Respondents to a survey conducted by AOL’s JSYK.com (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.
