Young Money's Nicki Minaj is heading in the same direction as the New York Giants and New England Patriots after recently confirming Super Bowl halftime performance speculation.
Responding to a Twitter follower's question, Minaj revealed she was practicing her Super Bowl halftime performance presumably with pop icon Madonna.
"Super Bowl rehearsals w/the Queen ;) ----> RT @HumbleNika: @NICKIMINAJ what does your agenda contain today Nic? :)," she tweeted January 27th. (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
Speculation recently developed suggesting Nicki and Madonna would grace next weekend's Super Bowl stage in Indianapolis.
Madonna is only a few weeks away from her 12 minutes on stage as the featured performer for the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. Madonna is expected to perform her new single, "Gimme All Yer Luvin'," which drops any day now; her new album, "M.D.N.A." is due this spring. The single features Nicki Minaj, and she is rumored to be joining Madonna for the Super Bowl event. (Anti Music)
The duo will also reportedly share stage time with singer M.I.A.
"The Material Girl is back on the dance floor!" Madonna's website announced on Sunday. Give Me All Your Luvin', MDNA's lead single, will debut on Americal Idol on Thursday night, and will go on sale the following day. Produced by French DJ Martin Solveig, this is the finished version of the demo that leaked in November, featuring MIA and Nicki Minaj. Madonna will also appear this evening on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. These appearances anticipate her Super Bowl XLVI performance this Sunday. More than 100 million people are expected to watch the American football game and the Material Girl's half-time set. MIA and Minaj will reportedly join her, while the video for Give Me All Your Luvin' is "football- and cheerleader-themed", according to a press release. (The Guardian)
On Nicki's new "Stupid H*e" record, she hints at the Super Bowl performance.
"If you cute, then your crew can roll," she raps, "If you sexy, eat my cucka roll/Put ya cape on, you a super ho/Twenty twelve, I'm at the Super Bowl." ("Stupid H*e")
