Miley Cyrus Voted Worst Influence on American Youth
Even the youth think so
I can't even count the number of stories we wrote about Miley Cyrus's scandalous behavior in 2010. And clearly, we weren't the only ones who thought Miley was acting a bit out of control. She was just voted the worst influence on American youth in 2010. Do you agree?

Yup, AOL's Just So You Know website has named Miley Cyrus the worst celebrity influence for the second year in a row! She ended up with 58% of the 99,000 votes. The website has a target audience of kids age 9-15 and these were the people who were voting for Miley. Even kids realize she's a bad influence on them!
Who did Miley Cyrus beat out for this "honor"? Readers believe she was a worse influence than celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Teen Mom Amber Portwood, and recently-rehabbed Demi Lovato. She also beat out rapper Kanye West and Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford..
So, why did Miley Cyrus win this coveted title? I think it has something to do with where she cam from and who her fans are. I mean, sure Taylor Momsen is a bad influence, but she stars on Gossip Girl, a show for an older crowd. Most kids probably don't even realize how young Momsen is. Miley Cyrus was starring on Hannah Montana, a Disney show with an audience of little kids.
