Since Enrique Iglesias hit ESC key on Britney Spears because he was rumored to have a gigantic ego/wanted more cash, Brit’s camp has been in negotiations to replace her opening act. Technically they will be “co-headlining,” but Nicki Minaj is officially touring with Spears on her Femme Fatale tour.
Most TMZ suggests that fans seem to think Minaj is a far better choice than Enrique and are happy to hear of the replacement. Nicki is currently on tour with Lil Wayne until the end of April, but will be ready for the launch of Spears’ tour on June 17th. (Click HERE for more tour dates and city stops…)
They could have replaced him with a can of soup and this will still be a sold out tour. Brit stans will pay top dollar to watch her sit on a box and flap her jaws to a pre-recorded song about a bass swelling. Alas, I could be wrong. While the reviews are decent, projections for the album are low. Pair that with body doubles doing most of the dancing for Britney’s videos and you get my what’s the point? shrug.
