Miley Cyrus catapulted herself to a different level of fame altogether through her numerous publicity-seeking antics in 2013. The 'Wrecking Ball' singer was able to quadruple her fan following, thanks to the aggressive social media that tweeted and posted about her twerking and toking. However, in spite of having a wide-reaching influence, GQ Magazine listed her among the 25 Least Influential People of 2013.
According to a report in E! Online, the magazine writes, "Miley spent the entire year foam-finger-blasting herself, licking sledgehammers, and basically trying every inane strategy she could think of to rile up America's few remaining pearl clutchers. What's sad is that it totally worked."
The magazine also labeled Justin Bieber, one of the world's top-selling musical acts, just as unimportant when it comes to public impact.
"When you're a just-legal megastar raising hell and being a brat, people will still give you a chance," the magazine claims. "They'll blame the money and the fame and probably your parents. But once you lose the baby fat, there are no viable excuses. You are officially just a little s--t for pissing in buckets and cursing out Bill Clinton and writing the exact wrong thing in the guest book at the Anne Frank house and spitting on people and having your monkey confiscated. Also, he dresses like a blind magician."
Their scornful review of Bieber doesn't stop there: "One sign Bieber is no longer a cute pop star: He lost a PR war with the Germans, who confiscated his pet monkey," the report states.
Other stars who made the magazine's Least Influential list include Lady Gaga, Ryan Reynolds, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder, Alex Rodriguez, Tim Tebow, Will Smith and his family, royal baby Prince George, Anthony Weiner, Paula Deen, Donald Trump and Dennis Rodman (on number one).
Also another 'fairly known' personality who made their list of the least influential people in the world is President Barack Obama.
"He can blame Republicans in Congress all he likes and get away with it because congressional Republicans are the worst," GQ argues. "But the fact remains that I have spent the majority of this man's presidency watching bad things happen, then hearing a thoughtful speech about how we gotta make sure the bad things never happen again, and then watching as nothing gets done. Next time there's an election, I want Nate Silver to analyze the data and tell me who to vote for so that I don't end up casting my ballot for a very eloquent hat stand."
