Lady Gaga is a true original - and now she will be literally "out of this world" soon! It was announced today that the superstar will be the first artist to perform in outer space. In 2015, Lady Gaga will be taking off as a passenger of the Virgin Galactic spaceship and will sing a song during the Zero G Colony, a high-tech musical festival that is happening in New Mexico. "She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere," a source told Us Weekly. Lady Gaga's journey will take place about six months after Virgin Galactic begins to take the public into outer space. This will be not just a historical moment, but really an epic highlight in Gaga's already very unconventional career. However, this isn't the first time an artist has taken his or her music to new heights or performed in unusual places. Click through for 8 outrageous places bands have performed! -By Sunny Chanel

Entrepreneurs are plentiful on the Internet, and many of them have successfully transitioned from "regular" 9-5 jobs to working for themselves. I asked a group of these Internet entrepreneurs when they decided it was time to strike out on their own. Their answers varied, and they're below, but one thing is perfectly clear: only you know when it's time to strike out on your own. Nobody can tell you when you should leave your day job for the potential reward (and guaranteed risk) of self-employment. But we can learn and be inspired by the stories below.

It's easy to be in casual denial about the reality of your financial life until it comes to bite you. I definitely had my years of happy denial! Consumer credit scores have a big impact on our financial lives and it is important that we take care to do the right things when it comes to improving credit and maintaining a high score. It is also important to recognize what actions or inactions will hurt our credit score. Some consumers make mistakes that cause their credit score to drop significantly. Even if you don't need a loan in the foreseeable future, having good credit matters for other purposes, including lower insurance premiums, your ability to rent an apartment, and in some cases, your ability to get a job. Trust me, good credit is super important to most life decisions you'll need to make, even if that doesn't seem like the case at the moment. Don't wait until you need a good credit score to fix your financial mistakes because by then it'll likely be too late.

You're too independent to follow anyone else's lead. In fact, you'd rather show them how it's done. Unfortunately you have to sit idle while they give you their so-called expert advice. Grin and bear it, Aries -- it's all part of the process.

OprahOver the weekend, Oprah decluttered her Montecito mansion and three other properties in a Santa Barbara yard sale that brought in more than $600,000(!). (Proceeds will benefit her girls' leadership academy in South Africa, and not half of a Crate & Barrel chair, the traditional end goal of yard-sale proceeds.) The auction, which began Saturday morning at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in Carpinteria, sold off hundreds of items, including, but not limited to, a set of antique library stairs that Oprah once impulse-purchased in London; 19th-century dolls from a collection that Oprah confessed was beginning to scare house guests; the gingham couch on which she lost countless Scrabble games; a fleet of Oprah-autographed scooters, which we imagine were used during Oprah's short-lived scooter-gang phase; and various mediums of artwork featuring Oprah's famous visage-including, but not limited to, a five-foot-tall copy of her Vogue cover.

Such is the life of a pop star: one minute your face (er, your be-draped form) is being splashed across the tabloids as you attempt an escape from a Brazilian brothel; the next you're in the news for investing a ton of money in a social network. Oh, and throw in a water bottle pelting, for good measure. Such has been the past few days for 20-year-old Justin Bieber.
The social network is called "Shots of Me" (which sounds to us like one of those faulty international English translations of the word "selfie"), the concept of which is being kept under wraps (though it will have a gaming component, apparently). Fortune reported that Bieber led a seed round for the company to the (falsetto) tune (sorry) of $1.1 million. This is notable in that its the first venture capital investment Bieber's made independent of his manager Scooter Braun (they grow up so fast, etc.).

I was traveling recently, and I realized that there were a ton of hidden fees! It all started when I had to pay to check my bag, because the cost of carrying my bag on was double that of checking it. Then I got to thinking: Nothing irritates me more than having to shell out money I didn't think I'd need to spend. Then I started thinking about all the ways companies attempt to take our money. I came up with a list of sneaky fees paired with suggestions of what to do about them. Sometimes it's a simple phone call, but sometimes there's a bit more to it.
