Katy Perry is number one on Maxim’s “Hottest Women” list

The Costume Institute Holds American Women Gala

Really? Her? Don’t get me wrong, I do think Katy Perry is pretty, and she has a rocking body. Of all of the celebrity bodies that I think it would be awesome to have, Katy would definitely make my top ten (my number one is probably Blake Lively). Katy’s got a curvy yet athletic body, great proportions, nice legs and chest, and she looks all-natural to my eyes. But is Katy a good “number one” for Maxim’s “Hottest Women”? Not really. Of course, I’m just happy it’s not Megan Fox again. Here’s more about this year’s list:

Katy Perry has hit a high note: She’s been named No. 1 on Maxim’s 2010 Hot 100.

The 25-year-old singer – who’s engaged to Russell Brand and drops a new album this summer – is “a triple — no, quadruple — kind of hot,” Maxim Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy tells UsMagazine.com. “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. All of sudden, your crush goes supernova, and this is Katy’s supernova moment.”

Brooklyn Decker, who landed the coveted cover girl spot on this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, ranked No. 2, edging out Zoë Saldana (No. 3) and Blake Lively (No. 4). “This fiery Victoria’s Secret model makes even our female staff stop and stare,” the Maxim editor told Us.

Megan Fox, who was No. 2 last year, slipped to No. 5. The magazine still calls her “a sex symbol for the ages. Megan’s sultry looks hit every red-blooded guy right in the gut.”

Rounding out the top [10]: Rihanna, George Clooney’s Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, Olivia Munn, Kim Kardashian and model Marisa Miller.

Last year’s No. 1 girl, House star Olivia Wilde, dipped to No. 20. Wilde still managed to edge out Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel (Nos. 31 and 32, respectively) and Angelina Jolie (No. 38).

Missing from the list altogether: Jennifer Aniston.

So Blake made it to the top five. That’s good, she was my choice. Brooklyn Decker is beautiful, but does anyone else think her beauty is a little boring? Like, she looks like dozens of other models. If she wasn’t named after a borough, I wouldn’t be able to pick her out a lineup. Zoe Saldana is a lovely girl too, no complaints there. And I guess Megan Fox has some sort of contractual obligation to appear in the top five.

Now, I get that this list is for teenage boys, I really do. But in what world do teenage boys find Taylor Swift hotter than Angelina Jolie? Really? And Elisabetta Canalis…? For the love of God, who got paid off for Canalis to make it on this list?

    Katy is hot! Plus she does not hesitiate to show off her “luscious flower”. A great #1!!

    “But in what world do teenage boys find Taylor Swift hotter than Angelina Jolie? Really?”

    I don’t think a lot of teenage boys want to bang a mom of 6

  3. asiont says:

    zoe and blake are much hotter than katty who is only quite pretty

  4. JulieNewmar says:

    Good thing this one-hit-wonder has a nice rack to fall back on.

  5. ering says:

    I would agree with this if she were styled better! Her clothes are like an eighth grade girl’s fantasy, her hair always manages to look unhealthy, and her makeup is verging on Christina Aguilera territory. She does have a great body though!

  6. teri says:

    Pretty yes but Katy isn’t the hottest IMO.

  7. Kim says:

    WHAT??????????? She is so fugly!

  8. Lisa says:

    Re: Taylor Swift preference over AJ. I was curious before to see what celebrity woman it is that the men I know think are hot and/or pretty. I inquired one day about it to my husband, his friends and my guy friends. I specifically remember asking about Angelina Jolie and every one of them said that she wasn’t hot. I think she is gorgeous, but….I guess some men just don’t see it.

  9. teri says:

    Megan fox even at number 5 is too high for her. She’s really ugly without makeup and hair done up.

  10. Kim says:

    Maxim got one over on everyone! This was a joke. They know majority of men do not find her attractive at all but it gets people talking if they pick someone ugly versus the obvious attractive girls like Megan Fox or Angelina.

  11. teri says:

    Taylor S, is really really cute and pretty but again we want the faces and names of who got to vote. I’m assuming it’s just the average joe smoe who works for the magazine right?

