ROME, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- The Italian edition of Rolling Stone magazine has declared 73-year-old Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi its Rock Star of the Year.

"His lust for life and his inimitable lifestyle have earned him an incredible international popularity, especially this year," states a quote on the cover of the current issue of Italian Rolling Stone, ANSA reported.

U.S. President Barack Obama was No. 2 in the magazine's in-house poll, which ranked those who best represent rock 'n' roll values.

Pope Benedict XVI, whose new album of chants will be released this month on Nirvana's former record label, was No. 3, ANSA said.
