She says she cannot think of a "sexier" singer to tour with.

Nicki Minaj says she is "beyond thrilled" Britney Spears has invited her to join her tour.

"It's an honor. She's an icon," she tells MTV News. "This summer will be one for the books!"
Spears is also smitten with the idea, Tweeting: "Could not think of a sexier Femme Fatale than @NickiMinaj to come on tour with me! Gonna be a hot summer people! The #FemmeFataleBARBZ wont know what hit em. Ready or not people, here we come...."
"Hot INDEED Your Fierceness!!! This tour's gonna KICK ASS!!! The #FemmeFataleBARBZ r READY!!! Let's GO!!!" Minaj tweeted back to the star, before adding, "Let's keep the 'other thing' a secret for now..."
Minaj - who is replacing Enrique Iglesias - will join Spears after she wraps up Lil Wayne's I Am Still Music Tour, which ends May 1 in New Jersey. 
Spears' 26-date tour kicks off June 16 in Sacramento, Calif, and ends Aug. 13 in Toronto. (Tickets go on sale Apr. 30.)
"This is the Femme Fatale tour, and I'm thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and [opening acts] Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor," Spears said Tuesday about the tour. "Can't wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road."
