Miley Cyrus and former basketball star Dennis Rodman have been named two of the Least Influential Celebrities of 2013 by GQ magazine.

Editors at the U.S publication have compiled a list of the 25 stars who they believe are uninspiring to the general public, noting that this year “has been a bad year for impotent megalomaniacs.”

In the shameful number one spot on the list is the ex-basketball player, who has garnered attention for his controversial friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Editors call Rodman 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.”

Embattled U.S. chef Paula Deen comes in at number two following her racial slur controversy this summer, and American politician Anthony Weiner rounds out the top three thanks to his ‘sexting’ scandal.

Meanwhile, pop star Cyrus, who turned 21 years old on Saturday, ranks sixth on the list for her provocative and racy performances over the past few months.

The magazine states, “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.”

Also making the list are Will Smith and his family, Justin Bieber, Ryan Reynolds and U.S. President Barack Obama at number 17.
