Enrique And Brit's Tour Drama!
She’s one of the biggest names in pop music, he’s a Spanish superstar - so together, it should be a match made in musical heaven…
Brit Brit told interviewer Robin Roberts on Tuesday: "I'm going on tour with Enrique Iglesias in June," and that they were "going to have fun". A full list of the 26 date tour, which will start in June, was also posted on Brit’s website.
But according to Digital Spy, shortly after the announcement, Iglesias' representative Gary Mantoosh said via statement: "Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together. Instead, Enrique will be continuing his solo tour in support of his album Euphoria.”
"Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone."
Although there was no official reason given for the cancellation, whispers are swirling it’s because Enrique refuses to merely be Britney's ‘opening act’. Digital Spy reports that Enrique had planned a full production, rather than a standard opening number. Either way, it’s sure to be a blow to excited fans who were looking forward to getting two superstars for the price of one!
Britney’s seventh studio album ‘Femme Fatale’ was released worldwide today - fingers are still crossed her tour brings her down under!
