Katy Perry the 'Hottest' Woman

Maxim has released its annual “Hot 100” list—but its No. 1 woman comes as a surprise. Katy Perry was named the most attractive woman in the 100-person feature, though Selita Ebanks is pictured on the magazine’s cover. “It’s that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to be the best looking and a pretty good skateboarder, too,” Joe Levy, Maxim’s editor in chief, told ABC News. “All of a sudden, your crush goes supernova, and this is Katy’s supernova moment.” Also on the list is Zoe Saldana (No. 3), Blake Lively (No. 4), and Megan Fox (No. 5). Conspicuously absent this year is Jennifer Aniston.
