Justin Bieber Is Going to Space Sadly, he is not staying there By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Jun 6, 2013 10:30 AM CDT 53 comments Comments Justin Bieber watches Game 7 in the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals playoff series between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers, Monday, June 3, 2013 in Miami. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky) (Newser) – Justin Bieber and manager Scooter Braun are going to space as part of Virgin Galactic's space tourism program, Sir Richard Branson has announced. Tragically, Branson did not indicate that Bieber would be left in space once he arrived. Bieber will join such other celebrity "astronauts" as Ashton Kutcher and Leonardo DiCaprio, and reportedly Tom Hanks and Brangelina, the Daily Mail reports. If you'd like to petition Branson to make it a one-way trip, you can bid $18,500 to have a bottle of champagne with him as part of a charity auction. Meanwhile, in other Bieber news, TMZ reports that his security guards are being investigated for allegedly assaulting a paparazzo in Miami while Bieber skateboarded.
