Justin Bieber is quickly burning through whatever goodwill he and his stupid hair built up during the early days of his fame, so it only makes sense that he might want to get away from it all for a while. Well, according to NBC News, Justin may be leaving for space soon with his manager Scooter Braun. Hopefully, it’s a one-way trip kinda deal like that one episode of The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror where they fire all the annoying celebrities into the sun …
Virgin’s billionaire founder, Richard Branson, reported in a Twitter tweet that the teenage pop star and his agent, Scooter Braun, have signed up to suborbital spaceflights: “Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts,” Branson wrote. “Congrats, see you up there!” Bieber registered no response on his own Twitter account, but he retweeted Branson’s congratulations. In February, he told his 40 million Twitter followers, “I wanna do a concert in space.” To which NASA replied, “Maybe we can help you with that.”

Justin: Hell, alien bretheren. I come from Earth, bearing swag and such. Want a copy of my album?
Alien: So there are more like you on your planet?
Justin: About seven billion, yeah.
Alien: Goodbye harbinger. (*Fires spacebeams at Justin and the planet*) The galaxy has been saved. PRAISE XENU!
