Lady Gaga, 27, is set to become the first artist ever to sing in outer space when she performs at the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in early 2015, Us Weekly reports.
Gaga is set to blast off in a Virgin Galactic ship at Spaceport America in New Mexico to perform a single track during the festival, which is a three-day event. Her performance in space is reportedly planned to take place on the third day at dawn, approximately six months after the first Virgin Galactic commercial flight.
"She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere," a source tells the magazine. "[It will be] like nothing the world has seen before."
And of course, she's already taken some precautions!
"Gaga has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!," a source says.
Other celebrities who have signed up for flights on Virgin Galactic, which start at $250,000 and up to travel on Virgin founder Richard Branson's rocket-powered SpaceShipTwo, include Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio.
