Does K-Fed Deserve to Be on a List of Influential Men?

We never would have thought that a year after his split from Britney Spears, we'd still be hearing about Kevin Federline every day. While we were hoping that he would fade away, the ongoing custody battle is keeping him in the headlines and over half of you think that his frequent emergency hearings are justified. Now he's scored the cover of Details magazine's Power + Influence issue.

While Kevin's reputation has improved a lot in the past year, we're still not sure how we feel about him tying Larry Birkhead for the number 7 spot on the magazine's 50 Most Influential Men Under 45 list as "The Good Father." What do you think — does Kevin deserve to be on a list of influential men?

You know he's cracking up about this title, since he obvs had this whole planned out from the beginning! Now, he can influence a bunch of men to totally screw up women's lives!

I think Kevin IS a good father and so what if he's on the front of a magazine and trying to turn his image around? Maybe he's grown up finally after seeing that he can't rely on Britney to bring up his kids and fair play to him. Give the guy a break and let him make a career for himself in any way he can so that he can support his kids.

What in the Sam hill!! Are they serious with this one. Hel* straight down to the no darlin....this man was, is, and never will be much of anything. Boy the people that they want the younger generation to praise these days. These types of people are NOT worth looking up too for ANY reason.

"Trillions" of people are NOT in a custody battle with someone with more money and more power than they could every imagine. He's proving that the average Joe does have a fighting chance. That a father can love and want safety for his kids MORE than the mother. He may not inspire much out of you, but I'm sure his case has probably influenced many a man to go out and fight for his children...no matter WHAT the court may say...as usually the courts side with the mother, which is unfortunate. PS: A lot of you see him as some sort of parasite that latched on to Britney Spears...you know that's not true. The facts are that she went after him, she recorded their intimate moments...probably to stick the dagger further in Shar's heart. If anything, Federline is the real victim between him and Spears. He lived a quiet life, working by doing what he loved...dancing with high profile performers. She plucked him out of his zone, brought her drama to his world, but I'm supposed to feel for her....NEVER!!!

he is a big Fat Piece of Sh*t! He doesn't deserve a cover. He wouldn't even have cab fair to get to the shoot is britney didn't have to pay his lazy azz to do a whole lot of nothing. What a loser. Waste of cover space. I'd rather see the presidents dog on that cover.--- scratch that... the presendents dogs butt is a better cover.

It is disgusting a piece of crap like him attached himself to a famous person and helped play a hand in her complete meltdown. Turning around an image is nothing more than having good P.R. It's phony as heck and everyone in Hollywood knows it. He has not changed at all. He just has a good publicist. Please, it worked for Jolie, too. I hope a building falls on him. The courts are concerned with Brit's kids and keep shuffling things around them. They seem to not understand that before Brit can be a good mother again, she needs help first. They are not treating the right problem. It is important for her to heal herself before she can truly care for others.

I wouldn't call a father attempting to keep his kids away from their erractically behaving mother influential, just good sense.

NOW there is no doubt in my mind that the entire world has lost their marbles. KEVIN FEDERLINE is no influence. Unless of course you strive to be a money grubbing toad. I am sooooo mad that people are even giving him the time of day. Just because Britney has jacked up her life does NOT make Kevin a good father. I'll say it again, need we all a reminder that he has 2 illegitimate children from a previous relationship? That I'm sure Britney takes care of financially. Did these people forget that he left his pregnant girlfriend to knock up and marry Britney Spears? He's no different then all the other scumbag Dads of the world, its just that his Sugar/Baby Mama drama is played out in front of the entire world. I bet part of the reason he takes such care of Sean and Jayden is for the finical kick back. I dont remeber him fighting for custody of his other 2 kids... I AM SOOOO SICK OF KEVIN.

Ok, if you're a good dad, that's cool. but what does Kevin do? he's not an actor; ie movies (with lead roles), or a sitcom he doesn't have an album out he isn't even doing what the other celebs that are famous for being famous are doing: no clothing line that is doing good no cologne or perfume no line of rims (atleast Kim Kardashian put her 15 mins of fame to work) he doesn't have a reality show displaying how great he is. so why is he on the list/cover???? as much as i am not into Paris Hilton,I rather have seen her on the cover. this is a publicity stunt By DETAILS to sell mags and draw attention. and his attorney is on a make-kevin-a-saint campaign. i think i'm gonna go out, sleep with a D-List celeb, make a sex tape, and cash in on this game. it seems alot easier than me going to college!
