Default Gaga and Madonna related?
Quote:
It's no wonder Lady Gaga's music sometimes sounds suspiciously similar to Madonna's greatest hits.

The singers are related, according to celebrity genealogist Chris Child.

"They are ninth cousins once removed," he told the Boston Globe.

Child, who works for the New England Historic Genealogical Society, reportedly provided proof, showing how he found their common ancestors: a farming couple who moved from France to Quebec in the 1600s.

"When I saw that Lady Gaga had French Canadian ancestry," he explained, "I thought there might be something there."

Child said he can trace French Canadian families "back 200 years within minutes" because priests in Quebec handily indexed all marriages between the 1600s and the 1900s.

Another recent discovery: Prince William and Kate Middleton were related before they walked down the aisle last month.

The pair is connected distantly through the late Princess Diana's ancestry, Child said.

Madonna has her own connection to the royal family, too. Or at least she used to.

The music icon's ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, is Middleton's fourth cousin.

Reps for Madonna and Lady Gaga have not yet responded for comment.

i dont really think being related to someone could make you more successful unless like your willow smith and your dads will smith, but like for gaga, she worked really hard to be where she is now, and it's not like she's famous because madonna is.
