Not one to be outdone by Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga is the latest pop star to announce plans to venture to infinity and beyond.
The singer is aiming to blast off in early 2015, making her the first artist to perform in outer space, according to Us Weekly. Gaga's performance will arrive on the third day of Zero G Colony, a music festival that fittingly claims to be "out of this world."
Gaga will perform one song at the crack of dawn (she'll reportedly undergo a month's worth of vocal training in order to ready herself for the atmosphere). Gaga intends to travel in a Virgin Galactic ship, and the 27-year-old will also reportedly take out a massive life-insurance policy (just in case things go all "Gravity").
Mother Monster is hardly the first celebrity with plans to venture to the cosmos. Bieber will board a Virgin Galactic vessel alongside Sir Richard Branson, who has a specific hope for the young singer.
Other famous faces who signed up for the Virgin Galactic missions, which require a $250,000 fee, include Ashton Kutcher, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Katy Perry. Leonardo DiCaprio will take one lucky person with him on his space expedition; Vasily Klyuki, a Russian real estate mogul, bid $1.5 million to accompany the actor.
Gaga confirmed the report on Twitter.
