British Barbies get on your party hats, because this will be a summer to remember. American popstar Nicki Minaj has been added to the Hackney Weekend line-up, joining superstar Jay Z next Saturday.

A BBC insider said:

Nicki is one of the biggest stars on the planet right now. It’s great that she has chosen Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend as her first UK gig of the year. I am sure she’ll have a few surprises up her sleeve for her fans.

Well if one of those surprises is Nicki dressed up as the Queen performing a speech in her almost perfect British accent, then we need front row seats!
