ROBBIE WILLIAMS IS NOT BREEDING A GENERATION OF SLACK-JAWED IDIOTS

Apparently, an observation by Austria's LernQuadrat that reported that children can study more effectively if they listen to rock music with a regular beat has become so scrambled today's Sun believes LISTENING to Robbie Williams can make kids brainier, say experts.

Well, not really - listening to rock can help children concentrate, actually. LernQuadrat director Konrad Zimmermann clarifies:

"Classical music, which has long been considered beneficial to learning, is obviously not fit for the world of young people today. They need to know and like the music in order for it to have a stimulating effect on learning."

The need for the children to like the music also makes The Sun's other claim that "Mel B and Norah Jones also help" look a little dodgy, too.

Speaking as a recent Psychology graduate who specialised in developmental psychology and the effect of music training of the development of children's spatial-temporal abilities, my considered and learned opinion is that's bollocks.

They appear to have confused rock music with rock dj.
