So it turns out Lady Gaga and Madonna share more than just their look, sound and gay fan base: they also share common ancestors. In a twist straight out of an M. Night Shyamalan movie, a celebrity genealogist has concluded that Gaga and Madge are actually distant relatives, which would really explain a lot. I mean, what other reason would there be for Gaga to be so similar to Madonna? Other than the possibility that Gaga just takes the most successful aspects of other artists and recycles them into a meticulously calculated image that appeals to the widest range of people while offering little actual value? Ha ha! Silly.
