Miley Cyrus‘ fans weren’t surprised when she told them she was hot on Twitter. (Have you seen her V magazine cover?) But they were surprised when she told them she was named No. 1 on Maxim‘s Hot 100 list… before the men’s magazine got a chance to do so themselves.
On Friday night, the former Hannah Montana star tweeted a photo of herself reclining on the beach in a revealing swimsuit and told followers, “Didn’t know this was coming out! I’m so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100! #myfanskickass #dreamsdocometrue.”
Sure, you could scoff at Cyrus’ claim that the honor is a “dream come true,” and the fact that the singer/actress leaked the news, but there’s no denying she deserves the title — the former child star has proven she’s all grown up in a series of photo shoots this year. Plus, it’s nice to see Maxim — a publication that named model Bar Rafaeli as the world’s hottest in 2012 — make an unconventional choice amongst its peers. After all, Mila Kunis — who was named Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive this year before again topping FHM‘s list this week — can’t possibly win every time.
