Rapper Nicki Minaj has confirmed she is in negotiations to replace Enrique Iglesias and join Britney Spears on her summer (11) tour.
The pop superstar is on the hunt for another big name to share the bill when she hits the road in June (11) after Iglesias pulled out of a co-headlining U.S. trek last week (ends03Apr11).
Spears has already publicly appealed to have Usher perform onstage with her, while she has also voiced her admiration for Minaj.
The hip-hop star admits she would jump at the opportunity to travel with Spears and she is doing everything she can to make it happen.
Minaj tells WENN, "We're talking. I would love to, but I don't know yet. I can neither confirm or deny the rumours!" (MT/WN)
