Who is more of a rockstar than an actual rockstar? Well, Jose Mourinho of course. Spain's Rolling Stone Magazine named Mourinho its Rockstar of the Year for 2011, citing his "controversial message, his brazen intelligence, and above all, the provocative attitude." Also because winning anything but the Copa del Rey is apparently for nerds.
As deserving of this title as Mourinho is, it's hard not to weep for the state of rock and roll (or maybe the state of Rolling Stone) when a wealthy middle-aged sportsman known for wearing fancy suits is the Rockstar of the Year. Next year: An accountant named Bill who thinks Doctors Without Borders is sabotaging his business and once traveled to Barcelona to angrily poke a fellow accountant's secretary in the ear.
