TAYLOR SWIFT: Most Influential to Kids

Taylor Swift tops a list of celebrities who most influenced kids in 2013. The poll of students at a Long Island, New York school voted Taylor tops for staying true to herself and her beliefs. 

Miley Cyrus made the list too--but for a completely different reason. Students cited Miley's outrageous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards last year as an example of what not to do to prove that you've grown up.

Also on the list is Malala Yousafzai, the Pakastani teenager who was shot in the head by the Taliban while fighting for women's rights to education.
