Dennis Rodman is at the top of a list no-one wants to be on at all - he's been named GQ magazine's No1 least influential celebrity of 2013.

The former basketball star, who has visited North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang, was the top pick in the magazine's third annual list of the least influential celebrities, which also includes pop singer Miley Cyrus, President Barack Obama and celebrity chef Paula Deen.

GQ called 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".

Rodman, 52, said last week he is preparing to return to North Korea next month for an exhibition basketball tour.

Deen, whose cooking empire imploded this year after she admitted to having used the N-word to describe black employees, came in at No2, while former sexting Congressman Anthony Weiner took the No3 spot.

"He's the saddest lecher in American politics, and that's saying something, because they're all lechers," the magazine said.

Cyrus, who grabbed attention at this year's MTV Video Music Awards for her provocative performance with a foam finger, took the No6 spot, while Obama came in at No17 because "nothing gets done".

Other celebrities deemed non-influential include pop stars Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, and actors Ryan Reynolds and Will Smith.
