Justin Bieber has taken home a few moonman statues in the past, but is he about to become one himself?
Virgin Group founder/resident billionaire Richard Branson says Biebs and his manager Scooter Braun have signed up for an upcoming suborbital spaceflight on the Virgin Galactic.
A ticket for a Virgin Galactic flight to outerspace rings in at a cool $250,000 per seat, according to E!, who also reported Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, and Steven Hawking as Biebs' potential travel companions. It might seem like a pretty penny to most of us, but it sounds like chump change for the Canadian pop star who clocked in at number three on Forbes Celebrity 100, earning $55 million as of May 2012.
What do you think of Bieber's potential flight to outerspace? Do you think Branson should have let the singer break his own news? Comment here.
