(Newser) – Dennis Rodman certainly thinks he's influential, but GQ disagrees. The basketball star and self-styled North Korea ambassador is the No. 1 entry on the magazine's annual list of the 25 Least Influential People. Rodman "was the first prominent American celebrity invited inside the nation-sized prison that is North Korea, and he did literally the least interesting thing possible with it," writes Drew Magary. The rest of the top (bottom?) 10:

  1. Paula Deen: She's proved herself to be exactly like what you probably always thought she was like.
  2. Anthony Weiner: All that public humiliation, and he didn't even have any actual, real-life sex.
  3. Justin Bieber: He's now officially too old to be peeing in buckets and making light of Anne Frank.
  4. Pope Benedict: The new pope is just way better, and nobody misses this guy.

  1. Miley Cyrus: She "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."
  2. Aaron Hernandez: Uh, star athletes who came from tough backgrounds are supposed to act like thugs, not actually be thugs.
  3. Prince George: The royal baby got a lot of attention, but when you look at him, he's pretty much just a normal baby.
  4. Angela Corey: The prosecutor in the George Zimmerman case failed us all.
  5. The Smith family: As in Will, Jada, and the kids. "In just a few years, Will Smith has gone from one of America's most beloved stars to one of its most despicable."
