Talk about catching a ride to the gig. A pop superstar has scheduled a performance that’s literally out of this world — singing in outer space. Us Magazine reports that Lady Gaga has seized the opportunity to become the first artist to pull off the feat.
The gig is scheduled for early 2015.
"The ‘Dope’ performer, 27, is set to blast off in a Virgin Galactic ship and belt out a single track during the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in New Mexico," the article reports.
The piece quotes a source saying: "She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere." The source adds that Gaga’s "glam squad" is expected to accompany the singer on the shuttle.
"Zero G Colony is a three-day hi-tech festival set to take place at Spaceport America in New Mexico that features world-class entertainment and cutting-edge technology," the story reports. "Gaga’s performance in space is planned to take place on the third day at dawn, which is approximately six months after the first Virgin Galactic commercial flight."
Another source is quoted saying: "Gaga has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!"