  12. pebbles says:

    yeah, I’m with Kim……I find Katy Perry very ordinary…..looks kinda like the girl who cuts my hair. Blake Lively on the other hand, has ethereal beauty.

  13. teri says:

    I really think Jennifer Anistons time is up too. Yes she has a nice body, but not the head. Too much filler just isn’t a good look for her.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I think she’s cute and pretty, but I would never have picked her to be #1, especially over Zoe and Blake. I agree that I don’t care for her styling, it seems like she tries too hard to be quirky or whatever.

    I can’t figure out Clooney’s GF ending up in the top 10 at all. Angelina is still pretty, but seems older than she is and I kind of doubt the younger male demo sees her the same way guys did 7 or 8 years ago.
    I bet somewhere, Megan Fox is screaming and crying that someone else got it over her!

  15. Mary says:

    Katy Perry is not all that.

  16. kai says:

    I am shocked that a lot of you seem to find Blake Lively beautiful. Wow. I think she is a horseface and that nasty mole on her face is distracting. Besides, she’s only famous because she was Gretchen Mol’s replacement as Harvey Weinstein’s f*ck buddy, so that alone makes her nasty in my book. But she is still miles above Katy “Ratface” Perry, that biatch looks like Feivel from “An American Tail”!

  17. lena says:

    Oh and RIP in Lena Horne…I know this isn’t the post for this, but she was extremely beautiful and could put this top ten to shame.

  18. Messenger says:

    im not sure what demographic maxim caters to, but it would be an insult to be included in this combination of surgically enhanced/leg spreading/ classless chippies. with the exception of bar and maybe mendes these girls are those that would do anything (and anyone) for publicity. nice of maxim to make a list of them for all the players out there…

  19. teri says:

    I know Katy is probably thrilled and good for her for being chosen at number one. But I wouldn’t have picked number one.

  20. Corina says:

    lol damn Kai you really don’t like them huh? Way to use a cartoon from 20 years ago in a burn, I enjoyed it!

  21. Jeri says:

    Katey is an original, not so much the others.

  22. Scout says:

    Putting Kim K and Elisabetta on this “top 10” list results in it being NULL AND VOID! Although Kim works the “I’m just so sexy” thing all the time (and fails in my book – but I know some think she is sexy), Elisabetta looks like a man in drag! WTF?

  23. Cam says:

    yeah u’re right, she’s pretty and everything, but blake is way prettier and hotter !

  24. Lilias says:

    Taylor Swift is cute, young, and looks fairly attainable. Of course a teenage boy is going to think she’s hotter than a woman with 6 children (3 of which she birthed herself) and who looks older than she is (she’ll only be 35 this year).

    Katy Perry has a hot body but I agree that she’s rather plainfaced.

  25. Trustiva says:

    More like “Blandest Woman”. Sigh.

    I cannot describe how utterly uninteresting that woman is.

  26. Jover says:

    As kim said this list has to be a joke. THe first pic she looks like a bloated Stepford wife. I could go on fashion model directory and found hundreds of models far hotter than Katy although their aren’t media whores/celebutards. Her music is a joke and she’s not much as a live singer (when she does sing live, that is). Katy’s ppl must have something on Editor Joe Levy or else he decided to do a just-what-the-hell issue with this plain face as number 1.

  27. gen says:

    The woman is flawless. What I wouldn’t give to switch boobs with her. Now peronally wise I wouldn’t wanna be her. How she doesn’t puke every time she has sex with that fiance of hers is beyond me.

  28. J says:


  29. filthycute says:

    25? Right.

  30. Messenger says:

    J. alba’s too classy for this list, besides, I am sure the top ten pay for the “privledge” of being listed… in one way or another.

  31. Jackie says:

    They are all blah; where is the glamour? Non-existant

  32. Camille says:

    Zoe S should have been number 1, she is gorgeous.

  33. pebbles says:

    I vote for Betty White.

