“With great power comes great responsibility.” There is no denying that with fame comes a certain obligation that some celebrities just don’t own up to. Being a public figure means that to some extent you are viewed as a role model. We live in a society that celebrates being famous for the wrong things, which is partly why this generation is so screwed up. Teenage girls are probably the most influenced demographic because they are at a stage where they are trying to discover themselves, and unfortunately our society glorifies the wrong kind of woman. Many young girls view their favorite celebrities as people they aspire to be like and I don’t think those under the spotlight realize how much power they truly have.
Although it must be hard having paparazzi chase you around, it is the job you signed up for, which is why it should not be an excuse. The following ten women are probably the ten last people you would ever want your child turning out like. Between arrests and drug abuse, these ten celebrities have been less than upstanding citizens of society and have most likely influenced many young girls to act in an unfit way. These ten celebs have no shame in their game and most of them would most likely sell their soul to increase their fame, which is nothing to be proud of.
10 Courtney Love
If you want to put it delicately, Courtney Love is a hot mess. Although it must have been hard being a widow with a young child, Love could have definitely handled herself better throughout the years. She was so out of control, her daughter, Frances Bean, doesn’t remember a time when her mother was not using drugs. Love and her daughter allegedly got into a physical altercation resulting in a restraining order on Cobain’s behalf. Although Frances Bean and Courtney Love have made amends somewhat, Love is not someone anyone should be looking up to, especially your daughter.
9 Pamela Anderson
8 Amber Rose
7 Heidi Montag
Once upon a time, Heidi Montag was a sweet and simple girl who appeared on the television show The Hills alongside her ex-bestie Lauren Conrad. The once all-American girl next door no longer looks like that sweet and simple girl that America got to know and love. Montag has undergone over ten reconstructive surgeries, changing everything from her breasts to her face. She has had so much work done that she is almost unrecognizable. She has lost a lot of her adorable charm and projects a negative image for young girls. Heidi Montag demonstrates how natural usually looks better.
6 Lindsay Lohan
For almost ten years, Lindsay Lohan has been in and out of trouble with both the press and the law. She has spent a good chunk of her life on probation, has been in and out of rehab and has been arrested for driving under the influence. Lohan has even lost movie roles due to her reputation and inability to control her excessive partying and substance abuse. Lindsay Lohan has no regard for others as well as herself; she missed a mandatory court hearing date which got her into even more trouble in the end. Her sad attempts at reviving her career have gotten her nowhere. She is the definition of a wasted talent and her behavior throughout the years is less than admirable which is why she earned a spot on this list.
5 Farrah Abraham
4 Miley Cyrus
3 Kim Kardashian
2 Amanda Bynes
This one time all-American sweetheart has officially began to look like all-American white trash. There was a time when Amanda Bynes was the cutest actress on television and then she moved her talent to the big screen and fans loved her. Bynes always seemed like she had a good head on her shoulders but in the past little while she has really gone off the deep end. Her provocative photos, obscene tweets and colorful wigs are not making her look so good. Although there was a time when she was the perfect role model for girls, now she is one of the worst and is not someone I would ever want my child admiring.
1 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is the most viewed person on Snapchat and as of now is one of the main celebrities young girls look up to. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her, however she is by far the worst role model for our youth. Kylie Jenner does not act her age, nor does she look it. She loves posting provocative videos and has caused a lot of controversy for her numerous cosmetic surgeries. Kylie has also been in the spotlight for dating Tyga who is much older than her. If Kylie wants to truly be a role model for girls, she needs to clean her act up and start putting her focus on energy into something the world can look up to.
