Nicki Minaj’s nipple almost slipped on ‘Idol’

Because gossip blogs are basically 63% nipple (the other 37% is composed of DERP, it’s a science, really) Nicki Minaj went ahead and nearly slipped a nipple while she was performing her latest single Starships on American Idol last night. Apparently, some people freak out over a tiny circle of skin. Page Six reports:

Minaj arrived on the Idol stage, exiting from a pink and purple UFO. The singer wore a blonde wig, and showed off her ample curves in a rainbow colored bra top and skirt. As Minaj danced, her chest bounced heavily. At one point in the performance, the rapper turned around, appearing to tuck herself back into her top.

“That was fun,” host Ryan Seacrest said, interviewing the star as she finished her song. “There were parts of that performance that were a little high-risk, if you know what I’m saying.” Minaj sounded embarrassed grumbling, “I know.” But she quickly bounced back, making a pitch to be a judge on the show.

If you’re the kind of person who thinks it’s obscene for a woman to be flashing her boobs on television and you complain about it to whoever you can reach, bear in mind, Idol features judge Steven Tyler‘s crazy ass face in every episode. I totally defy you to tell me that a female’s nipple is actually worse for your children and your own purity than staring at Steven’s weathered mug.
