These 12 Space-Based Music Videos Are Out Of This World

Space is the place for singers and rappers and kittens (oh my) | YouTube

At the American Music Awards last Sunday, Miley Cyrus performed in front of a computer-generated kitten that lip-synced in outer space.

But while Ms. Cyrus' AMAs space-based screensaver visuals -- a subtle nod, perhaps, to her recent extraterrestrial video romp with Future seen in the photo above -- was a shout-out to the Internet, it also reflected the music industry's long-running claim that space is, indeed, the place.

In fact, earlier this month Lady Gaga even booked the world's first concert in outer space, set for 2015, while Bieber announced in June he'd be bringing his downward spiral into space aboard Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic.

So we aimed our rocket ship for planet YouTube where were discovered 12 music videos -- by artists ranging from Britney and Backstreet Boys to Diplo and The Darkness to Katy and Kanye -- proving just how space-obsessed musicians really are. (Oh, and thanks to Chris Hadfield, one case of how music-obsessed astronauts really are.)
