Dennis Rodman topped one of the least desirable end of year lists going, as GQ placed the North Korea-infatuated former NBA star at the top of their annual 'Least Influential People' list. Rodman took home the dubious honour, which was awarded to Mitt Romney last year, beating politicians, pop stars, actors and actresses to the top spot thanks to his strange connection with North Korea and its dictator Kim Jong Un.
Described as a "Q-list celebrity willing to commit borderline treason just to hang out with a dictator who himself aspires to be a Q-list celebrity," by QG (reprinted by the Associated Press), Rodman won't be letter his minute influence get in the way of continuing his self-imposed peace mission in the dictatorship as he continues to travel back and forth to the Asian nation. Rodman revealed this week that he intends on going back to North Korea for the umpteenth time next month, this time going for an exhibition basketball tour.
Disgraced celebrity chef Paula Deen took the number two spot, with her racial slurs and subsequent court case with a former employee seeing her once glittering cooking empire crumble around her. The racist restauranteur was followed closely by former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose sexting exploits returned to the news for a second time whilst he was running for the New York mayorship in July. GQ described the horny Democrat as " the saddest lecher in American politics, and that's saying something, because they're all lechers."
For her twerking antics and near-constant exposure since her suggestive MTV VMAs performance earlier this year, Miley Cyrus was designated the no. 6 spot, with GQ lamenting that the worst part of her recent run of success is the fact that so many people seem to be falling for her attention-grabbing ploys. The magazine justified her placement on the list for "basically trying every inane strategy she could think of to rile up America's few remaining pearl clutchers," noting, "what's sad is that it totally worked."
Falling pretty far down the list was President Barack Obama, who took home the no. 17 spot because "nothing gets done" under his presidency. This is something that can hardly be blamed entirely on him, although this has hardly stopped Americans for blaming everything on Obama. Also making their way on to the list was Justin Bieber, Lady GaGa, Ryan Reynolds and Will Smith.
