Justin Bieber the astronaut?
But Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun are heading to space on a suborbital flight with Virgin Galactic, which Virgin founder Richard Branson shared with his Twitter followers Wednesday.
"Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!" he tweeted. Bieber later re-tweeted the message, confirming the big news.
Bieber and Braun will also be in good company. Ashton Kutcher, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio are among the other celebrities who have signed up for flights on Virgin Galactic, which start at $250,000 and up to travel on Branson's rocket-powered SpaceShipTwo.
