Miley Cyrus is massive. She’s been one of the biggest artists since 2006, selling more than 7 million albums, starting her own fashion line, selling-out a world wide tour, and taking $154 million at the worldwide box-office for Hannah Montana The Movie, so no matter how you look at her, she is simply huge.
But today the Disney princess has been knocked off her perch, as she’s been voted the worst celebrity influence of 2009, by the very people who made her a star in the first place, 9-15 year olds.
In the poll by JSYK.com, 42% of the people asked voted Miley Cyrus the ‘Worst Celebrity Influence of The Year’. Other celebs in the poll included Britney Spears and Kanye West, who took second and third places respectively.
No reasons were given for the poor result for Miley Cyrus, but it does come after a year in which Miley has been controversial in some of her decisions. They include:
Miley Cyrus did well in another poll though, making her the ‘Fourth Favourite Female Artist’, behind Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Beyonce. The poll attracted almost 50,000 votes.
