Nicki Minaj Calls out CBS for Cutting her Fashion Rocks! Performance

Nicki Minaj recently performed a noticeably toned down version of her infectious single “Anaconda” on Tuesday’s Fashion Rocks! compared to her VMA performance last month and record breaking video. Yesterday she revealed to her fans that the performance we saw did not match the one she planned to execute.

“My darlingz, I wish you could’ve seen the choreography on the second verse of ANACONDA…absolutely divine…CBS decided not to show it,” the Trinidadian beauty shared via instagram.

Ouch! What’s more, the network chose not to inform Nicki prior to the live airing.  Minaj noted that fans were already tuned into show by the time she found out and had she known, she would have changed choreography to deliver a full show.

Now if you happened to catch the VMAs on MTV a couple weeks ago, you might be able to guess what you missed. Further, tune into the Bootyful Barbie’s version of this song on Vevo; I am surprised it does not have an “18 and over” stamp attached.

Although, more primetime friendly, the Fashion Rocks! performance did not seem to be missing any buns to us though. Further, I wonder if what she had in store was more racy than the 2013 Billboard Awards lap dance we saw during the same time slot on ABC last year.

We will not have to wonder too long as Nick promises fans will witness her new moves soon.
