For Nicki Minaj, a Britney Spears tour was a chance to prove 'I can be part of any world'

femme fatale tour britney spears

Nicki Minaj was conquering the mainstream with the “boom ba-doom boom, boom ba-doom boom bass” of “Super Bass,” the highest-charting entry on the Billboard Hot 100 by a solo female rapper since Missy Elliott taught us what it means to "Work It , " when she took the stage in Glendale, Arizona, as the main support act on Britney Spears' huge arena tour.

It was the rising rap sensation’s second swing through metro Phoenix as an opener that year, having shared a bill with Lil Wayne on April 19, 2011, when Weezy’s I Am Music II Tour rolled through Footprint Center, which was called US Airways Center at the time.

Britney Spears on Nicki Minaj: 'A great artist in every way'

The Femme Fatale Tour launched on June 16, 2011, in Sacramento, California, hitting Glendale six days later for a concert at Desert Diamond Arena, which was Jobing.com Arena then.

In a midtour interview with MTV , Spears sang Minaj’s praises.

"I think she's great," Spears said.

"She's a great artist in every way and I'm really happy for her. I think she has a distinct sound when she raps. It really stands out and sets her apart from everyone else. I'm happy she's able to be on tour with me because that's just amazing."

Nicki Minaj was 'really excited to make history with Britney'

In an interview with MTV before the tour began , the Trinidadian rapper shared her feelings on touring with Spears.

“She's definitely iconic and I'm very excited," Minaj said. "It's weird. I just always remember her, since I was little, ruling the world, so I'm really excited to just expand my fanbase and show people that I can be a part of any world."

She also called into the Ryan Seacrest show to talk about how thrilled she was to have been asked to join the tour with a shout-out to her fans, the Barbs.

"I'm calling to let everyone know how thrilled I am, how honored I am to be going on the road with the iconic Miss Britney Spears this summer,” she said.

“I just know that when the Femme Fatales and the Barbs get together, we're going to kick major ass. And I am looking forward to creating a new, a bigger, a brighter, a more spectacular show. And I am just really, really excited to make history with Britney.”

In an interview with MTV before the tour launch, Minaj talked about “trying to put more theater on that stage,” adding, “So much to me is music, but it's also about putting on a show, so that's my goal: to truly put on a show and incorporate theater and dance.”

Critics praised Nicki Minaj's 'undeniably magnetic stage presence'

An Entertainment Weekly critic wrote that “Nicki herself brought as much fun and energy as she could to her budget-limited performance” in Los Angeles, the stop before the tour arrived in Glendale, “developing a Femme Fatale theme of her own as her alter-ego Roman battled a villainous dancer wearing the Saw clown mask.”

That writer also praised her “undeniably magnetic stage presence."

The Los Angeles Times responded to that same performance even more enthusiastically.

“Her music ranges from hardcore to pop friendly, so it’s not surprising that her second trek in a year shows her supporting pop royalty Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour,” Gerrick D. Kennedy wrote. After noting that Spears was the star of the show, he went on to write, “there was a moment at Staples when Minaj ruled the stage with razor-sharp bangs and body-hugging attire on full display.”

Kennedy went on to praise Minaj for having stepped it up a notch or two since coming through LA with LA Wayne a few months earlier.

“While she played the true team player role while on the road with Wayne (he likes to bring out his Young Money family  during  his set), with Spears, she proved to be a serious live player with elaborate staging, a theatrical story line, choreography and costume changes,” Kennedy wrote.

When Nicki Minaj came to Arizona on Britney Spear's Femme Fatale Tour

Two days later Minaj played Glendale, where my review in The Arizona Republic noted the “elaborate theatrical production” involved in her performance, which included “a talking computer, a parallel world and an epic battle being waged before our very eyes between good, as played by Nicki, and evil, which, of course, was out to ‘overshadow joy, peace and love.’”

