Madonna & Gotye Among "Least Influential People of 2012," Says "GQ" Mag

The end of the year means endless lists of the "Biggest Stars of 2012" or the "Most Important People of 2012."  GQ magazine has come up with a novel approach to the year-end list: it has compiled a roster of the "Least Influential People of 2012," and among those included are Madonna and Gotye.

In 2012, Madonna performed at the Super Bowl, scored a #1 album and had one of the year's biggest tours.  So why is she one of the "least influential people?"  GQ magazine snarks , "That cheerleading outfit isn't making you look any younger, Madge. It's time for you to stop putting out aggressively bland comeback albums and make room for Ke$ha and Katy and the other 800 female artists out there who change outfits every five minutes to distract people from their terrible singing. "

As for Gotye, GQ says ,  "Finally, this year, an outsider came along who broke the stranglehold of processed pop and became a global sensation. It's just too bad that the artist in question is a Belgian emo guy who can't handle a simple breakup with a hint of grace." 

The magazine adds, "Also, the next time you film yourself naked for a video , wash your feet. "

Others who had the dubious honor of making the list: Mitt Romney , Amanda Bynes , Adam Samberg , Billy Crystal , Michelle Obama and Lance Armstrong .
