Sorry 'Beliebers.' Your love for Justin Bieber's music, may mean that you're a psychopath, according to this latest study.

According to Washington Post, the idea came about thanks to movies like 'A Clockwork Orange,' and 'Silence of the Lambs,' where the token psychopaths happen to listen to classical music. This got them to thinking, 'what sort of music do psychopaths enjoy?'

So, researchers at NYU gathered students, and measured their levels of psychopathy individually. 'Psychopathic' students then listened to a wide range of songs to see which they liked most.

Researchers found, their favorites were Eminem's 'Lose Yourself,' Blackstreet's 'No Diggity,' and Justin Bieber's 'What Do You Mean?'

Their least favorites? 'My Sharona' by the Knack and 'Money for Nothing' by Dire Straits.

So, what does this all mean?

Researchers aren't sure what to make of their findings, just yet. I'll tell you one thing though, if listening to Justin Bieber makes me a psychopath, I embrace it whole-heartedly.
