Britney Spears & Nicki Minaj

The MGM Grand Garden Arena, on June 25, was the sixth stop on Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj’s Femme Fatale North American tour, but the two pop princesses still brought opening-night-level energy.

Minaj hit the stage first with the vibrancy and style that her fans know and love, complete with her short-bobbed wig in multi-neon colors, platform high heels and attitude. The crowd went wild for her popular “Moment for Life,” but it was the new single “Super Bass” that left the crowd screaming at the end of the performance.

As the lights went dark, screams engulfed the arena—filled predominantly by women—in anticipation of Spears’ turn. Spears entered through the bottom of the stage wearing a scandalous and sparkly one-piece silver number that immediately set the mood. On a much grander stage than the one on which Minaj had just performed, the temptress of pop had fans on their feet dancing and singing along to No. 1 hits such as “Hold It Against Me” and the sexy old-school fan favorite “Slave for You.” It was the lights, stage props such as a bright pink Mini Cooper complete with stripper pole, pyrotechnics and Spears’ fierceness on stage that made the concert so enticing.

A pogoing Minaj reappeared (along with fans) onstage as Spears hung from a harness swing wearing angel wings while singing her newest single, “Till the World Ends.” And at the tune’s conclusion, confetti littered the crowd and the party was over.

Overall, this performance showed improvement from the pop diva’s Circus comeback tour in 2009. She showed that she can still compete against the new generation of pop stars such as Lady Gaga. It looks like Britney is back again, bitch.

As test pilot Hal Jordan, who gets a magic ring, Ryan Reynolds displays enough charisma to carry a major action franchise. But the film itself is disappointingly routine. It’s a relationship picture, in which the man learns to be a better man en route to saving the planet from the fire-breathing, soul-sucking Parallax. Blake Lively provides a welcome distraction as Hal’s ex. With the help of his ring, Hal can turn anything he can think of into reality. I just wish he’d thought up a better movie.
