   PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Maybe this is where Ellen DeGeneres' love of music and dance comes from. Turns out she's related to Madonna. Ancestry.com says DeGeneres and Madonna are 11th cousins. They're related to a common 10th great-grandfather, a Frenchman named Martin Aucoin. Aucoin's daughters left France to settle in Nova Scotia, where both Madonna and DeGeneres's families lived for generations.
