Is Selena Gomez really the best celebrity role model for today’s youth?

Associated Content recently declared that Selena is the young Hollywood celebrity for teens to look up to. While there’s no denying that Celebuzz’s reigning Teen Queen is always kind to her fans, there are many other famous tweeners out there that work hard to be good role models.

Other Disney stars like Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are involved in multiple charities and work hard to maintain their wholesome image.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of non-Disney stars that lead admirable lives: Emma Watson manages to maintain a successful film career while attending Brown University. Emma is also heavily involved with People Tree, a clothier that focuses on Fair Trade fashion.

Pop sensation Justin Bieber may have a reputation for being a prankster, but the “Baby” singer tries to maintain a wholesome image. In fact, the 16-year-old superstar made a promise to his mother that he will “respect women” and abstain from sex.

Stars like Taylor Swift, Robert Pattinson and Miley Cyrus are also popular with teens and many young people look up to them for inspiration.
