GQ Names The 30 Least Influential People In 2014

Clearly, GQ magazine wasn’t a fan of U2′s new album, Songs of Innocence, which automatically downloaded into every iTunes user’s library. The publication puts the Bono-fronted band on top of their annual “Least Influential List.” Every year, the glossy puts those “who took up vast clouds of oxygen, gave us back nothing of use, and probably helped accelerate the death of our planet,” on blast.

“The Tom Friedman of rock and the rest of his band collaborated with Apple to strong-arm their new album into your iTunes library without your consent. You couldn’t even delete it! Apple had to send out specific instructions for how to wipe Songs of Innocence (God, that title) off your computer. The worst part was the way both Apple and U2 treated this, like it was some kind of noble gift to The People; in fact this was a $100 million marketing campaign. Yes, $100 million to turn U2′s socially conscious dad-rock into a piece of direct mail.” – GQ

Do you agree that the Irish band belongs on top of their 2014 list? Others to earn a dishonorable mention from GQ include political mainstays President Obama and Sarah Palin, athletes and celebrities like Johnny Depp and Robin Thicke. The latter definitely earns his spot since his latest album sold an embarrassingly low amount in North America and around the world.

Not that I’m a huge Shia LaBeouf fan, but I wouldn’t have included him on the list. Especially after seeing his extremely sexy spread in Interview magazine. Check out his blurb below, along with my other favorite write-ups from GQ’s list.

Barack Obama Is Fancy In Hilarious Dub

Who knew President Obama could give lessons in physics? As per tradition, the POTUS gets down with the song of the summer thanks to brilliant YouTube user BaracksDubs.

Iggy Azalea’s smash “Fancy” gets the presidential seal of approval in his latest clip. Check out the hilarious creation below. On August 18th, Obama channels his inner Ariana Grande and tackles “Problem.” I can’t wait.

The people behind the Bad Lip Reading videos are back with another hilarious and timely creation, taking on the Presidential Inauguration that took place earlier this week. As you know, Beyonce’s lip-syncing created a lot of buzz but as I’ve mentioned before, it’s her voice anyway so who cares – sometimes that just has to happen or sometimes the people in charge make that call. Oprah even said last night that if it was Beyonce lip-syncing to Mary J. Blige’s voice, that would be another story.

Anyway, in this Bad Lip Reading video, we here another take on what Obama said as he is sworn in by Justice Roberts. For example, “I’m proud to say your momma took a Cosby sweater.” LOL! We also hear a completely different song and sound coming out of Beyonce’s mouth. She sings, “But your black dog can’t touch my behind!” Haha – Seriously, the whole portion of the video where Beyonce is singing had me laughing pretty hard.

Watch the funny video below. Can’t wait to see what they come out with next! .

During the day, Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce sang their little hearts out at President Obama’s inauguration. When it came to party time at the Presidential Inaugural Ball, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys were two big names brought in for the celebration. Even with these two music superstars, Obama’s second inauguration was much more low-key than his first one. Back in 2009, there were a whopping 10 official balls as opposed to a much more manageable two this time around.

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson performed an amazing cover of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” for the Presidential couple’s first dance. Side note: Michelle Obama wore a gorgeous Jason Wu gown during their adorable moment. When Barack danced with Michelle for his first inauguration, Beyonce serenaded them with her cover of Etta James’ classic, “At Last.” Later in the evening Alicia Keys reworked a few lyrics from her recent hit “Girl On Fire” to “Obama On Fire.” The 31-year-old singer who looked smashing in a red Michael Kors gown also incorporated Michelle’s name during the verses. Check out both performances below.

Today, President Barack Obama was sworn into office for his second term at the White House becoming the 44th US president. He was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts. His speech was about 18 minutes long and Obama really emphasized, “Our journey is not complete.”

In his speech, he explained, “This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience. A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun. America’s possibilities are limitless.” He added, “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it – so long as we seize it together.”

Kelly Clarkson sang “My Country Tis of Thee,” while Beyonce sang the National Anthem. Both powerhouse singers did a great job. In case you missed the speech or the performances, you can check them out below.

Terry Richardson certainly continues to reach new heights with the caliber of people he’s photographing in his token white background shots. Not too long ago, I shared with you the fabulous and stunning photos he took of Oprah Winfrey for Harper’s Bazaar. Now, just days after the victorious election, we have a photo shoot that he recently did with the re-elected President Barack Obama!

Although Richardson sometimes takes some pretty edgy photos, the photos with Barack were kept super classy and tasteful, showing both the serious side as well as the personable, loveable side of the President. In the series of photos, Obama takes several different poses, some with his suit jacket and some without. He also poses with Terry in one of his token “thumbs up” photos that Terry loves to do with his subjects.

Check out the pictures from the photo shoot below!

Hooray! President Barack Obama has been re-elected in a tight race against Mitt Romney and has earned four more years in the White House. He will be sworn into office privately at noon on January 20, 2013, in Washington D.C. Since Inauguration Day falls on a Sunday next year, the public inaugural ceremony will take place the next day, on January 21.

This happened because of you. Thank you,” Obama tweeted after learning the news. “We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Thank you. -bo” I will add President Barack Obama’s address after he delivers it. Mitt Romney delivered a very gracious concession speech and wished the President success in his term.

Where were you when you heard the news and what did you do to celebrate? Sound off in the comments! Congratulations, America!

Celebrities are really doing what they can with the platform they have to encourage people to vote…for Barack Obama. Just yesterday, I posted about a video that Cher and Kathy Griffin did educating voters on why voting for Mitt Romney is the worst idea ever.

In this new video, Will Ferrell says he’ll do anything to get people to vote… literally anything. He’ll eat garbage or underwear, punch himself in the face – you name it, he’ll do it. That’s how important it is that everyone votes. At the end of the video, he encourages people to vote for Barack Obama as well.

Watch the funny video below to learn what ridiculous things Ferrell says he’ll do in order to get you to vote.
