Justin Bieber Headed To Space?
What else is left for Justin Bieber to do on this planet? Between racking up the dough from album sales and world tours, and getting a crash course in growing pains, the answer is not much. Now, the Biebs has set his sights much higher. The “Right Here” singer and manager Scooter Braun are reportedly looking to launch into space on the Virgin Atlantic, mogul man Richard Branson’s space venture for tourists.
Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!

A slew of A-listers that have signed up the meteoric journey include Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Ashton Kutcher. Tickets on the space voyage have reportedly risen from $200,000 to $250,000, chump change to Bieber’s estimated $10 million net worth. While JB hasn’t confirmed if he’s ready for lift-off, he did express his desires to perform in space.

SpaceShipTwo hosted its first flight in California in April while more rockets are expected to launch from Spaceport America in New Mexico as early as next year, NBC reports. Maybe the only way for the Canadian teen phenom to stay out of trouble is to send him out of this world. Photo Credit: Getty
