    Post Study shows Beyonce fans are the most stupid



    ....Your taste in music reflects your intelligence – and Beyonce fans are among the most stupid, it was claimed today. Devotees of the Destiny’s Child star came close to the bottom of the pile in a student’s comparison between exam results and musical tastes. But they are not the worst of the worst – unless they are also fans of rapper Lil’ Wayne – because his followers are deemed the least intelligent. Devotees of Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z also ranked low in the scale, it was claimed. They are among the findings of the probe by Virgil Griffiths, a PhD student in America, who puts Beethoven listeners as far and away the smartest.

    Griffith compared students’ scores in SAT exams with their favorite music acts and genres by analyzing data on social networking sites. Those who prefer Indie music are most intelligent, while gospel, pop and rock fans were all ranked at the lower end of the scale. Those who are mad about pop music did not fare well in the analysis.

    As well as Beyonce, fans of Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z both ranked at the bottom of the scale. Their supporters all got below 1,000 in SAT scores, with the average being a mark of 1071 out of 1600. Fans of composer Beethoven were way ahead of the rest with a score of more than 1300.

    This is the most ridiculous "study" I've ever heard. I'd like to see the supposed science behind it. Yes, Beyonce sucks, that doesn't make you dumber than anyone else who likes pop stars.

    I do question some people's taste in music, but it doesn't necessarily make them dumb.

    analyzing data on social networking sites, what kind of researcher does that? does not seem very scientific.

    also, what happened to the electronic music fans?
