It’s official: Miley Cyrus has lot touch with her fan base.

In a new AOL poll, the 16-year old singer was voted the worst celebrity influence of 2009. That’s saying A LOT, considering Jon Gosselin and Kanye West are still alive!

Cyrus – whose attire and run through a myriad of boy toys over the last few months have raise red flags – received a whopping 42% of the vote. Britney Spears and Kanye finished second and third.

Vanessa Hudgens and Shia LeBeouf somehow rounded out the top five.

“I think Miley is in an interesting space where she is trying to graduate from being Hannah Montana and a Disney channel celebrity and coming into her own and having a career beyond Disney,” said Stephanie Cohen, editor of JSYK.com, which ran the poll.

To Miley’s credit, she’s trying to turn her image around. She deleted her annoying Twitter account and recently sung to a child with cancer.

But is it too little, too late? You tell us: who is the worst celebrity influence?
