Justin Bieber wants to be an astronaut

Wellington: Justin Bieber has revealed his desire to become an astronaut and said that he would consider joining Ashton Kutcher on his trip into space.

It was recently disclosed that the 34-year-old has signed up to travel into outer space with Sir Richard Branson on the Virgin Galactic space plane.

Bieber insists that he always dreamed of being in a rocket, but admits the reported US200000 dollars price tag to join ‘The Two And A Half Men’ actor on the suborbital spaceflight is off-putting.

“If I could choose anything else? I would probably be an astronaut because I want to go to space. So that would be cool,” Stuff.co.nz quoted him as telling UK TV show ‘Daybreak’.

“Maybe. I think Ashton Kutcher is doing that. But I don’t know if I want to spend that much money...” he added.
