So sorry, Beyonce stans, but a study has proven that as a collective group, y’all just aren’t that smart:
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 favourite music acts and genres by analysing data on social networking sites.
Poor, stupid thangs. SMH
In other Beyonce news, her Halo album has surpassed the success of Destiny’s Child top records:
Beyonce has officially topped the charting success of Destiny’s Child in the Top 40.
“Halo,” Beyonce’s fourth single from the now multi-Platinum album “I Am.. Sasha Fierce,” became the former Destiny’s Child singer’s 16th solo record to enter the top 40 this week.
Moving from no.41 to no.37, the Ryan Tedder assisted single helped Beyonce top the previously set Destiny’s Child record of 13 top 40 singles.
In related news, Beyonce has selected “Ego” as the next single from “I Am… Sasha Fierce”.
Beyonce is also slated to appear in the forthcoming Rainforest Films/Screen Gems flick “Obsessed”. The flick, also starring Idris Elba, is due in theaters April 24.
There’s certainly no denying that she’s getting it in with this album. Nice.
