Young Money star Nicki Minaj continues to remain in the headlines this week after experiencing a wardrobe malfunction during her “Good Morning America” performance Friday (August 5) morning.

One of Minaj’s breasts became exposed during her “Where Dem Girls At” set.

The 28-year-old singer appeared on GMA’s concert series Friday with a blonde wig, graphic-print pants, an umbrella-like skirt and a skin tight halter top. During her song “Where Dem Girls At,” the top shifted and her left nipple became as famous as she is. Minaj looked shocked when the slip occurred, but pulled her top up and went right back to performing, singing hits “Moment 4 Life” and “Super Bass.” Her breast was visible to viewers on the East Coast, leaving organizations like the Parents Television Council very displeased with ABC.

Despite it being accidental, Minaj’s televised mishap angered certain organizations.

The Parents Television Council is blasting “Good Morning America” for airing Nicki Minaj’s nip slip on live TV this morning … saying the whole thing COULD have been prevented with a 5-second delay. TMZ spoke with Tim Winter, president of the PTC, who tells us, “For the umpteenth time in recent memory a morning news show has included inappropriate content for children and families.” He adds, “Instead of asking for forgiveness, they need to stop apologizing and implement the five second delay that so many Americans have been calling for.” (TMZ)
Following the incident, ABC issued a statement on what went down.

Now, ABC, the network that aired the show and missed the wardrobe malfunction (although they have a five-second delay) is apologizing for the mishap. “Although we had a five-second delay in place for the Nicki Minaj concert on GMA , the live East Coast feed of the concert regrettably included certain fleeting images of the performer that were taken out of later feeds of the broadcast in other time zones.

Minaj also hit up Twitter to speak on her live set.

“Doing romans revenge for the GMA crowd a capella after the cameras stopped rolling & having them spit every lyric with RAGE >>>>>>>>>>>,” she tweeted August 5th. (Nicki Minaj’s Twitter)
