If you could drop the $225,000 to nab a seat into space, would you? The answer for pop singer Justin Bieber is a resounding yes. Earlier this week Virgin Galactic Founder Sir Richard Branson took the young man’s money and set him up on a list to become one of the first people (read: celebrities) to travel into space.

The business mogul and space entrepreneur broke the news in usual fashion late Wednesday, sending out a congratulatory message via the social networking site, Twitter.

The Virgin Galactic Flight Program is not up and running at this juncture, but that hasn’t stopped the company from taking deposits from numerous people as an assurance that he or she will get one of the first space rides. In fact, Ashton Kutcher became the 500th person to nab a ticket into space in 2012. Other celebrities who have purchased tickets include Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Tom Hanks. Let’s not forget Ned Rocknroll’s wife Kate Winslet, who nabbed a free ticket, probably thanks to being part of the family and also probably a little bit because she once carried Branson’s mom out of a burning building.

Unsurprisingly, Bieber didn’t do something kind or heroic to warrant a free ticket, but he did shoot back a Twitter message discussing shooting a music video in space. Hope he’s still as enthusiastic after all the G-Force testing and other training he’ll have to go through should the project one day actually come together.
