Lady Gaga always strives to better herself and stand out from the crowd, but she’s normally met with comments such as “MADONNA DID THAT!!!” However, this time there’s no room to be reductive as Lady Gaga is set to be the first person to perform in space… ever! Pretty exciting, right?
US Weekly exclusively revealed the news earlier today, stating that Lady Gaga will be the first ever person to perform live in space. The closest we’ve come is Will.i.am’s bloody vocals being blasted on Mars by the Curiosity Rover.
The ‘Venus’ singer, aged 27, will blast off to space in 2015 in a Virgin Galactic ship and belt out one of her singles. We’ve seen some Gaga performances in the past but this has to be the icing on the cake, right?
The atmosphere is vastly different in space and therefore, Gaga will have to undergo some vocal training to make sure her voice can handle the atmosphere up there.
“She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere,” a source told the publication.
It won’t only be Gaga going up in the ship either as she glam team will go up with her as well… she has to look her best, right? I can’t wait to see what sort of outfit she will wear, it won’t be a basic space suit. It’ll have to glammed up.
The performance will be a part of the Zero G Colony event, a three-day hi-tech festival which will take place at Spaceport America in New Mexico. Gaga will perform on a the third day at dawn and will blow the rest of the performers out of the water.
The first Virgin Galactic flight will take place approximately six months before the event.
The event will be “like nothing the world has seen before,” according to the source.
Of course, Gaga has to be brave or ruddy stupid to go up in space to perform, so she has taken out “a ridiculous life insurance policy”.
Earlier this evening, Gaga retweeted the exclusive news by US Weekly (basically confirming it WILL happen) before writing:

“Find out if the rumors are true 11.10 LIVE from ARTPOP’s album launch. Will #VirginGalactic+#ZeroGColony send Gaga to sing LIVE from space?”
Only time will tell, but we reckon it’s going to happen… As Gaga sings “Rocket number 9 take off to the planet…”
