Nicki Minaj Sets Sights on 2012 Headlining ‘Pink Friday’ Tour
This summer, Nicki Minaj will head out on the road with Britney Spears to perform dates on the pop singer’s Femme Fatale tour, but the Young Money rapper already has her sights set on her own headlining tour for 2012.
“Next year, I’ll be headlining my own tour,” Minaj told Us Magazine. “So this is my time to be a student and to learn and to absorb all of this information and then take that knowledge and create an amazing ‘Pink Friday’ tour at the top of 2012.”
The two have already had some stage time together, with Britney Spears joining Nicki for a remixed performance of ‘Super Bass/Till the End of Time’ at the recent Billboard Music Awards. “I’m honored to be out with Britney. She’s freakin’ paved the way for pop culture,” Nicki continued. “We are in talks to hit the stage together but that is up to her. I would love to, of course. If we do something on tour, it will probably be the [‘Till the World Ends’] remix. I’m sure there are so many things I’m going to learn just by watching her.”
Minaj recently wrapped up her opening dates on Lil Wayne’s I Am Still Music tour, along with Rick Ross and Travis Barker. The 26-date Femme Fatale tour will kick off on June 17 at Sacramento’s Power Balance Pavilion.
