So much for a spoiler alert! Days after Miley Cyrus inadvertently leaked the news that she was named No.1 on Maxim's annual Hot 100 list, the magazine confirmed her place at the top of the Hollywood hottie heap.
In an exclusive Us Weekly first look, the former Disney star, 20, looks all grown-up lying on her stomach in a gold one-piece swimsuit, her short blonde hair slicked down against her head and an array of gold bangles and chains adorning her wrist and neck.
"This pixie-haired beauty brought it home for America, storming to the top spot the first week of voting and never losing command of her seat of world power," the magazine said in a press release.
"It feels amazing to be No. 1, especially because it was voted on by the fans. I have the best fans in the world!" she told the magazine of her achievement. "It's every woman's fantasy to be told she's No.1 on Maxim's Hot 100! So crazy!"
On Friday, May 3, Cyrus let the cat out of the bag early by posting the sultry photo from the magazine on both her Twitter and Instagram accounts, thanking her fans for their support. "Didn't know this was coming out yet!" she captioned the shot, hashtagging the photo with "my fans kick ass" and "dreams do come true."
The singer trumps fellow Hollywood hotties Beyonce (No.14), Rihanna (No.3), Kate Upton (No.8) and Olivia Wilde (No.16) for the top honors, bumping out last year's reigning queen Bar Refaeli off the list. Other notable list-makers include Selena Gomez (No.2), Megan Fox (No.20), and Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend (No.69).
