Achy breaky hot: Miley Cyrus tops Maxim's Hot 100 list

Miley Cyrus spoiled her own news last week: The singer and actress was named No.1 on the Maxim Magazine's 2013 Hot 100 list of beautiful women, and she just couldn't keep the news secret.

Miley Cyrus tops Maxim's Hot 100 list.

Cyrus tweeted on May 3, "Didn't know this was coming out yet! I'm so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100!" Whoops, turns out the magazine, and the news, wasn't out yet. But the news was true anyway, and the issue will be on newsstands May 21.

Readers vote for the 100 women, and Cyrus, No. 68 last year, moved up to the top spot this time.

Football player Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend also made the list.

She's followed by Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Mila Kunis, and Jennifer Lawrence rounding out the top five.

There are some surprises on the list. TODAY show fourth-hour anchor Hoda Kotb is No.79 -- Maxim's editor came by the program to present her with a sash and bouquet.

And also on the list was "Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend," honoring the hoax that made headlines nationally for the Notre Dame football player. The photo for her was a bikini hanging in thin air, as if on an invisible woman.