“And if that sounds a little silly, well, it was, especially the final battle, where the rapper struck her favorite kung fu poses with a ray gun in each hand before vanquishing evil, naturally.”

For the most part, Minaj pulled it off, I wrote, “in part because she's one of rap's most charismatic entertainers, with a million dollar smile, a killer haircut and a level of enthusiasm that could not be more contagious while treating the fans to a hit-filled set that started with ‘Roman's Revenge’ and made its way through ‘Did It On'em,’ ‘Up All Night,’ ‘Bottoms Up’ and ‘BedRock.’”

Minaj joined Spears on stage at several stops on the Femme Fatale Tour to dust off her feature on “Till the World Ends,” but Glendale got Minaj on video, rapping her verse from the Femme Fatale Remix.

As The Republic noted, “‘Big Fat Bass’ began with giant speaker cabinets being wheeled out by her dancers, Britney crawling out of one to bump and grind in another skimpy outfit while will.i.am handled his part via video (the same trick used later for Nicki Minaj's rap on ‘Till the World Ends’ despite her being IN THE VENUE, having gone on just before the headliner).”

According to Pollstar, the Femme Fatale Tour was the 11th highest-grossing tour worldwide of 2011, earning $68.7 million.

Nicki Minaj brings her Pink Friday Tour to Phoenix in 2012

By the time Minaj made her next appearance in the Valley, she was headlining her own Pink Friday Tour, which played Comerica Theatre (now Arizona Financial Theatre) in Phoenix on Aug. 7, 2012.

Released in November 2010, “Pink Friday” was Minaj’s debut studio release. It hit the charts at No. 2, making its way to the top on the way to going triple-platinum.

Two songs from "Pink Friday" – “Your Love” and “Moment 4 Life” (which featured Drake) – hit No. 1 on Billboard’s rap charts.

Six songs went Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 – “Your Love,” “Check It Out” (with will.i.am), “Right Thru Me,” “Moment 4 Life,” “Super Bass” and “Fly” (with Rihanna).

The album’s biggest hit, by far, was “Super Bass,” which peaked at No. 3 and was certified Diamond for sales of 10 million units, winning an MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video.

The success of “Pink Friday” inspired two sequels – 2012’s double-platinum “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” and 2023’s “Pink Friday 2,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100.

What Nicki Minaj learned from Lil Wayne and Britney Spears

In 2011, before she launched her Pink Friday Tour, Minaj spoke to the Los Angeles Times and reflected on what opening for Lil Wayne and Britney Spears had taught her about how to entertain a crowd.

“Britney’s production is so amazing,” she said. “When I sat out there the first night to watch it, I felt like I was a kid at an amusement park. It was so much, the lights, the content and the props.

"Whereas Wayne, he teaches me how to command a crowd. His comfort level and how he makes people feel like he’s their best friend when he’s onstage. He has that command. If you can put both of those two things into a show, you can really do an amazing show – that’s my goal.

"Am I gonna be able to do these humongous venues within the next year? Probably not. But am I gonna put on an amazing show and give everyone something that’s gonna be well worth what they paid? Absolutely yes.”

Minaj brings her Pink Friday 2 World Tour to Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday, March 13. It's her fourth and most extensive headlining tour, playing 56 dates.

In an Instagram livestream, she promised, “This will be a very different feeling tour, even if you've been to every Nicki Minaj tour that's ever existed.”

Femme Fatale Tour

  • View history

The tour, divided in five segments, portrays a story in which Spears is a secret agent, who is chased by a stalker. The first section features her escaping from prison along with other female inmates. The second segment displays upbeat dance numbers and ends with a performance inspired by Marilyn Monroe . The third section features an Egyptian theme with fireworks and acrobatics. The fourth segment displays energetic routines and motorcycle costumes. The encore begins with a video interlude of Spears capturing the stalker, and is followed by two performances in which she defeats a group of ninjas . The Femme Fatale Tour received mixed reviews from critics. Some described it as her most entertaining show yet and praised Spears's performance, while others criticized her dancing and lack of interaction.

