After lots of speculation, Britney Spears confirmed Tuesday (April 12) that she’d be bringing Nicki Minaj along on tour. The pairing of the Femme Fatale and the Barbie seems like a match made in pop-culture heaven, and Minaj couldn’t agree more.
“I am beyond thrilled to tour with Britney. It’s an honor. She’s an icon,” Nicki told MTV News in an exclusive statement. “This summer will be one for the books!”
Shortly after announcing the tour, Spears and Minaj struck up a Twitter conversation that felt as if they were already throwing slumber parties on their tour bus.
“Could not think of a sexier Femme Fatale than @NickiMinaj to come on tour with me! Gonna be a hot summer people!” Spears tweeted, kicking off the Twittermance. “The #FemmeFataleBARBZ wont know what hit em. Ready or not people, here we come….”
“Hot INDEED Your Fierceness!!! This tour’s gonna KICK ASS!!! The #FemmeFataleBARBZ r READY!!! Let’s GO!!!” Minaj tweeted back to the star, before adding, “Let’s keep the ‘other thing’ a secret for now…”
Minaj is set to call into Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday to reveal what that big secret is, and Spears teased her fans one final time: “All good things to those who wait….”
Minaj will join Spears after she wraps up Lil Wayne’s I Am Still Music Tour, which finishes May 1 in New Jersey. Spears’ tour kicks off June 16 in Sacramento, California, and will run for 26 dates through North America, winding up August 13 in Toronto. Select tickets go on sale April 30.
“This is the Femme Fatale tour, and I’m thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and [opening acts] Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor,” Spears said early Tuesday about the tour. “Can’t wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road.”
