Cyrus' influence continues to fail

MILEY Cyrus has been voted the worst celebrity influence of 2010.

The 18-year-old singer-and-actress topped the poll for the second year in a row on AOL's JSYK.com (Just So You Know) - a website targeting nine to 15 year olds - taking 58 per cent of the 99,000 votes.

Although no reasons have been given for Miley receiving the dubious honour, she had a controversial 2010 after video footage showing the 'Last Song' star inhaling smoke from a bong - a filtration device usually used for smoking cannabis - was posted on the internet.

Visitors to the website slammed her for her "poor" choices with one user called Leanne saying: "Just because it is legal, doesn't mean it's good for you! Like beer, and smoking cigerettes ... Those ARE LEGAL but people die from them every day. She's just not making the right choice."

Miley beat off competition from Demi Lovato and Lindsay Lohan, who both entered rehab last year, 'Teen Mom' star Amber Portwood, Kanye West and 'Gossip Girl' star Chace Crawford who was arrested for possession of marijuana.
