Lady Gaga intends to perform from space in 2015, to the delight of her so-called "little monsters," US Weekly magazine reported.

The New York singer is one of the celebrities who has booked a ticket on the space flights the firm Virgin Atlantic, owned by multimillionaire Richard Branson, plans to offer.

The diva will sing a number from space that will be heard during the 2015 edition of the Zero G Colony festival in New Mexico.

"She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere," a source told the publication.

US Weekly adds that the singer, who reappeared on stage in September after undergoing a hip operation, has taken out a life insurance policy for a stratospheric sum.

The singer of hits such as "Paparazzi" and "Alejandro" thus joins the ranks of other stars who intend to travel on future space flights, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Virgin Galactic aspires to begin its suborbital tourist flights in 2014, an exclusive experience that costs $250,000 per ticket.

Around 630 people have made reservations for the flights so far and the firm has collected more than $80 million in deposits. EFE
