Britney Spears and N*SNYC’s Lance Bass Are Genetically Related

As fate would have it Lance Bass and Britney Spears don’t just share a musical connection — they’re are also biologically related.

Appearing in a recent episode of “2 Lies & A Leaf” with Ancestry, Lance and his husband, Michael Turchin were asked to answer the following question: “Which unexpected distant relative is a part of Lance’s musical family tree?”

Between Faith Hill, Spears, and Elvis Presley, Bass guessed the rock ‘n’ roll icon though he said:

“I really hope it’s Britney, but there’s no way,”

While Turchin chose Spears, when it was announced that Bass is actually a relative of the “Oops!… I Did It Again” songstress, he gasped, “Are you kidding me?” 

Ancestry confirmed that Bass and Spears are sixth cousins, once removed. “I wanted to find out I was related to the Queen, turns out I’m related to the Queen of Pop — and that’s even better,” Bass said.
