Miley Cyrus Tops Worst Celeb Influence Poll


Miley Cyrus


Her pole dancing at this year's annual Teen Choice Awards has led her to be voted the first in the poll of Worst Celebrity Influence of 2009.

Though idolized by many teenagers all over the world, Miley Cyrus has been voted the Worst Celebrity Influence of the year in an online poll compiled by AOL's JSYK.com (Just So You Know), which is aimed at 9-15 year-olds. Garnering 42 percent of votes, she pushes aside singer Britney Spears and rapper Kanye West into second and third places respectively.

Miley's pole dancing at this year's annual Teen Chioce Awards is cited as the one reason why she is chosen the first on the poll. "I think Miley is in an interesting space where she is trying to graduate from being 'Hannah Montana' and a Disney channel celebrity and coming into her own and having a career beyond Disney," says Stephanie Cohen, editor of JSYK.com.

Stephanie continues, "I think her fans still want her to be the sweet Hannah Montana and she is trying to age up...Parents are definitely resisting it." Joining Miley, Kanye, and Britney in the Worst Celebrity Influence poll are Vanessa Hudgens at the fourth spot with 9 percent votes, and movie actor Shia LaBeouf who is ranked fifth with 3 percent votes.

In the meantime, Miley's fellow Disney star Selena Gomez is voted the Best Celebrity Influence of 2009. The 17-year-old actress-singer earns 30 percent votes, besting her best friend Taylor Swift who gets 28 percent votes. "I think Taylor Swift has done a great job of showing her true self and coming across as very sweet and down to earth. A lot of her songs are about the underdog and teens can really relate to her," says Stephanie of the country music singer.

Rounding out the Top 5 of Best Celebrity Influence poll are Nick Jonas, Emma Watson, and Justin Bieber respectively.
