Troubled pop star Justin Bieber has been named the most overexposed celebrity of 2014 in a new poll by editors at Forbes Magazine.

The “Baby” hitmaker tops the list of more than 6,600 celebrities, which has been put together using public opinion polling.

Bieber was cited as overexposed by 67 percent of the respondents, due in part to his recent legal troubles, including his DUI arrest in January.

Bieber’s inclusion on this year’s list is unusual, as it is usually dominated by reality TV stars, including Kim Kardashian, who placed second with a 61 percent rating.

Her sisters Kourtney and Khloe rank ninth and 10th, respectively, with their mother/manager Kris Jenner tying for sixth place with former Jersey Shore star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi at 55 percent.

Coming in third is actress Lindsay Lohan with 59 percent, controversial singer Miley Cyrus in fourth with 57 percent, and child TV star Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson rounds out the top five at 56 percent.
