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.”

Nicki Minaj brings her sexy on the cover of Elle’s May Music issue. Nicki leaves behind the colorful wigs and random ridiculous ensembles for a more tamed look. Elle’s Music Issue has a dual cover with star Gwen Stefani on it; the issue features artists Adele, Willow SmithJennifer Hudson, Feist, Hillary Scott, Robyn, Stevie Nicks, Florence Welch, and Aretha Franklin.

On being a rapper: “I always wanted to play with the boys. I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character – a superhero.”

On her sense of style: “I tend to like booties…[pause]”—she takes a beat to clarify: no sexual meaning implied—“and really flashy shoes: totally studded out, in five colors with an insane platform.”

On her song “My Chick Bad” with Ludacris: “[I] chose to do punch lines and be comical, to show how bad I am lyrically, as opposed to how sexy I think I am.”

All On The Cover: Nicki Minaj Covers Billboard Magazine

Nicki Minaj is gracing the cover of Billboard Magazine for the month of November 2010. Nicki recently sat for an interview with BILLBOARD Magazine to promote ‘PINK FRIDAY’.

Check out a few excerpts from her interview after the jump….

https://i0.wp.com/minajphotos.com/albums/magazines/billboard%202010/001.jpg

On her last job:

“The last job I had was as an office manager in a little, tiny room where I literally wanted to strangle this guy because he was so loud and obnoxious,” Minaj recalls. “I would go home with stress pains in my neck and my back. That’s when I went to my mother and said, ‘Look, I’m not going back to work.’ I’d been fired like 15 times because I had a horrible attitude. I worked at Red Lobster before that and I chased a customer out of the restaurant once so I could stick my middle finger up at her and demand that she give me my pen back. I swear to God I was bad.”

On being a NY rapper:

“When I started rapping, people were trying to make me like the typical New York rapper, but I’m not that,” Minaj says. “No disrespect to New York rappers, but I don’t want people to hear me and know exactly where I’m from. I wanted the album to be universal and versatile. It really feels like it speaks for every one of my personalities.”

On getting respect in a male-dominated field:

“When I do songs like “Monster,” when I’m on a record with Jay-Z and Kanye West, when I’m on a record with Wayne and Em — I definitely think the dudes give me respect,” Minaj says. “They haven’t come easy but I think people are starting to give me more props.”

On “Your Love”:

Although first official single “Your Love” reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, the track wasn’t even meant to be released.

“I didn’t like the song and I didn’t put it out,” she says. “Someone stole it out of the studio and put it on the Internet and I cried because I was mortified. I was humiliated and remember telling Drake, ‘This is going to ruin my career.’ ”

On her work ethic:

“I push people around me but I don’t push anyone more than I push myself,” she says. “I tell people all the time, ‘You want to work for me? You have to give 250,000%,’ because when I’m in the booth, I don’t half-ass it. I demand perfection from everyone around me and if you can’t live up to that, then bye-bye.”

The Young Money rapper will be releasing her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ on November 22nd.

Music News: Soulja Boy Says Kanye West Inspires Him

Soulja Boy is crediting a recent session with Kanye West for expanding his mind as a musician.

Last month, Soulja Boy visited New York City for media rounds and to shoot a cover for XXL magazine.

During his time there, Soulja worked with both 50 Cent and Kanye West.

While his work with 50 was released as a video, “Mean Mug”, Soulja Boy’s music with Kanye West has yet to be heard.

He revealed that Kid Cudi joined them, and they completed several verses for an undisclosed amount of tracks.

Working with Kanye, and hearing an advanced copy of ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, helped Soulja Boy to different creative possibilities he can attempt with his own music.

“We got in the studio: me, Kanye and Kid Cudi. That was dope,” Soulja Boy told AllHipHop.com. “He played some dope beats and we worked around a couple of samples and got a couple verses in. I listened to the finished product that Kanye is on, and that really opened my mind. I don’t even want to say as a rapper, but as a musician. It really opens your mind to different sounds and drum kicks.”

With the music still in the vaults, and Kanye’s album tracklist confirmed, the next logical question is whether Kanye and Soulja’s work will be showcased in an upcoming G.O.O.D. Friday drop.

Kanye’s celebrated series runs until January, and has already featured artists ranging from Charlie Wilson and Keri Hilson, to Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj.

“We’ll have to see,” Soulja said with the laugh of someone caught red-handed. “There’s been some leaking going on. Kanye was kind of mad about that. Wait for those Fridays…”

Soulja Boy’s third solo album, ‘The DeAndre Way’, is set to be released on November 30.

Nicki Minaj is being featured in the latest issue of YRB magazine. Inside she addresses the haters and opens up about her life. The photos look DOPE!!

Check out some excerpts from her interview after the jump….

On “Monster” Being The Pivotal Moment In Her Career
That has to be the breakout Nicki Minaj moment. That was my moment “People paid attention because of who was on it and because I held my own and I stayed true to my crazy animation, and it’s like I didn’t have to take my fun stuff out. I was able to incorporate Nicki Minaj on a record with Jay-Z and Kanye West. And I think people know that’s a difficult task in itself.”

On Female Rappers Who Don’t Support Her
These girls aren’t mad at me. They’re mad at themselves,” she states, shooting down questions on why she never took Kim’s bait. “[It’s] jealousy, insecurity and being broke. When you haven’t capitalized and you see I’m about to capitalize on this sh*t like it’s never been done before, then you’re mad at yourself.

On being afraid to release her album
I was so afraid to put out an album for fear of failure. I wanted to put my album out on Valentine’s Day of 2011. And my label was like, are you f*cking crazy?”

On ‘Pink Friday’
I know that ‘Pink Friday’ is a classic album. I have never been this proud of anything in my life,” she says. “I just think that it’s such a dynamic body of work. I’m no longer afraid to drop it. Now, I know it’s time…..
