Who would have thought, Katy Perry has been voted the "hottest woman of the year" by men's magazine Maxim.

Perry, 25, is your typical girl next door. Dark hair, bright eyes and an nice figure but in my opinion she is no Megan Fox (last years winner and this year voted number five) or Bar Refaeli (voted number 19).

But obviously men's opinions differ to mine and the "I Kissed a Girl" songstress is it this year.

This is why Maxim has her on the top- “She’s the best friend you suddenly realize you’ve loved your whole life. The rad chick who taught you to skateboard and whistle and also looks unbelievable in a bikini.”

Perry beats Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Brooklyn Decker and “Avatar” star Zoe Saldana, who place second and third respectively.
