KATY PERRY VOTED HOTTEST WOMAN ON PLANET 2013
Temecula, CA – In a story dated 12/07/12, the secondary headline read ‘the hottest bitch in town’ with the lead photo showing Katy Perry at the Trevor Awards. Though the headline didn’t refer to our local heroine, Katy Perry, who went to school here under her Christian-given last name, events have added to one extraordinary year for one extraordinary personality packed into a woman whose outward appearance is also her canvas.
Katy Perry has been named the hottest woman of 2013 just five days into the New Year. The singer bested competition from Mila Kunis to clinch top spot on a list of the 100 Hottest Women of 2013 by Men's Health magazine.
Editors at the publication cite Perry's career successes and her bounce back from the breakdown of her marriage to Russell Brand as factors in their decision to fete her with their top title, writing, “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."
Kunis came in at No. 2, while voluptuous "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks was at No. 3 and "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence at No. 4.
Jennifer Aniston took fifth spot after previously being honored with the mag's title of Sexiest Woman Of All-time.
Other honorees in the top 10 include Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie and Beyonce, while Jennifer Lopez was a lowly entry at No. 72, just one spot above pregnant British royal Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at 73. Kristen Stewart was another low entry at 89 ahead of pop superstar Lady Gaga at 93.
