The 'Venus' singer says she is looking forward to being the first pop star to sing out in space.

Lady Gaga has confirmed plans to be the first performer to sing in outer space fresh from the launch of her new album 'ARTPOP'.

The 'Applause' singer says she was asked "specifically" to sing as part of a Virgin Galactic flight in 2015, after the first commercial space flights begin.

"I did not buy a ticket, no, my ticket was given to me," Gaga revealed via Us Weekly over the weekend. "I was asked specifically to sing.

"So I'm going to be the first recording artist to sing in space," she explained. "And I did not purchase my flight.

"This is a special festival event held by Zero G Colony and I will be flying space two months after the first commercial flights take off."

The US star celebrated the release of 'ARTPOP' with a special event that saw her wearing the world's first flying dress, which levitated off the ground at the special promotional event.
