Man, the list of who we’re sending into space just keeps getting weirder and weirder, doesn’t it? But at least the latest addition to the list makes a certain amount of sense. I have long believed that Lady Gaga is actually an alien from the planet Xw3rewbfuilaw; as such, I am not at all surprised to find that she will be blasting off into space, presumably to return to her home planet armed with her hard-won knowledge about the absurdities of the humans of Earth, in 2015.
According to Us Weekly, Gaga will be one of the many celebrities heading up into the ether in on one of Virgin Galactic’s first commercial space launches. Even MORE hilariously, she’ll be belting out a tune while she’s up there.
That’s right: The “Dope” singer will be participating in the Zero G Coony high-tech music festival. And singing in space is no joke; said a source, “She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere.” I was under the impression that in space, no one can hear you scream, let alone sing, but presumably Gaga will be performing inside a space shuttle, rather than floating around outside of it.
Other stars whom we are for some reason sending up into orbit include Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber. I’d like to apologize in advance on behalf of the Earth to any extra-terrestrial life in the universe who may meet their tragic ends due to the exposure of “Baby.”
