Taylor Swift Named Number 1 On Maxim Hot 100 List 2015

Seems like Taylor Swift is on a winning streak. After the 25-year-old won eight out of her 14 nominations at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night, the ‘Bad Blood’ singer woke up to the news that Maxim magazine has named her number one on its annual Maxim Hot 100 list 2015 – for the first time ever! The pop star graces the cover of Maxim’s June issue in a very unglamorous look, revealing her natural beauty with very little makeup.

Talking about topping the Maxim Hot 100 List 2015, Taylor Swift admitted,

“It’s really nice and such an incredible compliment. This year has been my favorite year of my life so far. I got to make an album exactly the way I wanted to make it. I got to put it out exactly the way that I dreamed of putting it out. Every one of these kinds of whims and ideas came to fruition. The videos – I’m proud of those, I’m proud of the tour, I’m proud of the way this has all happened. In the midst of all that, this is really nice.”

Further, she added,

“It really feels like a wonderful celebration of my favorite year.”

The ‘Blank Space’ singer follows in the footsteps of Candice Swanepoel (2014), Miley Cyrus (2013), Bar Refaeli (2012), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (2011), Katy Perry (2010), Olivia Wilde (2009), Marisa Miller (2008), Lindsay Lohan (2007), Eva Longoria (2006 and 2005), Jessica Simpson (2004), Christina Aguilera (2003), Jennifer Garner (2002), Jessica Alba (2001), and Estella Warren (2000).

Maxim magazine named the 25-year-old hitmaker not only number one on its annual Hot List, but also named her ‘the most talented woman alive.’ Swift also touched upon her relationship with feminism.

“I think that when I used to say, ‘Oh, feminism’s not really on my radar,’ it was because when I was just seen as a kid, I wasn’t as threatening. I didn’t see myself being held back until I was a woman,” said Swift. “To me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it’s just basically another word for equality.”

A woman after my own heart!

The ‘Shake It Off’ singer has indeed had an awesome year – she’s gotten to hang out with her beloved cats, throw an awesome birthday party for her best friend, she looked badass in her latest Bad Blood music video, AND she found love in Calvin Harris.

What more could a woman ask for?

Congratulations on the winning Maxim Hot 100 List 2015, Taylor Swift!
