Going gaga

GQ’s 2013 Men of the Year choices were nothing other than disappointing


Last night, GQ magazine revealed their annual ‘Men of the Year’ at an event at Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House. Their choices were predictable in the extreme and that they numbered Russell Brand as an “oracle” and Piers Morgan as the “TV personality” of the year about says it all.

Others on the somewhat lacklustre roster included former Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens, radio presenter Nick Grimshaw and veteran actor Michael Douglas. Two women also featured: Emma Watson, who won “woman” of the year, and Tracey Emin, who took the prize for The Serpentine Gallery’s GQ Art Award.


Amongst the great names who have died this year are Baroness Thatcher, Sir David Frost, Seamus Heaney and Alan Whicker. Surely these icons deserved a mention ahead of GQ’s most disappointing choices but with living individuals who’ve done things of note numbering Stephen Fry (for standing up to Putin’s villainous regime in Russia), Sir Alex Ferguson (who retired after a remarkable career as manager) of Manchester United and Tiger Woods (who returned to his world number one ranking in March), we must ask: “Couldn’t GQ have chosen better?”

    1. Strive for mediocrity rather than excellence is the message GQ Magazine is sending out to the young people of Britain. It is a sad state of affairs.

    2. The role models for today’s youth tend to be foul-mouthed, binge-drinking and ill-educated. And, on the whole, not worthy of their ‘celebrity.’
