Is Harry Styles Headed to Space?
Justin Bieber and One Direction's Harry Styles are both outta this world in terms of talent and cuteness. But The Biebs will be --literally-- when he boards Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic maiden voyage into space in 2014. Rumor has it that Hazza wants to join him on that space cruise and be an "astronaut."
It's being reported that Styles forked over £150,000 for a slot. That's translates to roughly $240,000 in U.S. dollars. Despite offering that much cash, Styles is not promised a seat on the shuttle. He is trying to get in on the action a bit too late and seats are at a premium.
A source said, "Harry heard about the voyage a while ago but something triggered his interest in the past few weeks. He’s got no idea if it’s realistic with it being so close – with his obligations to the band – but he’s willing to move things around to make it happen."
The insider also claimed, "Unfortunately for Harry, you need more than money to get a seat at this point as it’s already so late in the game."
Other celebs that have secured a spot aboard the ship are Brad Pitt and Ashton Kutcher. Hey guys, make room for Harry!
You know, since 1D are dropping 'Midnight Memories' at the end of the year and the fact that they are one of the most in-demand bands working today means Hazza might not be able to make it work and thus make this dream a reality. Maybe next time!
