[artist id="3815363"]DJ Pauly D[/artist] joined the Femme Fatale Tour on Monday night and got the crowd fist-pumping as one of the opening acts for [artist id="501686"]Britney Spears[/artist]‘ show. It was announced last month that the “Jersey Shore” star would be taking a break from Seaside Heights to hit the road with Brit for the remainder of her tour, and he kicked things off this week in Boston.
“It’s so cool because I’m an actual act,” Pauly D told MTV News a few days before Monday’s tour date. “So, it’s like DJ Pauly D goes on — I’m an act — then Nicki Minaj, then Britney Spears.”
So how did Pauly D do in his big debut? Well, his tourmate Nicki Minaj took to Twitter after the concert and gave her rave review: “BOSTON why are u so EPIC right now?!??!!?! Like seriously???!??” Minaj tweeted. “(Pauly D KILlED it by the way!!!!)”
This is Pauly D’s first time joining a major tour but he didn’t think life on the road would be difficult to get used to. “I got my own tour bus now, it’s all done,” Pauly D said smiling. “My DJ booth is all done, it looks amazing, and I’m really excited. It’s like a dream come true.”
But if you’re going to check out the concert, don’t expect Pauly D to play any of Spears’ classic songs. “A DJ should not play the artist’s songs at her concert, ’cause she has to perform these songs,” he told us earlier this year when he warmed up the crowd for Brit’s Las Vegas show. “I’m not going to be playing any Britney before she performs; maybe after. I’ll let her perform, let her shine, ’cause it’s her night.”
Although he won’t open the show by playing her hits, the MTV star didn’t rule out the possibility of joining Spears (who’s a “Jersey Shore” fan!) onstage.
“Maybe, we’ll see,” Pauly said. “It would be really cool, though.”
