That's a low blow, GQ! The magazine recently published “The 25 Least Influential People Alive: 2011” as a complement to their "Most Influential" list and included our main man Pitbull at spot #22. Reporter Drew Magary penned the slideshow and said this about why he chose our fave Miami cubano: “Because who could be less influential than a guy whose music sounds like the aborted offspring of Nelly and Will.i.am?”
Really, Magary?! You may need to brush up on your music knowledge and take a hard look at this summer’s music charts. 30-year-old Pitbull (our June-July cover model) had a chart-topping year. “Give Me Everything” hit the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and kept clubs blazin’ all summer long. Not to mention Pitbull has collaborated with basically every single hot pop star and rapper out there. Oh, and he hosted the American Music Awards, but yeah, he hasn't had any influence this year. Well, at least he is in good company. Magary actually included President Barack Obama at spot #25 on the list as well, so clearly the guy has a few screws loose.
