Global pop star Lady Gaga will soon be performing among the stars, blasting off into outer space in 2015 on a Virgin Galactic ship.
Her unearthly jam session will reportedly coincide with the Zero G Colony tech festival in New Mexico, and she will become the first celebrity musician to sing in space.
The out-of-this-world stunt will require some prep work. “She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere,” a source told Us Weekly.
Gaga may become the first chart-topper to give a concert in orbit, but it won’t be the first tune performed in space. Last year, astronaut Chis Hadfield recorded a song aboard the International Space Station. He also made the first intergalactic music video, when he covered David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” in a zero-gravity video (watch, below).[youtube width=”602″ height=”350″ video_id=”KaOC9danxNo”]
Maybe Gaga’s space performance can become a full-blown all-star concert. After all, Justin Beiber already has travel tickets on Virgin Galactic.
