|"I'M SORRY, BELOVED, |
BUT WE MIGHT BE KIN"
Yeah, I love this. Bobbi Kristina can
marry her g.d. BROTHER but I can't
marry Ryan because he might be
my 19th cousin thrice removed.
So what ancestry.com has discovered is that pretty much any Canadian celebrity of any stature is related to Justin Bieber. They've been sniffing around his roots (er, so to speak) for about a year now and they've determined he is related to Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion and Ryan Gosling, all of whom have ancestors who came to Quebec from France and immediately started breeding future superstars.
The good news is that, having spent my early formative years in Quebec, there appears to be a good chance that I'm related to someone famous. (In fact I'm on ancestry.com RIGHT NOW, checking to see if I'm related to Wayne Gretzy, Shania Twain or Kiefer Sutherland. Because if I am, I am hitting my cousins up for a big fat loan!)
The bad news is that there also appears to be a chance I'm related to Ryan Gosling. Which means our lavish wedding, which I have already booked and which will happen the instant he dumps that harpy Eva Mendes, may well be illegal.
