Lady Gaga

Romney Supporters Love Lady Gaga, Obama Supporters Prefer Britney Spears

All according to the probably not-that-scientific findings from social service StumbleUpon

Marc Piasecki

Online social service StumbleUpon compiled its user information to determine the differences in musical preference between Obama and Romney supporters, and illustrated the results in a handy-dandy graph. Yes, yes, we're sick of politics too, but this is actually sort of interesting.

Would you have guessed that Romney supporters' pop star of choice is Lady Gaga? Us neither. Other faves of Romney folks include Led Zeppelin and Johnny Cash.

Obama fans prefer Britney Spears, which is also sort of surprising. They also enjoy Radiohead and John Lennon.

Aside from being an interesting factoid, these tidbits could actually prove useful. Believe it or not, some voters are still undecided! And, at this point, if little things like health care, woman's rights or foreign policy don't sway your vote, maybe musical groupthink will. So, any undecided Little Monsters out there? Your presidential ballot just got a whole lot easier.

August 26: The Cool Kids' Table

Despite it being on a Monday, anyone who is anyone showed up at last night's Emmy awards—from Stephen Colbert, Weird Al, Lena Dunham to so much more. Backstage, "The Voice" coaches Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani mingled with "Scandal" actress, Kerry Washington. Ah, to be part of the beautiful and famous crowd must be awesome, even hanging out backstage is cool!
