what just happened he would calm down and let go of me, but he didn’t. He was holding onto my arm for dear life. He definitely had his mouth around my arm for a good 45 seconds, but to me it felt like an hour,” Genise added. We’re glad she’s okay now!
