Sir Richard Branson - Sir Richard Branson can't wait for Lady Gaga's space outfit

Sir Richard Branson insists Lady Gaga will find a ''pretty good'' costume for her performance in space.

The 63-year-old businessman admitted the 'Born This Way' hitmaker -who is set to sing outside of the Earth's atmosphere following the launch of his Virgin Galactic commercial space flights next year - is yet to come to him with concept ideas but is looking forward to the forthcoming project, which will cost $250,000 per seat.

Quizzed about whether he's excited about sending Gaga into space, he said: ''Of course, yeah. It is going to be most exciting thing I have done in my life - just the whole space programme, which I already am a few months off.

''I got a feeling she'll [Gaga] find one [costume] which is pretty good.''

Richard is a huge fan of Peter Gabriel, who was catapulted into the spotlight in the late 60s as part of rock band Genesis, but admits he tries not to constantly reminisce about the former generation of music.

Talking at the WE Day UK Event at London's Wembley Arena on Friday (07.03.14), he told BANG Showbiz: ''I always avoid the older person saying the music of the next generation is not as good as their generation but I was very lucky I did live in the time of great bands but I'm sure the music's just as good.''

Ellie Goulding, Prince Harry's girlfriend Cressida Bonas, Jennifer Hudson and former 'X Factor' UK contestants joined Richard on the red carpet for the event, which promotes global youth empowerment.
