Not content to be confined by Earth's gravitational pull, Lady Gaga is planning to sing in space, Us Weekly reports. The gig will go down in 2015 in conjunction with the Zero-G Music Tech Festival at New Mexico's Spaceport America. She'll board a Virgin Galactic spaceship for a performance that is reportedly planned for dawn on the festival's third day. In preparation, Gaga will have to do a month of rehearsals because of the change in atmosphere. No word on the price tag to catch Gaga's space set, but expect it to cost a pretty penny.
Gaga isn't the only singer with her eye on the sky. English classical-crossover artist Sarah Brightman is also preparing for a space voyage in 2015, her rep said. Brightman is training with Russian cosmonauts for a 10-day journey to the International Space Station, where she she hopes to record a song.
News of Lady Gaga's cosmic aspirations comes as the singer is about to release her fourth album ARTPOP, which is now streaming on iTunes Radio. It was reported earlier this week that she recently split with her longtime manager, Troy Carter, who had a heavy hand in breaking her. She's set to take over Saturday Night Live on November 16th as both host and performer. So far, her space show is the only live show on the books.
