You'll Never Guess Who Kids Voted Worst Celebrity Influence of 2009 Reuters

Respondents to a survey conducted by AOL's (Just So You Know) have chosen the worst celebrity influence of 2009, according the Reuters.

The winner (or loser, as the case may be): singer Miley Cyrus.

Making the results particularly interesting is the fact that the voters apparently were boys and girls between 9 and 15 years old -- Cyrus' target demographic -- who populate the Web site . No reason was given for Cyrus' poor showing.

Britney Spears and rapper Kanye West came in second and third, respectively.
