Men’s Health Magazine just put out their annual 100 HOTTEST WOMEN LIST and I’m pretty surprised at who scored the top spot. She’s gorgeous, but #1?? What do you think? I noted where some of our favorite Country singers ranked too. Scroll down to see who Men’s Health says is the HOTTEST HOTTIE of 2013!!!!
#59. Jana Kramer
Why you gotta/ Why you wanna/ Make me keep wanting you, country music artist Kramer croons on her debut single. We could only be so lucky.
#28. Julianne Hough
Ryan Seacrest’s main squeeze, a two-time Dancing with the Stars champ, country music singer, and star of Footloose and Rock of Ages is Mormon, and therefore bound to wear sacred garments beneath her regular wardrobe. On Mitt Romney, we find this kind of creepy. On Julianne Hough, we’re ready to pray—and give thanks.
#24. Carrie Underwood
We can think of only one hockey player that might see an upside to the NHL’s lockout: Nashville Predators defenseman Mike Fisher, if only because it means more time at home with his wife, country music star Carrie Underwood. And unlike one of Taylor Swift’s exes, it doesn’t appear Fisher’s in any danger of becoming the subject of an embittered single on an upcoming album. Underwood’s most recent effort, Blown Away, went platinum, with the eponymous single debuting at number one on the Billboard 200. Not that Underwood is one to fixate on her accolades. When she’s not touring, she’s usually devoting herself to one of several philanthropic causes—serving as a spokeswoman for the Humane Society, the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, the United Service Organization, Habitat for Humanity, and the list—somehow—goes on. The only way Underwood could be more perfect this year is if she singlehandedly negotiated the end to the NHL’s lockout herself.
#12. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift isn’t just one of the hottest women in the world, she’s also the hottest performer in music. Her last album, Red, sold 1.2 million copies in its first week. The only thing that gives us pause about the 5’11, 22-year-old stunner is the competition: Over the past year or two, she’s dated Twilight star (and Men’s Health cover guy) Taylor Lautner, Grammy award-winning musician John Mayer, Academy Award-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and as if that weren’t enough, she’s now off-and-on with a Kennedy. Those fleeting relationships haven’t always worked out (surprise), but Swift’s trick is channeling those frustrations into her music, where she’s quickly become one of the industry’s most reliable hitmakers. The next time you need inspiration, Taylor, we’ve got roughly 10 million guys willing to be your muse—and trust us, they’ll treat you much better than John and Jake.
#1. Katy Perry
How can a woman know when her breasts alone have reached pop icon status? Maybe when showing a little too much of them gets your sing-a-long with Elmo banned from Sesame Street. Luckily for men everywhere, Katy Perry had enough of a sense of humor about the whole fiasco to make jiggling her ample rack, barely contained by a tight Elmo t-shirt, the centerpiece of a sketch on Saturday Night Live that same week. Of course, Perry has more going on than newsworthy DDs: She took a bad breakup and turned it into the raw material of the year’s most successful album, Teenage Dream. Based largely on its success, she’s the only singer ever to spend more than a solid year in the top 10 of the Billboard charts. Hell, her Twitter following alone is four times the population of New York City. At only 28, she’s already been nominated for eight Grammy awards—including album of the year. Nobody, including us, could get enough of Perry this year. And for that reason, she is our sexiest woman of 2013.
