Justin Bieber has a few distant cousins you may have heard of -- oh, just Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne and Ryan Gosling. Basically if you're Canadian and you're famous for something other than hockey or comedy, you're probably related to Bieber.The revelation comes courtesy of the genealogists at Ancestry.com, who say the familial relations stem from two different French couples who emigrated from France in the 17th century. Mathurin Roy and Marguerite Bire are the couple connecting Bieber, Gosling and Lavigne (11th cousins once removed, 12th cousins, respectively). He's related to Celine Dion (10th cousins three times removed) through Jacques Vezina and Marie Boisdon.

They must've been some magical people to have spurned so many famous Canadians. Or at least Ryan Gosling. It would definitely take some amount of magic to create somebody like Ryan Gosling.
