Nicki Minaj Talks Differences Between Britney Spears, Lil Wayne Tours

Nicki Minaj, who just joined Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale tour, recently had her first interview since the tour kicked off last week.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the Young Money star talked about her initial feelings going into the tour saying, “Well, initially, what I thought was I hope this audience will appreciate what I do” Nicki told the Los Angeles Times.

“What I first dealt with was a bit of the unknown. Is this something that Britney’s crowd will even enjoy? But it all went away the first night.

I stood in the transporter, that big prop that we have on the stage, and I could not believe the crowd reaction before they even saw me. It was very emotional for me.”

Minaj also spoke about the differences in Britney Spears tour, and the I Am Still Music tour, which recently wrapped up with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, and talked about the response she’s received on tour with Spears.

“I was so shocked. I thought, OK, on the Wayne tour, this is my audience, everyone that knows Wayne, they know Nicki Minaj,” she said.

“When I heard those screams, it was one of the best feelings in the world. It changed overnight.

I’m pleasantly surprised with the people coming out on this show; they generally are coming out not to critique, but to have fun. The hip-hop community tends to be more critical. On this stage, I felt a little bit more free.”

Tickets for Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears’ ‘Femme Fatale’ tour are on sale now. The tour ends August 13th in Toronto, Canada.
