Cyrus tops list of hottest women
She said: "It feels amazing to be No 1, especially because it was voted on by the fans. I have the best fans in the world.
"It's every woman's fantasy to be told she's No 1 on Maxim's Hot 100! So crazy!"
However, Miley's news hasn't come as a surprise to all of her fans after she inadvertently leaked the results of the poll herself last week.
The 20-year-old singer posted a picture from the shoot online with the hashtag "dreams do come true", sparking speculation that she had topped the Hot 100.
Former Disney star Selena was second, followed by singer Rihanna and actresses Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence.
