With Britney Spears and her powerhouse remix of “Till The World Ends” featuring Ke$ha and Young Money starlet and future tour mate Nicki Minaj building quite a buzz by dropping today, Brit thrilled fans during Nicki’s after concert party at The Factory nightclub in West Hollywood over the weekend with a surprise appearance alongside the Pink Friday star.
E! Online broke the news Saturday (April 23) afternoon, a day after Lil Wayne’s “I Am Still Music” tour made a stop in Los Angeles to rock out for a packed Staples Center crowd Friday night (April 22). The Nicki Minaj hosted event late Friday erupted into mayhem when Britney Spears joined her upcoming tour partner onstage a source told E! Online. “[It] was complete pandemonium,” said the source. "They literally fainted when Britney walked onto the stage where Nicki was hanging. People were crowd surfing to get to the stage. Screams were so loud for Nicki and Brit you couldn't hear the music. Bouncers couldn't hold the crowd back.”
The Femme Fatale star only stayed for a half hour, with reports stating six fans hyperventilating from excitement were removed by the club’s security team. Fans around the blogosphere offered some praise and a good amount of nasty comments about the pop princess nearly upstaging the wildly popular Minaj.
“[Y]ou bums need to stop hating on Nicki Minaj. [S]he just came into this s--t and already shes breaking billboard records and that was before her album even dropped so imagine what shes getting ready to do now! All these b*tches is her sons!” said one commenter on E! in Nicki’s defense. A fan giving a nod to Team Brit said, “[W]ow tht just goes to show that britt has still got it, i mean if u thought nikki was big obviously forgot britney spears will make you pass out! Lol”
Gossip site Necole Bitchie posted the story with fans of the blog chiming in with a variety of put-downs and quips. “They all look good (even britney) but Nicki need to let that “colgate toothpaste” wig go away,” said one fan. Another added, “Seems Like Nicki Minaj Always Needs Help Walking In Her Heels….. Word Of Advice If You Dont Know How To Walk In Heels Dont Wear Them.” Another fan observed, “When you can get Britney spears to come out to your event, it’s more than safe to say you’re WINNING.”
