Partnering with Vogue.com, Minaj, 30, set her praise of grand posteriors aside to teach Irina Kravchenko, Ewa Wladymiruk, Valery Kaufman, and Aleah Morgan the Anaconda dance backstage at the Alexander Wang fashion show in New York City on Sept. 6.

As if walking in uncomfortably high heels and maintaining their composure on the runway wasn’t bad enough, the game models had to face just one more task before hitting the catwalk. 

Wearing a light blue and purple two-piece from the designer, a high ponytail, and black pumps, Minaj entered the backstage area declaring that there was a serious “anaconda problem!” 

The models, dressed in uniform light blue denim shorts and white tank tops, could barely keep up with the booty bouncing dance moves.
