Miami summer just got hotter. Nicki Minaj is coming to town.

The always interesting Grammy nominee (remember when a snake bit one of her dancers during last year’s VMAs?) announced the North American dates for her PinkPrint Tour — and we made the list.

Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets for the July 20 concert at Bayfront Park Amphitheare beginning noon Wednesday, at General tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday through


In other concert news, tickets are on sale for Kelly Clarkson’s Sept. 17 show at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. If you’ve seen the Stronger singer perform live, this tour may be a little different. She just isn’t the same person she was since winning the first season of American Idol in 2002.

Now 32, Clarkson is a mom to 8-month-old daughter River, and has found stability with her husband, Brandon Blackstock. “I’ve never been this happy or felt this loved in my life,” the new mom recently told The Los Angeles Times. “I’m in a really, really great place.”

The Nashville resident will touch on classic power ballads like Since U Been Gone and new stuff from Piece by Piece, her just released seventh studio disc. It’s a mix of pop and dance rock.

Clarkson also told the paper that how fans see her now has evolved: “Before this I was the man-hater,” said the Invincible croomer. “I’ve never been a man-hater! But people like a headline. And with me and my career, there’s never really been a ton of drama – I haven’t gone to rehab, and I haven’t gotten in fights in public – so I think people have a hard time figuring out where to put me.”


Jordana Brewster surprised attendees of a screening for the latest Fast and Furious film at AMC Sunset Place Monday night. Furious 7, which opens April 3, completed production after the November 2013 death of Paul Walker, with the help of the late actor’s two brothers Cody and Caleb who stepped in to complete the work. “I hope you love it as much as I do,” said Brewster, who was up bright and early Tuesday for Despierta America, dancing salsa with cohost William Valdes, she Tweeted.
