The 100 Least Powerful People In The World

31. Lindsay Lohan

> Once a poor imitation of Paris Hilton, now a perfect imitation of Winona Ryder.

32. Eric Mangini
> Former NFL Head Coach
> Fired this year as head coach of the Cleveland Browns, after being let go by the New York Jets in 2008.  Called by Sports Illustrated writer, Joe Posnanski, “the worst NFL head coach hire in 25 years.”

33. Guy Hands
> Investor, Businessman
> English businessman buys EMI Group. Later forced to hand it over to Citigroup after defaulting on all of his loans. His excuse? Citigroup made him pay too much.

34. Hosni Mubarak
> Former President of Egypt
> Thirty-year Egyptian strong man leaves presidency with tail between his legs. May seek asylum in Libya.

35. Chris Brown
> R&B Artist
> Was a top selling R&B performer. Spent the last two years rehabilitating his career after beating up his star girlfriend, Rhianna. May have scuttled any chances of a comeback after Good Morning America tantrum. Publicist and singer split following the incident.
