Nicki Minaj has praised the dancer who was bitten by a snake during rehearsals for the rapper's set at the MTV Video Music Awards, revealing the brave stage star refused to let the injury stop her performing.

One of the hip-hop star's dancers was hurt by the reptile while practising a routine for Minaj's rendition of new single Anaconda, and she was hospitalised to treat the nasty bite. The snake was subsequently removed from the stage show, and Minaj reveals the bitten dancer refused to axe her performance at the prizegiving in Los Angeles on Sunday (24Aug14).

Minaj tells MTV.com, "One of dancers got bitten by a snake, and she handled it like a trooper. She went to the doctor, she's fine, she actually still performed."