  34. jared says:

    OMG WHY ISNT ALBA NUMBER #1??? This is a joke all these girls that made the top 10 are a joke!! Wow their all average!! Maxim is only doing this for Publicity reasons because there is no other reason

  35. kelly says:

    @jared i agree alba is wayy hotter all those fugly girls lol seriously

  36. WOW! says:

    Blakley has wayy better body than nasty katy perry but the face theyre on the same level! Zoe is pretyy but agree with jared ALBA is the hottest woman alive! Shes all natural and classy

  37. blah says:

    the only thing katy has is her boobs! she has no hips she has a flat ass and her is omg just beyond fugly and have u seen her ever talk so not attractive

  38. Ashley says:

    Her? Seriously? She’s a Butterface. The boobs might draw you in but having the face of a 40 year old soccer mom is not the look. She better hope those boobs hold up or she’ll be in trouble.

    *EDIT* oh wait the editor really said it’s her personality that makes her hot right? I wasn’t the only one to read that? So men are starting to become like women then, they factor in the personality? Well I never. If men were like women then yes Katy Perry can go from a 5 to an 8. I can see men loving a girl who laughs at their fart jokes and can play video games with them all night.

  39. suz says:

    Seriously, all of the top 5 are “cute” AT BEST.

  40. Laura says:

    I agree with most people here: Katy Perry is ordinary looking to me. But to me Katy >>> Blake

    There is no competition. Blake got a rhinoplasty and boob job when she was barely 18. And without them, she would be completely ordinary. Not tooooo far away from Megan Fox.

    At least Katy still has her original parts.

  41. danny says:

    ALBA is always number 1 this is a joke

  42. Erin says:

    Hot! She has that “pin-up” look that is so lost with all of these Hollywood zeros nowadays…

  43. Vibius says:

    Youd honestly think that her lack of talent, and her personality would be enough to neutralize any bonus points she got for her boobs.

  44. Diva says:

    I think she’s gorgeous, witty, smart, friendly and interesting. Good on Katy!

  45. Tamz says:

    Missing from the list all together was Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon and Katherine Heigl because they make their business on being girls next door not sexy.

    Jolie’s time is up, no teenage boy wants to bang a mom of six, who looks thirty years older than her actual age.

  46. jenn says:

    I was stunned as well as the DJ when he said Katy Perry! Natural Beauties should always be up on the top ten! Katy wears sooooo much make up its gross! Megan Fox and Kim Kardashian does too! They all wear fake eyelashes as well. What happens when they wash there face off at night? They are to fake to be called beautiful! What happened to Jessica biel, Jessica Alba? They are just really pretty girls next door!

  47. weslyn says:

    i’m sorry but i think halle berry, in her forties, puts most if not all these ladies to shame

  48. ashleighlauren says:

    Seriously? I thought it was a commonly accepted fact that Katy Perry is a poor man Zooey Deschanel. Zooey is way more beautiful (and sexier). Plus, she comes across great in interviews and is very talented.
    Whereas Katy Perry is pulling the whole “I’m unique! I’m unique! Look at me, I’m unique” thing without actually be any different from other people.

  49. Alexis says:

    @ ashleighlaure…

    holy shit, I was so going to say that; “Katy Perry is a poor man’s Zooey Deschanel.”

  50. ashleighlauren says:


    Thank God! I was reading though the comments expecting someone else to say it. Then, I was worried that I was the only person who said this, and I’ve just convinced myself everyone else sees it.

    Not that’d it matter much. I still love Zooey so much and really dislike Katy Perry. It’s just nice to see someone else agreeing.

  51. Anthony says:

    Oh please, those such small tits on Perry that it’s a joke. She’s a boy when you scrape the hype and MAC force field away. She has ZERO originality either.

  52. melina says:

    Seriously, you guys, I honestly think you’d say the same things about anyone who got 1st place! And I thought this website was about smart and not lame gossip but I guess I’was wrong.
    We’ve all been complaining about the OTT beauty standards that are being promoted by the magazines. Women that are exquisitely beautiful, naturally or not! And now a men’s magazine praises the beauty of a mediocre at best (according to you)looking woman, tries to say that perfect beauty isn’t the only thing that counts and YOU ALL COMPLAIN!What the hell?!
