Miranda Cosgrove & Selena Gomez topped TV Guide‘s Teen Role Model Poll while sexpot Miley Cyrus & teen mom Bristol Palin competed for last place. For Yahoo! searchers, being a role model isn’t the top concern. The more searches on the celeb, the less likely they are to be considered a role model.
On Miley: It’s possible that this millionaire pop performer has seen more drama in her young life than most of us will ever experience. Just recently, the ‘Hannah Montana’ star broke up with her older boyfriend, showed a risqué look during her European tour, and made plans to celebrate her 18th birthday. Role model?
Well, if you’re looking to be a globetrotting, platinum-record-selling singer, then yes. But stay-in-school, straight-A student? Not so much. But of the four celebs, Miley is number one in Yahoo! searches. Look-ups for the star include ‘miley cyrus 18th birthday,’ ‘miley cyrus biography,’ ‘hannah montana miley cyrus.’
On Selena: Being anointed by Disney can be a blessing, and a curse for Selena Gomez (as ‘Mickey Mouse Show’ alum Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan can testify). The 18-year-old princess of the Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place has managed to avoid the negative press.
Not that she’s been out of the media glare: She dated Nick Jonas, after all. She has her own band to focus on, which has a second album coming out. And next year she’ll be costarring in the romantic comedy “Monte Carlo.” So far, not bad. Searches on ‘selena gomez fansite,’ ‘selena gomez wallpaper,’ and even the bilingual ‘videos de Selena Gomez’ are also big on the Web.
