Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Dancer Bitten Snake

During rehearsals for Nicki Minaj’s upcoming VMA performance of new single, “Anaconda,” a backup dancer was bitten by a 6-foot snake after she startled the reptile on stage, according to a report by TMZ.

The dancer, whose name is unknown, is being treated at a local hospital in Los Angeles.

The snake, according to the L.A. Fire Department, was a boa constrictor.

It’s unknown whether the snake will still be featured in Minaj’s performance on Sunday.

MTV’s Video Music Awards will be broadcast live at 9/8c ET.
