Lady Gaga is officially taking her out-of-this-world performance style to the next level.
The 27-year-old pop star will sing in outer space in early 2015, E! News confirms. Zero G Colony, a three-day hi-tech music festival, is set to take place at Spaceport America, New Mexico, and the climax of the even will feature the Mother Monster performing the first ever gig in outer space.
While some reports suggest Zero G Colony is a tech festival, we've learned that the event is a high-concept ground event music festival, where guests will experience A-list entertainment, music, cutting-edge technology and futuristic attractions.
On the third day of the event, Lady Gaga will take off from the Spaceport on board a Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two spacecraft and, upon reaching space, the singer will become the first ever-recording artist to perform outside the atmosphere, in zero gravity.
The performer herself hinted at the news on her Twitter page today, simply tweeting the hashtag "#GagaInSpace2015."
Gaga most recently released her latest single, Dope, from her forthcoming album ARTPOP, which is the final song available for purchase before the album hits airwaves on Monday, Nov. 11.
The heavily hyped record, which includes 15 tracks including the hit single "Applause," also features collaborations with R.Kelly, as well as T.I., Too $hort and Twista.
While Gaga has released a few songs from ARTPOP—which is, according to the singer "designed be a trip, heard from start to finish"—"Applause" was leaked early and happened to drop the same day as Katy Perry's single "Roar," sparking rumors of a feud between the two singers.
John Mayer's missus later insisted that there was no "beef" between the two pop stars, and they even tweeted their support for each other, despite the fact that Gaga was less than pleased with the purported leak.
Lady G most recently appeared at the first ever YouTube Music Awards on Sunday Nov. 3, where she arrived wearing a bizarre look similar to the cover art from her single "Dope," which included a black top hat, black shades and a black leather shirtdress in addition to a yellow, decaying, faux grin.
During a guest appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the "Applause" singer later said that her crazy outfits are how she deals with her "insanity."
"From when I was young I had voices in my head, and for the longest time I was drinking and doing a lot of drugs and it was the clothing and the artistry that saved me," she explained.
The performer was also recently nominated for a People's Choice Awards for Favorite Music Fan Following thanks to her loyal Little Monsters.
