Sir Richard Branson to help Lady Gaga get married - in space

LADY Gaga is planning to get married in space.

The 28-year-old singer wants to have a commitment ceremony with Taylor Kinney, 33, outside of the Earth's atmosphere at the beginning of next year while onboard Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic flight.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Gaga and Taylor want to make a pledge for life, and think the space flight is too big an opportunity to pass up.

"It would be typical of her to have the least conventional 'wedding ever. Of course it would be a simulated-style marriage as there wouldn't be a priest or religious figure there. But they don't care about convention, it's more about making each other a life-long promise."

Meanwhile, the 'Applause' hitmaker is set to perform during the trip into space on the special flight - which will cost $250,000 per seat - and she is looking forward to using the opportunity to spread a "message of love".

She said: "Performing in space is such an honour. I want to challenge myself to come up with something that will not only bring everyone together but will also have a message of love that blasts into the beyond."

Meanwhile, Gaga - who will reportedly get her ticket into space for free - will have to prepare a month prior to the event to make sure her body can handle the changes in the atmospheric pressure whilst singing.
