NEW YORK (CBS) Looks as if Kanye West's attention-grabbing ways have paid off. The outspoken rapper has been voted the fifth most influential man of 2010 in AskMen's annual web-based poll.
The 33-year-old Grammy-winning hip-hop star fell behind Microsoft's Bill Gates (No. 2), Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (No. 3) and Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs (No. 4) in the Top 49 Most Influential survey, which garnered more than 500,000 votes this year.
"The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart, who's holding athis weekend in Washington, D.C., nabbed the No. 1 slot.
Noticeably missing from the top of the list was President Obama. This year he ranked at No. 21, falling significantly from his No. 3 spot last year and the No. 1 position in 2008.
Also making it onto the list was rapper Jay-Z (No. 13), former Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater (No. 48), actor George Clooney (No. 18), newlywed and British funnyman Russell Brand (No. 49), and "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner (No. 20).
