Nicki Minaj Joins Britney Spears’ Tour

Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears

It’s official. Nicki Minaj will be hitting the road with Britney Spears on her summer tour.

After reports surfaced earlier this month, sources confirm to TMZ that a deal was finalized several days ago. Britney and her team are said to be “elated” with the trek’s new opening act after Enrique Iglesias pulled at the last minute.

Those involved with the negotiations believe the Young Money raptress will create even more buzz for the pop superstar’s tour, which kicks off on June 17 in Sacramento, Calif.

Nicki is currently traveling the country with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and Travis Barker on the “I Am Music II” tour, winding down on April 29 in Canada.

How do you feel about Britney’s new opening act? We want to know!

    Another well played move by Nicki Minaj; this will definitely help establish her name and music with pop fans. Becoming an opening act for a pop icon such as Britney will only help her going forward, especially if she plans on prepping another album soon.

    @facts,Brit was the opening act for Mj,they even did a remix of one of is songs,so i guess brit f@ck up then right,
    brit is a pop legend,and for nicki to be the opening act it,s a good look for her,
    and you calling AAA young,well if he/she is young he/she is more mature than you and make more sense than you grown up @ss.

    It would make more sense for Nicki to tour with Rihanna since Rihanna & Nicki have two hot songs together…

  10. Ahahahahaha

    If this was put out by TMZ i dont wanna hear it yet but it would be a good move it really doesnt matter who she opening for hip-hop or a pop artist as long as the fans happy people gotta realize hip hop is no longer juss in the streets if they would do a survey more pop fans and young teens listen and buy it todae so like i said it doesnt really matter

    Why is lil wayne helping NO TALENT CLOWN WOMAN, nicki minaj instead of the talented mskeribaby. Someone needs to help her bad so that she wont have to traipsy around trying to steal the limelight from Ciara. Keri Hilson should be focusing on trying to figure out why the no talent nicki is stealing her limelight that lil wayne help her get and why she is not touring with him. She has more of a beef with her than Lil Kim. She ought to kick her bubble butt.

    Wow that’s huge for both of them. I feel like Nicki has created such a name for herself that she will be just as big of a name on this tour as Britney will be. Good for her!!!!

    This is huge 4 Nicki Minaj. A tour w/ Britney Spears will def put u on da map not dat she aint on it already but will def get her more shine and more fans 4 da new album. 4 her 2 b a nobody a few years back 2 being on tour w/ a legend like Britney Spears is wow 2 me. Congrat’s Nicki I cnt wait 2 go 2 dis tour. Femme Fatale and Pink Friday are def a few of my fav albums 4 2010 and 2011. Haters #KillYallSelfs. Sad 2 know dat in 2011 ya’ll still dnt got a life and hate on ppl dat r on top. BLAH!!!

    Opening for Britney? I’m assuming she’ll probably perform her Pop records opposed to her Rap records (ex: “Did It On Em’” & “Roman’s Revenge”) She’ll probably perform some of these records: “Your Love”, “Check It Out”, “Super Bass”, “Moment 4 Life”, and “Right Thru Me”

    It’ll definitely be good for her to score some new fans, there’s guaranteed to be a lot of fans there who’ve never really listened to Nicki’s music. Then after the tour she can work on her Sophomore album, release it & score #1 everything and then start on her OWN tour! Sounds like a game plan, lol.

    @Rosa y compare all dis girls 2 each other it’s just stupid. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Britney and Nicki Minaj are on dey own lane so relax. Gaga is Dance/Pop, Bryonce is R&B/ Pop, Britney is Pop and Nicki Minaj is Rap/HipHop so no need 2 even compare dem. Dey is all doing dey thing. Im a fan of every single one of dis girls. If that was a hating comment den grow up it’s 2011. Just support good music and move on. N e way’s good look 2 Nicki and good luck 2 all da others I will def b buying dey albums.
