Paris Hilton remains Oz girls’ top celeb role model

paris hiltonMelbourne, Oct 14 : She has a sex tape to her credit, has been a jailbird, but girls Down Under still want to be Paris Hilton – second time in a row.

The socialite has been named as one of the world''s top celebrity role models in a Cartoon Network survey of 1475 children aged seven to 14.

Kids were asked, "Who is your favourite celebrity or famous person? It could be a singer, a sportsperson, a TV star, a politician or anyone else who’s famous” with an open-ended response.

The stunner made the list for the second straight year, showing she has greater longevity as a role model than Avril Lavigne and Bindi Irwin – who made the 2007 list but dropped off in 2008, reports News. com. au

Also making the grade was fictional music act Hannah Montana, played by Miley Cyrus, as well as singers Pink, Rihanna, Delta Goodrem and Hilary Duff.

Sporting stars Buddy Franklin (AFL), Darren Lockyer (NRL) and David Beckham featured prominently and have replaced Chris Judd (AFL) and NRL runaway Sonny Bill Williams as their favourite role models.

The late Steve Irwin, World Wrestling Entertainment’s John Cena and Cartoon Network’s BEN 10 - big hits in 2007 - also retained their popularity, with Johnny Depp clinching top spot. (ANI)
