Default New Poll Shows More People Dislike Miley Cyrus

Not too surprising...

The Huffington Post reports that a new poll shows that more people dislike Miley Cyrus now, especially after her VMA performance, short haircut and engagement to Liam Hemsworth.

Celebrity DBI, an independent index that "quantifies and qualifies" consumer perceptions of 3,082 celebrities (actors, musicians, models, athletes and politicians) measured her impact in appeal, aspiration, breakthrough, endorsement, influence, trend-setter and trust. In December 2010 she was in the top 3% in influence and trend-setter and top 23% for endorsement. As of last month, She is in the bottom 1% for appeal, aspiration, breakthrough, endorsement and trust. She is also in the bottom 20% for influence and trendsetter.

Here are more statistics:

- For men and women over 55 -- only 1 percent report liking her a lot.
- In the 13-17 age group, 35 percent say they dislike her a lot.
- In the 18-24 age group, a whopping 43 percent dislike her a lot.

Among those angered by her behavior include the younger generation who grew up with her as Hannah Montana. Her teen girl audience no longer identifies her or finds her appealing or inspirational. The older demographic no longer considers her a positive role model for the youth of today. In June, over 2,400 parents named Cyrus and Chris Brown as the worst celebrity role models.

In August, Time had an article written by a mother to her daughter, who said: "This is what happens when you constantly hear everything you do is awesome. This is what happens when people fawn over your every Tweet and Instagram photo. This is what happens when no responsible adult has ever said the word 'no,' made you change your clothes before leaving the house, or never spanked your butt for deliberate defiance."
