(Newser) – Katy Perry tops Maxim’s Hot 100 this year, causing a few bloggers to say, “Really?” The mag justifies its somewhat uncharacteristic choice by explaining that Perry “is the best friend you suddenly realize you’ve loved your whole life. The rad chick who taught you how to skateboard and whistle and also looks unbelievable in a bikini,” Just Jared reports. The rest of the top 10:

  1. Brooklyn Decker
  2. Zoe Saldana
  3. Blake Lively
  4. Megan Fox

  1. Rihanna
  2. Elisabetta Canalis
  3. Olivia Munn
  4. Kim Kardashian
  5. Marisa Miller
