Lady Gaga is to boldly go where no pop star has gone before.
Taking her reputation from the sublime to the astronomic, she will become the first pop artist to blast out of earth and perform live in space.
The 27-year-old has confirmed she will be part of the three day hi-tech music festival Zero G Colony, set to take place in New Mexico’s Spaceport America in early 2015.
Gaga will rocket into the universe aboard a Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two and sing a track once zero gravity is reached.
Far from a simple skill, the larger-than-life US pop star will undergo a month of vocal training to prepare for the atmosphere and weightlessness in space.
She will have to train prior to the event to make sure that her vocal cords can handle all the changes in atmospheric pressure.
Just in case the force isn’t with the pop star, a source tells Us Magazine:
“Gaga has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!”
