Britney Spears has officially confirmed Nicki Minaj will be her new partner on her upcoming all-female tour.
The Toxic superstar has been on the hunt for another big name to share the bill with her when she hits the road this summer (11) after Spanish hunk Enrique Iglesias pulled out of the deal moments after Spears made the big announcement on U.S. TV last month (Mar11).
Much speculation surrounded the star's new replacement, but Spears took to her personal website on Tuesday (12Apr11) to confirm the news and announce the rest of her tour dates.
She writes, "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. Can't wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road."
Spears will kick off her two-month North American tour in Sacramento, California on 16 June, making stops in a variety of cities including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, Florida, and Boston, Massachusetts, before culminating in Toronto, Canada on 13 August (11).
