Miley Cyrus Voted Worst Celebrity Influence

The people have spoken—and what they have said is that Miley Cyrus makes for a lousy role model.

The Hannah Montana star has been voted Worst Celebrity Influence of 2009 in a new online poll conducted by AOL’s (Just So You Know), beating out such celebs as Britney Spears and speech-stopping rapper Kanye West.

Cyrus garnered 42 percent of the votes in the poll. And given that the Web site is aimed at 9-to-15-year-olds, it seems that a good portion of her target audience does not approve of her shenanigans.

No specific reasons were given for the dubious honor, but in a year during which she was accused of racism and roundly criticized for pole dancing at the Teen Choice Awards, it’s not hard to guess.

The good news for Miley is that, with some serious competition coming up fast, she’ll probably be knocked out of the top spot next year.
