The 'Right By My Side' star's brand new world tour has been described as a "real rap show".

Nicki Minaj's creative director has promised fans the rapper's current 'Pink Friday' world tour is both "intimate" but "big at the same time".

Laurieann Gibson, who has worked with stars including Lady Gaga and Diddy, served as choreographer for the 'Super Bass' rapper's new tour, and says the worldwide jaunt is "super special' because it bought her back to rap.

"I just put Nicki Minaj on the road, actually, and her tour is super special to me and doing really well," she revealed to MTV News this week. "Nicki Minaj was so much fun for me, and it was like a breath of fresh air.

"I was so happy to be in that soulful music again, in that fight, in the idea that rap is not dead and that somebody like her can be many things in many genres and not be limited."

She added: "So the 'Pink Friday' tour is really good and it's kind of like a glimpse back to what a real rap show is. It's intimate but big at the same time."

The 'Starships' rapper kicked off her 'Pink Friday' tour in Sydney, Australia earlier this week and will continue to perform across the world before returning to the United States in July.

Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday' tour continues tomorrow (25th May) in Yokohama, Japan, before heading to Europe on 8th June for a show in Stockholm, Sweden.
