Want to know how Miley Cyrus snagged the number one spot on Maxim's "Hot 100" list?
Well according to the mag's editor, Patrick Carone, Miley came out on top fair and square.
"We went for Miley for a variety of reasons. First and foremost the Hot 100 over the last few years, actually specifically the last two years, we've actually had voting online and so we've put a bunch of women we think would be contenders on Maxim.com and we just have our readers go online and vote. Miley just annihilated it," he said.
Why does he think so many people think she's hot?
"She's young and she has her whole career ahead of her and I think really the thing with Miley that we love so much is she's a global, international force. Like she's the kind of person who cuts her hair and it's literally news in Japan and India. Everyone is fascinated by her love life. We've grown up with her. We've seen her turn from kind of a young girl into this beautiful woman and we really can't get 'Party in the U.S.A' out of our heads."
Miley wasn't the only young celeb on the "Hot 100" list. Selena Gomez almost beat her but ended up grabbing the number two slot!
