Miley Cyrus has topped an online poll about young celebrities and has been named the world's favourite teenage idol
Miley Cyrus is the world's favourite teenage idol.
The 'Hannah Montana' actress has topped an online poll about young celebrities, with almost a third of voters - 32 per cent - naming her the biggest rising star.
However, only 10 per cent of participants believe the 16-year-old singer-and-actress is a good role model.
Squeaky-clean band the Jonas Brothers finished second in the favourite idols poll with 27 per cent of votes, while former winner Britney Spears was demoted to third position.
According to the survey, fans are frustrated by the 'Womanizer' singer's turbulent personal life.
The pop princess received less than a quarter of votes and only four per cent of voters believe the mother-of-two is a positive influence.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old singer Taylor Swift - who starred alongside Miley in 'Hannah Montana: The Movie' - was named the celebrity with the most influence over adolescents.
The online questionnaire by PopEater.com - which was completed by 57,000 members - also saw the Backstreet Boys named as the greatest teen idols of the 90s, while Kirk Cameron won the award for the 80s and David Cassidy was the most popular star from the 70s.
