Nicki Minaj Officially Joining Britney Spears On Tour

After all the rumors and the hinting around, it’s finally official: femme fatale Britney Spears and wig matron Nicki Minaj will be hitting the road together this summer. Spears’ official site touted the news today while noting that the all female line-up also includes Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo on all tour stops.

“This is the Femme Fatale tour and I’m thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor,” said apocalyptic “Till The World Ends” singer Spears. “Can’t wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road.” Maybe Brit-Brit will find some punctuation marks while she’s jaunting around the country?

“The #FemmeFataleBARBZ wont know what hit em. Ready or not people, here we come,” Britney tweeted this morning at Nicki. In response, the “Moment 4 Life” MC wrote, “yup! and let’s keep the “other thing” a secret for now… ;)”

Other thing? Do we sense a collaboration in the works? Something in a similar vein to this, perhaps?

Spears’ site says tickets for select markets go on sale at Ticketmaster and on April 30. Below is the new, slightly modified list of tour dates (the Sacramento date appears to have been switched from the 17th to the 16th of June):
