Britney Spears-Nicki Minaj Tour: It's On!

by at . Comments

After extensive talks, Nicki Minaj has officially joined Britney Spears' upcoming summer tour, replacing Enrique Iglesias as the star's opening act.

A source close to the 26-year-old Minaj confirmed to E! that she's aboard and tour organizers expect the tandem should be a big concert draw.

Indeed, the choice of the Trinidad and Tobago-born hip-hop diva is probably for the best, given how foolish Iglesias' camp just made Ms. Spears look.

Hours after the pop princess revealed to Good Morning America that they joined forces, Enrique freaked about playing second fiddle and just bailed.

Other artists besides Minaj mentioned as replacements included Joe Jonas and Usher. Britney's Femme Fatale tour kicks off June 17 in Sacramento.
