Lady Gaga

If there’s one thing I learned from Gravity, it’s that space is a terrifying, infinite void of nothing that no one was ever meant to venture into. Except now Lady Gaga is going to reportedly be the first musician to perform in space, and suddenly I’m really pretty okay with all of the above. Via Today

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. “She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere,” says a source, who adds that the diva’s glam squad will join her in 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. 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.

The first artist? Really? Because I’m pretty sure Commander Chris Hadfield beat you to the punch with his own version of David Bowie‘s “Space Oddity”. RESPECT HIS AUTHORITAH.
