Katy Perry Tops 'Maxim' Hot 100 List

The magazine make a selection that's raising eyebrows -- do you think the singer is hottest in the land?

It's official: Katy Perry is the hottest woman out there! Or at least according to Maxim, as the sexy brunette took the coveted No. 1 spot on the magazine's annual Hot 100 list.

Beating out the likes of Sports Illustrated supermodel Brooklyn Decker and Avatar actress Zoe Saldana, who came in second and third, respectively, Perry's all-around appeal is what sealed the deal for her.

"It's that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to the best looking and a pretty good skateboarder, too," Joe Levy, Maxim editor in chief, explained to ABC News, about why Perry was named No. 1. "All of a sudden, your crush goes supernova, and this is Katy's supernova moment."

While gorgeous gals like Blake Lively and Megan Fox rounded out the top 5, Levy says they just came up the tiniest bit short when compared to Perry.

"[She's] a triple -- no, quadruple -- kind of hot," Levy said of the "I Kissed a Girl" singer's quirky appeal.
