Which Canadian Singer Is More Famous Than Justin Bieber? You’ll Never Guess!

Justin Bieber
Pacific Coast News

If someone asked you who the most famous Canadian is, you’d probably shout “Justin Bieber” automatically, involuntarily and instantly.

Well, the researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, aka MIT, employed scientific means in their research to find out exactly who is the most famous citizen from our neighbor to the north and guess what? It’s not Da Biebs, but it is a pop star.

According to the study, which quantifies fame via history and collection of data through Wikipedia entries in multiple languaes through an interactive website dubbed “Pantheon,” it’s…drumroll, please… Avril Lavigne.

No, seriously. We were surprised, too.

The singer was followed on the list by actor and funnyman Jim Carrey.

The Biebs cruised into the No. 3 slot. That’s a paltry position for him, since he is used to being No. 1 all the time! We won’t lull you into a nap with details of what factored into the findings. If you want to further explore this research, go here.

Below is the list yielded by the site and the research.
