While many of us look up to influential stars as inspirations in some ways, we don’t want to follow in the footsteps of certain celebrity train wrecks. These tainted talents definitely prove that money, stardom and adoration don’t always amount to happiness. Some of these people seemed to be admirable role models at the start of their careers, but somehow fame, fortune and bad decisions corrupted them into downward spirals. If you’re in the habit of following famous folks’ lives, you’d best not look up to these ones.
1. Miley Cyrus
During her Hannah Montana days, Miley was a great role model for a generation of tweens. However, since she broke free from the Disney shackles, she’s been anything but. The consummate twerker, tongue wagger and unabashed exhibitionist will apparently do anything to get attention. The girl can sing, so we wish she wouldn’t go to such extremes to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.
