Nicki Minaj Walks Met Gala 2022 Red Carpet With ‘boobs Popping Out’


Nicki Minaj narrowly managed to avoid a wardrobe malfunction on the Met Gala 2022 red carpet.

After famously skipping last year’s fancy fête over its vaccine mandate, the “Anaconda” rapper — who seems to have come around to getting jabbed — attended Monday’s ball in a feathery Burberry bustier gown, leather leggings and a matching baseball cap.

But as she explained on the carpet, her dress’ bust left her, well, busting out.

“The only unplanned thing about my look is my boobs popping out, because they made my cup size a little small,” Minaj joked.

“Enjoy these titties, ’cause y’all ain’t gonna see that ever again.”

The musician — who finished off her daring ensemble with gemstones all over her arms, chest and face applied by Pat McGrath’s team — attended alongside Burberry creative director Riccardo Tisci.

“I’m here with my baby, Riccardo Tisci, that’s really my friend, so I’m here supporting him,” Minaj said.

The “Starships” songstress added that her favorite part of the look was her sporty leather hat, which fortunately seemed to fit her just fine.

“I’m obsessed with the hat. I didn’t want to do the look if I couldn’t do the hat, so he let me wear the hat!” she shared.

The Met Gala took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on May 2 with Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda serving as celebrity co-hosts.

This year’s theme theme is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” and the dress code called for “gilded glamour.”

Minaj was certainly gilded, thanks to all of those body gems.
