Justin Bieber to Become an ASTRONAUT — Virgin Galactic Says He’s Booked

0606-justin-bieber-space-virginFerraris apparently aren”t fast enough for Justin Bieber …. “cause the singer has just been booked on a ROCKETSHIP DESTINED FOR SPACE … so says Virgin Galactic honcho Richard Branson

Branson himself confirmed that Biebs and manager Scooter Braun are on the V.G. manifesto, tweeting this morning: “Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!”

Branson”s venture just completed its first rocket-powered test last month, and the company is planning to start commercial flights next year — plenty of time for Bieber to order a tacky, blinged-out astronaut suit.

Tickets reportedly start around $250k … but it”s unclear if JB is paying for the ride himself … or if the trip will be comped.

No word on when Bieber is scheduled for lift off.
