There is literally nothing Justin Bieber can’t do. Dance battle with Usher? Check. Balling with Shaquille O’Neal? Check. Taking a zero gravity vacation in space? Check. That’s right–Justin Bieber will launch into space aboard Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic commercial space program with his manager Scooter Braun.
There was a time when astronauts were required to be well versed in the ways of astrophysics–now they just have to be well versed in the ways of choreography and swag. Of course, Bieber would never miss the opportunity to cross such a historical milestone with a music stunt. When Branson tweeted the news Bieber is a future astronaut, the Biebs retweeted with a brilliant thought: “Let’s shoot a music video in SPACE!! #nextLEVEL.”
Next level is right. The only question that remains–who will design his space suit? We’re seeing bold metallics with heavy technical detailing.
The Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo seats two pilots and six passengers, reaching an altitude of about 68 miles–AKA the zero gravity barrier. A single flight costs about $250,000 USD and other high profile passengers are rumored to include people like Ashton Kutcher, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
