Maxim Magazine has launched its annual "Hot 100" list, and pop singer Katy Perry ended up at the top of the list, and head of such notable bombshells as Brooklyn Decker and last year’s winner, Olivia Wild. Maxim dubs its Hot 100 as "The definitive list of the world’s most beautiful women," though it should be pointed out that the list is entirely taken from celebrities and not the girls next door who may, in fact, be much more attractive. It has been noted as a list of actresses, models, reality television stars, girlfriends of famous men and singers.
Maxim Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy called Perry’s perch atop the list a "supernova moment" and noted that the singer’s appeal goes well beyond her looks. Said Levy, "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 skateboard too." Asked about the selection process, Levy said (tongue in cheek), "The Maxim Hot 100 is a highly scientific selection process involving a hermetically sealed laboratory and blood pressure monitoring devices. But we’ve had to junk all the equipment, because the editors serving as test subjects busted it when someone brought a picture of Katy Perry in the room."
Now, that’s just weird. Nothing against Perry, but there are certainly more attractive women out there. It’s almost as though Levy is Perry’s agent or something…we’ll have to look more into that. Some of the more attractive women who fell behind Perry included Scarlett Johansson at *14, Angelina Jolie at *38, Megan Fox at *5 and last year’s winner, Olivia Wilde, at *20
