Ferraris apparently aren't fast enough for Justin Bieber .... 'cause the singer has just been booked on a ROCKETSHIP DESTINED FOR SPACE ... so says Virgin Galactic honcho Richard Branson.
Branson himself confirmed that Biebs and manager Scooter Braun are on the V.G. manifest, tweeting this morning: "Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!"
Branson's venture just completed its first rocket-powered test last month, and the company is planning to start commercial flights next year -- plenty of time for Bieber to order a tacky, blinged-out astronaut suit.
Tickets reportedly start around $250k ... but it's unclear if JB is paying for the ride himself ... or if the trip will be comped.
