TIME Magazine put out their “Most Influential Icon” (of the last decade) list out and take the #2 spot is Lady Gaga, with Barack Obama right behind her. The #1 Most Influential person is politician Aung San Suu Kyi.
It would help to know what their criteria is and what they consider “influential.” In terms of pop culture, music, and fashion, yeah Lady Gaga is definitely more influential than the President of the United States. They say it’s by who has “had the most impact on our world over the last decade.” Oh, okay, thanks for the specificities.
It’s worth mentioning that TIME didn’t exactly choose these on their own. They came up with a list of people they deemed influential and then asked the public to vote. So that explains a lot. She has a lot of fans who really love her, and she loves them right back.
And hey, it could be worse. At least they didn’t include Bieber this time.

It’s no surprise that the Sexiest Man Alive recognizes the sexiness of the Sexiest Man Alive who came before him, George Clooney. So let’s all just take a deep breath as we listen to Channing Tatum joke about how he would most definitely have sweaty man sex with the Silver Fox, shall we?
From The Sun:
“I’ve spent time with George Clooney and he’s the most interesting man on the planet.
He can do it all. Yep, I guess what I’m saying is I’d have sex with him.”
Fair enough, dude. Some hotness translates into all bodily languages, if you feel me, and I think George qualifies here. I don’t think I’ve ever run into a person – male or female, gay or straight – that doesn’t think George Clooney is good looking. That doesn’t mean they’re all attracted to him, but they can acknowledge a handsome face when they see one. Though I have to say, I hope Channing isn’t wanting to settle down – George would never put a ring on it.

George Clooney may or may not have called it quits with his latest conquest Stacy Keibler, but it’s not looking good for the pair. If there’s one thing all humans know by now, it’s that the Silver Fox will never settle down and put a ring on it. There’s nothing you can to do change a bro who feels that way, and there’s no “right woman” that’s going to change his mind. According to a new story from The Sun (via DigitalSpy), however, all of this came as a surprise to Stacy, who only just realised she wasn’t going to be walking down the aisle and popping out any mini Clooneys anytime soon.
“They knew it was never going to end in marriage or babies and Stacy does want kids and a husband in the next few years,” The Sun reports the source as saying.
Clooney eased the blow of the break-up by purchasing an apartment for Keibler and lavishing her with expensive jewels, according to the informant.
Really? He broke up with her by… buying her jewellery and a new place to live? Huh. If only that was standard break-up treatment! Who knows if any of this is true, but to give Stacy some credit here, it’s shit that once again the press makes it the woman’s issue – she so desperately wants a wedding ring and babies that she just can’t bear to stay with him anymore, because how else can a lady find fulfillment these days without belonging to a man and having his offspring? Who knows, maybe she did want that, but unless he found her under a rock, something tells me she wasn’t clueless about George’s refusal to “settle down”.

Bill Murray, Matt Damon, John Goodman, and George Clooney had the silveriest foxiest night about town. Just a group of four chill bros. At first glance, really just looks like a group of dads. But look again! It’s a quirky film director’s dream team!
The legit foursome are shooting a film in Berlin titled The Monuments Men. Here’s a short description of the film from IMDB: “In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.” Yes, what better roles for John Goodman, Bill Murray, George Clooney, and Matt Damon than badass art historians and museum curators?
Clooney I hope that mustache is essential to the plot.
Mad props to The Daily Mail for the photos and for also describing to the last detail what each man is wearing.
Check out the rest of the photos. Also some random dude is there at one point. No idea who it is.

George Clooney has made much of his career during the past decade or so by being a silver fox. Ladies love that salt ‘n’ pepper hair and sparkling smile, and he’s an average actor with pretty good personal politics, so what’s not to love? Well, here’s something ol’ Georgie himself doesn’t love: gray hair… which he’s apparently only just noticing he has, since deciding to grow a beard.
From E! News:
“I was a little surprised how gray it was when it come out,” he told me on the red carpet yesterday. “It came out and it’s gray! You’re like, ‘What the hell happened? I was young once but now I’m old.’”
I mean, I know he was technically joking – and of course thirsty ass Stacy Kiebler cut in on the convo to say how much she loves his hair – but bro… you’ve been gray for years. I don’t remember seeing him with any other shade, except maybe a grayish brown in like, 1990. Also, he’s 51 – even the golden Adonis must fall prey to the elements… or whatever. I doubt it’ll put a dent in his popularity with the ladies.

George Clooney has been arrested in Washington, D.C. during a protest over the Sudan crisis.
Clooney was leading a protest in front of the Sudanese embassy in D.C. when he was hauled away by secret service agents.
Clooney’s publicist Stan Rosenfield tells TMZ, “They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.”
Sources connected with George tell us he feels good about the arrest because it puts the spotlight on the crisis.
We’re told a dozen people got arrested including congressmen, leaders of the human rights community, Sudanese citizens, and George’s father … Nick Clooney.
TMZ updated the story a few minutes later, saying that Georgie was arrested for crossing a police line:
Clooney was arrested for crossing a police line … which is a misdemeanor offense.
Clooney was arrested by the uniformed division of the U.S. Secret Service … but he’s currently being booked into a D.C. police station.
I guess you aren’t a hip, humanitarian celebrity unless you get arrested for protesting something humanitarian-related and … I don’t know, foreign.
No, I’m kidding. I agree with a lot of what Clooney and others have been peddling about the Sudanese offenses, because I really think we should all be taking care of one another – and that includes all of our international friends, too – but … meh. I’m just not one of those protesting types. And there was a Mitch Hedberg joke I once heard that pretty much sums the way I feel up entirely: “I’m against picketing, but I don’t know how to show it.” Smooth, right?
