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. 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.”
The three-day Zero G Colony event will take place at Spaceport America, with Gaga’s performance happening on the final day of the festival at dawn.
