By Akul Sharma | 2 years ago

Miley Cyrus seems to have ruined her image among the conscious, responsible parents. 78% of British parents consider Miley Cyrus a bad influence and don’t want their kids to be influenced by her.

A study was conducted by vouchercloud.com and more than 2000 British parents with kids aged 10 or below voted for celebrity role models for their kids. 78% people think Miley Cyrus is a bad influence and more than 50% want kids to stay away from Nicki Minaj to avoid bad influence. Following these two was controversy queen Kim Kardashian who received 34 percent votes as a bad influence which is pretty evident by her social media posts. “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart finished fourth with 36 percent votes and singer Rihanna followed closely with 34 percent, probably because of her constant feud with Chris Brown.

For bad male celebrities, rapper Kanye West topped the list with 56 per cent. Kim Kardashian’s beau, Kanye has seen his share of controversies. Much dissed singer Justin Bieber finished second with a not so distant 55 per cent. Once maintaining a clean and innocent image, MailOnline thinks, Bieber has ruined it all in the last two years. Vandalism, assault, bad driving, drugs, you name it.

Former One-Directioner Zayn Malik was third on the list with 41 per cent votes. Actor Shia LaBeouf came fourth in the list of male celebrities British parents want their kids to avoid getting inspired from. Reality star Joey Essex finished fifth.

Now, talking about positive influences, British parents were clear on their priorities again. 34 per cent of the parents want their kids to look up to Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, especially for her enigmatic fashion sense and her charity work. She was followed by actress and model Michelle Keegan at 32 per cent and pop idol as well as a philanthropist, Taylor Swift who got 27 per cent of the votes. It’s no surprise that Angelina Jolie also appeared on the list.

Musicians Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles, racer Lewis Hamilton, comedian James Corden and singer Justin Timberlake topped the list for male celebrities whom parents consider as positive influence on their kids.
