Justin Bieber to be a space cadet

Up, up and away! Justin Bieber has become the newest addition to Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Space mission. The pop star and his manager Scooter Braun will join Leonardo DiCaprio and Ashton Kutcher for a trip to space that will cost them $500,000 combined. Branson announced through a tweet: “Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!” Although Justin did not address his new endeavor on his own twitter account, he did retweet Branson’s comment. Earlier in February, the star said on Twitter to his followers, “I wanna do a concert in space,’ which invoked a reply from NASA, ‘Maybe we can help you with that.’ Other stars rumored to join this project include Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as Beyoncé and Jay Z, who wish to record the first music video in space. ~Rebecca Raveendran

    He’s already a space cadet. And I don’t mean in a good way. Time for the kid to grow up

    um…. I think the famous Canadian Astronaught Chris Hadfield is already the first to record a music video in space (project include Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as Beyoncé and Jay Z, who wish to record the first music video in space.). Why does Bieber have Myley Cyrus hair?

    Can we all chip in and double the cost of Bieber’s ticket to convince Branson to leave him in space? The world will thank him.
