New Nicki Minaj Album Out in Early 2012, Says Birdman

NEW YORK (AP) - ABC News is apologizing for a wardrobe malfunction that gave singer Nicki Minaj more exposure than she bargained for.

Minaj appeared Friday (August 5) on the "Good Morning America" concert series, wearing a loose-fitting halter top that she occasionally had to adjust. As Minaj sang "Where Dem Girls At," some slips made one of her nipples fleetingly visible.

Despite a five-second delay, the slips were seen during the East Coast's live telecast. ABC said they were edited out of Friday's later feeds to other parts of the country.

ABC said the following in a statement: "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," ABC said in a statement.We are sorry that this occurred."

On the West Coast airing of GMA, wardrobe malfunction was not shown.

Minaj's malfunction didn't stop her from continuing on with her set. She continued performing "Moment for Life" and "Super Bass."
