Lady Gaga originally had purchased a ticket aboard the shuttle. The Born this Way megastar, and everybody else, paid $250,000 a ticket. She doesn't need the ticket she bought now that she's the musical act. She said she already was thinking of an amazing show for the 2015 trip. The Born this Way megastar was eager for the event to be more than about her.
Lady Gaga had an exciting 2013 even though she had to cancel a tour to get hip surgery and her album ARTPOP got mixed reviews. However, the prospect of her space trip has sent her spirits touring. She said the opportunity to perform was an honor. It was a great challenge to come up with a message of love that would blast from space and the great beyond, she said.
