Touring It Up: Britney Spears Announces Tour With Nicki Minaj

Confirming recent rumors, Britney Spears has announced she’ll take to the road this summer with an all-female bill featuring special guest Nicki Minaj.

Spears originally planned to tour with Enrique Iglesias this summer, but Iglesias bowed out of the outing as it was announced. The re-tooled tour kicks off June 16 in Sacramento, CA, and will be on the road through mid-August, hitting more than two dozen North American cities. Tickets begin to go on sale in select markets on April 30.

Also joining Spears on the tour will be Jessie and the Toy Boys, led by 22-year-old pop singer Jessie Malakouti. Her “band” — best known for the track “We Own the Night”, which is being used in the CW Network’s promos — consists of male mannequins. Rounding out the bill is Australian pop band Nervo, led by twin sisters Miriam and Olivia Nervo (also known as The Nervo Twins).

“This is the ‘Femme Fatale’ tour and I’m thrilled to have Nicki Minaj, Jessie and the Toy Boys, and Nervo join me and get everyone on the dance floor.” Spears said in a press release. “Can’t wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road.”

Spears is supporting her new album, “Femme Fatale,” which is expected to debut atop the new Billboard 200 album chart. Five of her previous albums have reached No. 1.

“Femme Fatale,” has already spawned the No. 1 single “Hold it Against Me,” and the set’s second single, “Till The World Ends,” was recently unleashed.

Exclusive via MTV News: Nicki Minaj ‘Beyond Thrilled’ About Britney Spears Tour

‘This summer will be one for the books!’ Nicki promises MTV News.

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…”

Nicki Minaj phoned Ryan Seacrest to dish about the highly-talked about performance plans.

The hip-hop princess left the following message on the radio hosts’ voicemail:

“I’m calling to let everyone know how thrilled I am — how honored I am to be going on the road with the iconic miss Britney Spears this Summer. I just know that when the Femme Fatales and The Barbs get together we’re going to kick major ass.”

Nicki continued, “I’m looking forward to creating a new, a bigger, a brighter, a more spectacular show, and I’m just really, really excited to make history with Britney.”

Spears teased her fans one final time:

“All good things to those who wait….”

Minaj is currently in the midst of the “I Am Still Music Tour,” headlined by Lil Wayne. That tour wraps May 1 in East Rutherford, NJ. Minaj will join Spears shortly after she wraps up. 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.”

Music In Ya Ear!: Rihanna – “A Child is Born”

Rihanna gets into the Christmas spirit with her new reggae-inspired Christmas song, “A Child Is Born.” Christmas is still roughly two months away, but Rihanna had released a snippet of the new reggae-flavoured Christmas song back in September and let me start off by saying that it really got me into the Christmas spirit. It’s a huge change from the usual festive ballads, Rihanna has gone for an upbeat sound on the track.

The song is featured on a compilation album titled ‘Now That’s What I Call Christmas, Vol. 4,’ which was released yesterday (Tuesday, October 12).

The new album consists of 36 tracks, which will be split on 2 discs (No you don’t have to go out and buy two separate albums, they are both in one album).  As for the other tracks included on the album, will include, Lady GaGa‘s “Christmas Tree”, Britney Spears “My Only Wish (This Year),” Christina Aguilera’s “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” Kelly Rowland’s “Wonderful Christmastime” and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”.

Rihanna had also recently announced that the song “Only Girl (In The World)” will be the first track to be taken from her next album “Loud”, which will be released in November.

‘I didn’t want to go backward and remake [2008 album] ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna,’ she said during a webchat on her official website Rihannanow.com.

‘I’m gonna miss the [2009 album] ‘Rated R’ era too, but NOTHING compares to the album I just made.’

Listen to the song below….

Music News: Pharrell Launches News Web Site for Teens

Between writing and producing hits for the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, designing a successful clothing and shoe line and prepping his own band N.E.R.D.‘s disc for this summer, who has time to watch the news? Pharrell Williams, that’s who.

However, the award-collecting rapper doesn’t have his sights focused on his own news intake. Oh, no: He’s producing something very special for young adults by creating Kidult.com, an online venture inspired by his teenage fans to report on politics, technology, health, fashion, science, business, environmental issues, sports, gaming and entertainment news geared just for them. The site’s staff includes a team of young writers doing interviews with celebs and “cool job” professionals including Justin Bieber, Will.I.Am, Miranda Cosgrove and the head costume designer of American Idol!

But there’s more: Political polls are conducted regularly, and users can even listen to President Obama‘s weekly radio address or learn how to pay off credit card debt (even I need that!).

“Kidult is a reliable news source that speaks directly to teenagers,” says Williams. “It also gives them a chance to get involved and speak to other young people about issues they care about. Kidult is the site I wish I had when I was in high school.”

Visit the site at www.Kidult.com for more information.

Music News: VMA Breakdown

It was an intense and exciting Sunday evening as the “2009 Video Music Awards” took over New York City, causing quite a stir with Kanye West‘s outburst, Madonna‘s surprise appearance, Janet Jackson‘s tribute performance to her brother Michael and the cast of ‘Twilight”s big reveal of their extended ‘New Moon’ trailer.

Madonna opened the awards show, paying tribute to the late Michael Jackson.

Madonna called Michael Jackson a “hero,” a “king” and a “human being” as she paid tribute to the King of Pop at MTV’s “2009 Video Music Awards,” prior to Janet Jackson‘s anticipated performance.

“When I was six, my mother died. I think he got the shorter end of the sick,” she says of the music legend. “I never had a mother but he never had a childhood.”

Madonna said when she learned of Michael’s death while preparing for her tour, she felt as if she had “abandoned him.”

“I know his pain,” she said, referring to the constant media attention the King of Pop received.

Madonna said his legacy lives on, starting with her two sons who are big fans of the late singer. “There’s a whole lot of crotch grabbing and moon-walking in my house,” Madonna joked.

She concluded her tribute saying, “He was a king, but he was also a human being. … Long live the king.”

Following her words, dancers made their way to the stage to perform to Michael‘s acclaimed song “Thriller.” Janet Jackson followed that performance up with her own tribute, singing the song “Scream,” a duet she recorded with her brother.

Taylor Swift then went up onstage to accept the award for Best Female Music Video from Taylor Lautner and Shakira, but her speech was cut short when Kanye West grabbed the microphone from her, declaring that Beyonce’ Knowles had the best music video of the year.

Swift was also amongst the performers of the night, in addition to Green Day, Pink, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys and Kid Cudi. Cudi dedicated his performance to the late Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, while Pink performed high in the sky with a trapeze artist.

The show concluded with a preview of Michael Jackson‘s anticipated documentary ‘This Is It.’

Here is the list of Moon Men winners at the 2009 VMA’s:

Breakthrough Video- Matt and Kim, “Lessons Learned”

Female Video- Taylor Swift, “You Belong with Me”

Rock Video- Green Day, “21 Guns”

Pop Video- Britney Spears, “Womanizer”
