In November of 2013, Lady Gaga shared in an exclusive interview with U.S. Weekly that she will be aboard the Virgin Galactic ship that is set to take off into outer space in early 2015. Her seat on the flight is part of Zero G Colony’s plans to have the first recording artist perform beyond the earth’s atmosphere as part of its three-day hi-tech festival.
While others on board the Virgin Galactic are paying a quarter of a million dollars to visit space, Lady Gaga received a complimentary ticket, according to Vanity Fair. She is expected to perform on the final day of the festival. To prepare, the recording artist will undergo one month of vocal training to acclimate to the atmospheric change. There are also reports that Lady Gaga has secured an enormous life insurance policy.
