In White Folks News: Katy Perry Is Buying Her Boyfriend a $200k Trip To Space?!

- By Bossip Staff

Build a school? Nope. Rebuild Haiti? Uh uh. Fly to nowhere? Absolutely! Katy Perry is blowing $200K to send her boyfriend Russell Brand into space on the World’s first commercial space ship. Hopefully he’ll stay there.

Katy Perry bought the British comedian a $200,000 ticket on the maiden voyage of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space venture for his 35th birthday, E! Online reported.

“It is true,” a rep for Virgin Galactic told E! News. “We are very excited to have him on board.”

After two to three days of intense astronaut training, Perry’s fiancé will reportedly travel more than 365,000 feet into the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed three times faster than the speed of sound.

“There will be 17-inch-diameter windows to look out onto,” a space agent for Virgin Galactic told E! “Passengers will be able to view Earth around 800 miles in any direction from space.”

While in space, Brand will float weightlessly for five minutes before returning to Earth.

Although Perry isn’t planning to join Brand on the trip, she’ll reportedly greet her hubby-to-be upon his return at Virgin Galactic’s New Mexico spaceport.

Perry, 25, won’t be the only one giving the funnyman a warm welcome, though.

“They will pop champagne, give you astronaut wings and give you a party,” the Virgin rep said.

We hope this sh*t don’t become the hot new “thing to do.” Then we’ll have to hear about rappers poppin bub in the space hub. No thanks.
