Lady Gaga to sing from space during 2015 music festival

Lady Gaga to sing from outer space aboard the Virgin Galactic shuttle

So who’s ready for an interGagalactic performance?!? Lady Gaga is reportedly going to be the first musician to perform in outer space in 2015 as part of the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in New Mexico. Lady Gaga (and her glam squad) will be aboard Richard Branson’s Virgin Gagalactic shuttle for the performance, which is scheduled for the third day of the festival.

“She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere,” a source reveals to Us Weekly. And just in case Houston has a problem, another source tells the tabloid that the 27-year-old singer “has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!”

Lady Gaga seemed to confirm the story by retweeting Us Weekly’s link and then adding:

She then seems to suggest an official announcement (with much fanfare to be certain!) will come during the official ARTPOP album release event on November 10:

Though the Lady GagApollo ’15 launch is still more than a year off, she’s already started jettisoning things — namely her manager Troy Carter! (How’s that for an awkward segue?) The two have reportedly split due to “creative differences.”

I don’t mean to burst Lady Gaga’s bubble, but Justin Bieber has reportedly already purchased a seat aboard Virgin Galactic with the ship’s inaugural voyage scheduled for approximately six months prior to Lady Gaga’s performance. Prior to the announcement he would be heading into the great beyond with manager Scooter Braun, Justin had tweeted, “I wanna do a concert in space.” And after the announcement was officially made, Justing tweeted, “let’s shoot a music video in SPACE!! #nextLEVEL” In other words, I am guessing the Biebs will be doing some kind of performance from space during his trip, which would bump Lady Gaga from the “first ever” title.

And let’s not forget that space singing is nothing new! For example, there’s Canadian astronaut (and viral video sensation) Chris Hadfield who recorded his version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” a day before his scheduled return to Earth after five months aboard the International Space Station:
