Genealogist Says Madonna and Lady Gaga Are Related
They may have more in common than just their music and fashion sense! Boston celebrity genealogist Chris Child claims Madonna and Lady Gaga are related! It really is in the genes!
Child told the Boston Globe that the outlandish pop divas are "ninth cousins once removed." He explains, “When I saw that Lady Gaga had French Canadian ancestry I thought there might be something there."
But that's not all! Child says that Madonna's ex is related to the latest addition of the Royal family. The genealogist claims that British filmmaker Guy Ritchie is fourth cousins with Prince William's new wife Kate Middleton, which may explain why Madonna’s ex was present at Westminster Abbey for the April 29th wedding!
The genealogist has a substantial amount of credibility. He’s currently working on family trees for 2012 presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann, but has yet to start on Donald Trump's family line.
Gaga and Madonna shared the limelight this year when Gaga's song "Born This Way" was thought to have sounded very similar to Madonna's track "Express Yourself." Since then, Gaga has come out with her song "Judas" and it's video, her track"Edge of Glory," and on Monday, May 16, she will be releasing her "Hair" tune.
