(ABC News) – Lady Gaga is taking her talents to space. Vanity Fair Daily caught up with the “Dope” vocalist at her ArtPop record-release party Sunday and, in an exclusive interview, Gaga confirmed that she will be the first artist to perform in space.
“I was asked specifically to sing, so I’m going to be the first recording artist to sing in space, and I did not purchase my flight,” she revealed. “My ticket was given to me. This is a special festival event held by Zero G Colony, and I will be flying to space two months after the first commercial flights take off.”
Last week, reports surfaced that the 27-year-old singer would sing a single track in outer spaced during the Zero G Colony musical festival in early 2015. Regarding reports of intense vocal training and alleged wardrobe restrictions for the event, Gaga was less forthcoming.
