    When pop music meets a political issue: examining how "born this way" influences attitudes toward gays and gay rights policies
  • Autore: S. Mo Jang ; Hoon Lee
  • Descrizione: Although popular music and politics have been linked in various contexts, surprisingly little is known about whether and how popular songs can influence political attitudes. The present study provides initial empirical evidence that popular music affects public opinion by altering the standards for subsequent political judgments. Using an experiment of a national sample, the current study demonstrates that Lady Gaga's highly popularized song, 'Born This Way,' primes genetic explanations of homosexuality in citizens' ensuing evaluations of gay rights issues. The findings revealed that vocalized lyrics are the key element of the priming effect among other musical components. Adapted from the source document.
