All Canadian celebrities are related
The Atlantic Wire reported
Justin Bieber is a blood relative of basically every famous Canadian.
The genealogy website Ancestry.com has done another shameless (but successful) PR ploy by doing some research into Canadian teen halfling-god Justin Bieber to see what other famous people he might be related to. And wouldn't you know it, he shares his beboppin' blood with an array of Canadian entertainment royalty.
Justin Bieber is 11th cousins once removed with Ryan Gosling, 10th cousins three times removed with Celine Dion, and the 12th cousin of Avril Lavigne. So how about that! That means he's probably, like, half-siblings with a lot of the Degrassi cast. And Anne of Green Gables is probably his aunt.
Well, look. This is fun and all, but the fact of the matter is that if you go back far enough, everyone is related to everyone. Absolutely everyone, all the way back to Adam and Steve. It's just how humanity works or something. Those of you with Canadian heritage? You're probably related to Justin Bieber. You are probably Justin Bieber's grampa. Just think about it. It might be possible. And the only way to find out? To go and give money to Ancestry.com. Amazing how that works, isn't it? Anyway, long live Canada and its single, weird family. [People]