After tour promoter Live Nation partnered with websites such as Groupon , thousands of tickets were sold at discounted prices. The Femme Fatale Tour grossed $6.2 million in the first ten shows, and was included on Pollstar's Top 100 North American Tours list. An unofficial high-quality recording of the Las Vegas show was uploaded to YouTube in July 2011; it was removed after the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) filed legal action against the site. 3ality Digital filmed the Toronto shows in August 2011 in 2D and 3D, for a special titled Britney Spears: Femme Fatale . It aired on Epix and was released on DVD and Blu-ray in November. BBC Worldwide has acquired the rights to both 2D and 3D versions outside the United States.

Britney spears’ femme fatale tour: what critics say.

The singer, who performed in Los Angeles Monday, is called "entertaining" and "a mess pretty much from start to finish."

Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour: What Critics Say

Britney Spears kicked off her Femme Fatale tour this week. She played her 90-minute set in Los Angeles’ Staples Center Monday night. Here’s what the critics are saying about the pop singer’s latest world tour.

PHOTOS: Britney Spears and other stars at the Billboard Music Awards

“Even with bells, whistles, fireworks and scores of dancers, a pop star’s evolution is not always a pretty picture,” writes The Hollywood Reporter ‘s Shirley Halperin, who notes the Britney Spears of 2011 is “one who’s seated for nearly half of her 90-minute set, who doesn’t quite have that spring in her dance step anymore and who requires a constant barrage of visual distractions while she mostly lip-synchs along to her hits.”

Jack black releases full-length cover of "baby one more time" by britney spears, how jack black ended up covering britney spears' "baby one more time" in 'kung fu panda 4'.

Still, Spears’ show is “entertaining,” Haperin makes sure to note. “With theatrics that bring to life a sexy assassin subplot, elaborate stage sets (cages, a pink motorcycle, a giant dragon boat) and a slew of dancers who effortlessly camouflage Spears’ less energetic numbers (and Spears had her share on Monday at L.A.’s Staples Center, though not quite on the level of her GMA performance from March), Femme Fatale features bells and whistles out the yin-yang in a sort of sugary rush that’s not unlike going to Disneyland — which is, of course, highly appropriate considering Spears got her first taste of fame on the Mickey Mouse Club.”

The San Jose Mercury News ‘ Jim Harrington called Spears’ Saturday night show there a “shockingly poor outing from one of pop music’s biggest stars.”

“The current Femme Fatale Tour, in support of the chart-topping record of the same name, is a mess pretty much from start to finish. The theatrics are awkward and confusing, the dance routines are numbingly bland and old-hat, the song selection is weak and misguided, and Britney’s star power, so blinding on tours past, is remarkably dim,” he writes.

“What makes this turn of events so depressing is that Femme Fatale directly follows 2009’s The Circus Starring Britney Spears, a comeback tour that — while not without minor problems — served notice that the long-troubled star was still capable of being a first-rate entertainer,” he continues.

Rolling Stone magazine, however, said of Spears’ show in Sacremento last Thursday, “The night belonged to Britney: She managed to prove that she’s still progressing as a showgirl… Not only that, she’s doing it better than even die hard defenders would’ve predicted. At 29, the pop star whose career seemed in danger of ending just a couple years ago has shown that she’s back – hopefully this time to stay.”

MTV News ‘ Kelley L. Carter says that Spears “stuck to script” at her Staples Center show.

“The Spears that captivated the audience at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles on Monday night was the old, fun-loving, free-wheeling Spears — with a sexy, showgirl twist. There wasn’t much pretense, though those glamazon outfits blinded in the best way possible. Instead, there was just good dance music,” she wrote.

“There were times throughout the night when it was obvious that Spears was lip-synching, but no one in the audience seemed to mind one bit. They were there to be served a shot of Spears straight-up. And they got what they came for,” she wrote.
