Katy Perry: Sending Russell Brand to Outer Space!

Katy Perry is getting Russell Brand a birthday present that is out of this world – a trip to outer space!

Russell will fly on Richard Branson‘s Virgin Galactic space venture, a rep for the company tells E!, adding, “We are very excited to have him onboard.”

Seats on the shuttle run about $200,000. Riders travel 365,000 feet into the atmosphere, see the earth from space and float weightlessly for five minutes before heading back!

    Geez, that’s the best and COOLEST freakin’ present someone could give me. If only I were rich……or a celebrity….. Oh Dear.. Nevermind!

  • KellStar

    @Dreads: I agree. That is literally out of this world! $200 000 is a boatload of money but I assume there is still a hefty waiting list? I wonder if in a few decades this sort of “trip” will become more mainstream and accessible…. Too awesome!

  • OH

    Hope he never comes down.

    Awww that’s such a GREAT present! She must love him…but of course Russell deserves everything! I met him a few days ago in NYC…he was filming Arthur and he was so nice with all his fans! Katy is a lucky lady!

  • YES

    That is the MOST magnificent present I have ever heard!

    What’s so special about Space? You just get sea-sickness (or space-sickness) and fkn dizzy. Waste of $$$

  • lauren

  • forget

    aww cute! Wonder if Russell liked the present!

  • KLS

    $200000! WOW!
    But as far I know Russell he is not the materialistic type of guy…I think if Katy wrote him a sweet poem or a song he would liked it more!

  • sofia

    That’s why Russell would never date me! :(

  • dina

    I’m so obsessed with this couple! I love them so much!!! Especially Russell!

  • Sam

    that’s the coolest gift anyone could get, but why only 5 minutes??

  • KellStar

    On another note, I can only imagine the audio if the double rainbow guy took this trip.

  • T pain

    she should use that $200,000 to get him jaw surgey so he can close his mouth, get hip replacement surgery so he would have child bearing hips, and hair cut, and also an new stylist…

  • honestly…

    Wonder what the carbon footprint is for a 5-minute trip to space…

  • lerner

    Love them!

  • poppy

  • mari

  • demetrius

    If they can afford it who cares?

  • Sean

    What a moron. She’s nothing but a fad. 5 years from now when she’s not making any money, she’ll realize how stupid a decision that was.

  • caro

    Makes me sick the money they get. How much should someone receive to do his passion ? guhh

  • ummahyk
