Miley Cyrus has stolen Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli’s crown as the reigning queen of Maxim’s annual Hot 100 list. The 20-year-old singer – who is engaged to Australian actor Liam Hemsworth – accidentally revealed in a Twitter post on Saturday that she’s been named the magazine’s sexiest woman of the year.
Though her admission comes weeks before the magazine had planned to officially announce the results of the competition, the former Disney star gushed that it is ‘a dream come true’ to top the compilation.
Miley tweeted: ‘Didn’t know this was coming out yet! I’m so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100! #myfanskickass #dreamsdocometrue.’ She also posted an exclusive picture of herself from the magazine’s upcoming steamy spread, in which she is laying seductively on a beach in a plunging gold swimsuit and an assortment of chain necklaces.
The Can’t Be Tamed crooner shared the same image on her new Instagram profile, and wrote: ‘My 1st Instagram is dedicated to all my fans thank you for crowning me #1 Maxim Hot 100.’
iley recently claimed she was no longer interested in stripping down for photo shoots. She told Elle magazine: ‘A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power.
‘Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that’s not just showing your t***.
‘I don’t want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it’s all about their clothes — or lack of clothes.’ The annual Maxim party celebrating the special issue dedicated to the 100 most beautiful women of the year is set to take place on May 15 in Hollywood. Maxim has yet to comment on Miley’s claims. Last year the Hannah Montana star earned a ranking of 68 on the list, falling substantially behind victor Bar Refaeli and runners-up Olivia Munn, Mila Kunis, Katy Perry and Olivia Wilde.
