This did not come as a surprise, but seriously do we need an online poll for this? Or, was the online poll needed in order to get the statistics on just how many people share the same opinion that Paris Hilton is the Worst Celebrity Role Model?
Well, there were a number of “notorious” celebrities to choose from, so maybe the online poll was indeed necessary to declare a winner.
Anyway, just as expected Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan were among the top two contenders and it was a toss-up as to who gets the highest (dis)honor. Fortunately, or unfortunately, for Lindsay Lohan, Paris was hogging the news last month for her house break-in story and arrest for cocaine possession that her (Lindsay’s) own personal debacles have been overshadowed. Add to this Paris’ World Cup marijuana possession “misunderstanding” (thanks to good friend Jennifer Rovero for declaring that the weed was hers) and she was all set to win top prize.
Hence, Lindsay was a poor second, getting only 23% of the votes while Paris got a whopping 43%.
Sharing top honors were Chris Brown with and Lil Wayne. If I had my way, I would add Heidi Montag to the top three. Getting all those cosmetic enhancements is not sending the correct message to the youth and to every one else – Looks fade. They are not the end all and be all of a person’s existence.
