OMG! Are Madonna And Lady Gaga Related? Say It Ain't So!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"According to celebrity genealogist Chris Child, Gaga and Madonna are distant cousins.

`They are ninth cousins once removed,` the New England Historic Genealogical Society specialist told the Boston Globe."


I hope lady Gaga doesn`t get wind of this crackpot`s crazy conclusion, it will only embolden the Madonna wannabe to steal more of The Material Girl`s music.

Lady Gaga often compares herself to Madonna, but that`s like me comparing myself to a Pulitzer Prize winning author because we`re both writers. That`s all that Madonna and Lady Gaga have in common: They are both singers.

Madonna and Lady Gaga may or may not be ninth cousins, but Madonna got all the brains and talent and Lady Gaga got the leftovers: chutzpah and desperation.
