Wait, Is Liking Taylor Swift No Longer Cool? I Thought Liking Taylor Swift Was Cool


According to a possibly unrepresentative and certainly methodologically unsound sampling of young college students*, it's not cool to like Taylor Swift.


While causal factors are unknown, early hypotheses suggest this shift in attitude springs from the use of a Right Said Fred sample.


Do these results confirm that “the young people” have no musical taste? Or do they challenge fogey-notions of a homogenous youth culture?


One thing is certain from this study: nobody dislikes Adele.


Seriously, everyone adores Adele. She’s lovely.


*I just asked a group of like, 15 young college students. That can’t be statistically significant.
