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.

More so than the Spanish crooner who pulled out last month? Probably.

1-2 PUNCH: Two Femme Fatales. One horribly pricey ticket.

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.

Who decided on Britney's wardrobe, because it's crap? Even outlandish Nicki Minaj looks hip compared to her. Britney has a fab body but the clothes don't make it any justice. They look chunky and outdated. If they're meant to cover up her curves, why do that? I love Britney & I hope to see her looking fab on tour!!

I think this will be ultimately a much better decision. Screw Enrique. He isn't even relevant in the music scene and his new music is just generic crap.
