And the votes, says Reuters, “came from the very people who made her a star, tweens and teens”.
“Cyrus, 16, took 42 percent of votes in the poll for AOL’s JSYK.com (Just So You Know) website aimed at 9-15 year-olds, pushing Britney Spears and rapper Kanye West into second and third places, respectively, in a section on worst celebrity influences of the year,” it says, going on:
“No reasons were given for the poor showing of the singer-actress and the popular star of Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” television series.
“But the ranking follows a year which has seen Cyrus controversially dating a 20 year-old model, making ‘slant eyes’ in an informal snapshot criticized as mocking Asians, and being accused of pole-dancing on a teen awards show.”
Elsewhere, the story adds, “the stars of vampire movies ‘Twilight’ and its forthcoming sequel ‘New Moon’ dominated the JSYK.com poll.”
