Nicki Minaj joins Britney Spears tour

Enrique Iglesias, who?

After the singer swiftly denounced reports that he was hitting the road with Britney Spears this summer, the “Femme Fatale” has confirmed that she’s launching an “all female” tour that will include Nicki Minaj.

In addition to the eccentric rapper, Spears will have Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo open at every stop on the North American tour. "This is the Femme Fatale tour and I'm thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor," Spears says on her website. "Can't wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road."

The singer also promised via Twitter that she and Minaj are going to bring the heat.

“Could not think of a sexier Femme Fatale than @NickiMinaj to come on tour with me! Gonna be a hot summer people!” Minaj responded a little cryptically, tweeting,"@britneyspears Hot INDEED Your Fierceness!!! This tour's gonna KICK ASS!!! The #FemmeFataleBARBZ r READY!!! Let's GO!!!," and following it up with, "let's keep the "other thing" a secret for now... "

The tour kicks off in Sacramento on June 16, and tickets go on sale beginning April 30.

Minaj, of course, is just one of the female artists that Spears has signed up to work with lately – the superstar also hopped on a remix of Rihanna's “S&M," which made its debut Monday.

The song was saucy even without the addition of Spears, who only ramped up the theme with lyrics like, “If I'm bad, tie me down/Shut me up, gag and bound me/Cause the pain is my pleasure/Nothing comes better.”

Rihanna announced the news on Twitter over the weekend, writing that her new collaboration would be with “@britneyspears one of the biggest worldwide popstars! U gangsta #EPIC.” Spears responded, “You ain't so bad yourself honey...”

    You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be actually one thing that I feel I'd never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very extensive for me. I'm taking a look forward for your subsequent put up, I'll attempt to get the hang of it!

    Yeah their music sucks, but they sure know how to lure in a huge crowd. How much of what they are promising/insinuating do you think will actually happen? You know they say a fool is born every day. And their sold out concerts prove it.

    damn, some of yall have got it all figured out. i mean im sure its easy to just say fU<& it, im gonna slap together a band, cd, tour, etc., thats why yall are all multimillionaires right? i mean if its that easy then why are you here, jealous, and broke? because its awesome talkin about tween idols like some gd pre pubescent lil girls? awesome! yes, their music sucks s#!t, but they can make millions as "musicians" with the musical talent of a rock. the one talent they have is selling their image, theyre not in it for the "music" or their fans, theyre in the money business! so yall should just chill out, put down your v-hate, have a coke and a smile, and stfu....laters

    These two can't sing a lick, and have no entertaining value at all. Take their clothes off though and I would pay to see some action. Minaj would be a backdoor goddess cuz at least three can fit back there. Britney would be all about A2M cuz she is trailer trash. That's good adult entertainment.

      Ummmm, what are you smoking? You make no refer to "these to (that's two) hot ass chicks"...but then say "blonde (and that's blondes) are overrated". You do realize Brittany is blonde right? So from what you say...even though Brittany is a hot ass chick...she's overrated cause she's blonde? You need to change what you are smoking. That, or go back to school.

      Carletta, please learn how to speak properly before you attempt to insult people. Resorting to violence and having a lack of proper syntax is embarrassing – for you and the school system that I'm hoping you attended.

    what's up with the pink eraser on her head? she trying to be a #2 pencil? it's about time that Britney gave it up as well. her songs pretty much suck – not that she knows how to write any at all as she is just the singer. so some other twit writes all of her bad music and she dances around (lip syncing most of the time). You might as well have a "rock band tour" – same thing...

      Awesome... It took me three tries to try and understand your message. I am still unsure of its true meaning as I'm sure to need some type of Rosetta Stone device to fully decipher the depth of your nonsensical ramblings.

      I know, I personally, can not wait to shell out a bunch of money to see white trash girl faux make out with a gaggle of ugly black chicks while singing about what slu ts they are. I've seen the bottoms of old ladies feet look better than the chick with the pink hair and gaudy accessories.
      What happened to all the hot classy blondes and cute whitney houston types out there?
