Beyonce Fans Just Aren’t That Smart

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.

    I’m not a fan of hers. I wonder how they would rate my intelligence. Her music has no substance at all. Her audience of homosexuals and people under the age of 24 is larger than I thought.

    ….dumb asses….

  • BSStinks

    While I’m not a Beyonce, Lil Wayne, or Justin Timberlake fan, this study is very classist.

    Saying that classical music is the most advanced form of music and that only people with a certain I.Q can appreciate it is very underestimating and disrespectful.

    What did you score on your SAT though?

  • Awesome-0-3000

    How are people going to be upset at the findings of this poll? It simply compared SAT scores to what people selected as their favorite artist. If Lil Wayne listeners averaged 700 and Beethoven listeners averaged 1500 there you have it. This is old by the way, a couple of weeks now.

    Hell I could have told you this tid bit of info without and Study Trails being done! Hey you like what you like, however that doesnt mean its good music. But as people grow and mature so will there taste and may move towards more rewarding ear stimulation. So all is not lost, to all the idiots out there repping today’s “r&b” and “rap” music as if its the greatest thing out…NOPE TRY AGAIN!
