Taylor Swift Tops Maxim’s 2015 Hot 100 List
Taylor Swift just keeps on winning.
Maxim announced that the 25-year-old "Bad Blood" singer is their No. 1 choice for the magazine's 2015 Hot 100 list.
"It's really nice and such an incredible compliment," Swift stated. "This year has been my favorite year of my life so far. I got to make an album exactly the way I wanted to make it. I got to put it out exactly the way that I dreamed of putting it out. Every one of these kinds of whims and ideas came to fruition. The videos-I'm proud of those, I'm proud of the tour, I'm proud of the way this has all happened. In the midst of all that, this is really nice."
She added, "It really feels like a wonderful celebration of my favorite year."
Swift just nabbed up eight Billboard awards this past Sunday, May 17. She was nominated for 14. The "Blank Space" singer also released her highly anticipated music video for "Bad Blood," which features numerous cameos from her friends.
Jessica Alba, Lily Aldridge, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, Gigi Hadid, Mariska Hargitay, Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss, Kendrick Lamar, Ellen Pompeo, Serayah, Hailee Steinfeld, Hayley Williams and Zendaya were all featured.
"Thankfully, 10 years into my career now, I've learned how to work in a smarter way. You have to have time to breathe and have a happy life, and friendships are so important to me. Thankfully- thanks to the fans-now we get to play stadiums, so we do two or three stadium shows a week," Swift said. "I'll see my friends in whichever city I'm closer to."
Previous No. 1s included Candice Swanepoel (2014), Miley Cyrus (2013), Bar Refaeli (2012), Rosie Huntington-Whitely (2011) and Katy Perry (2010). The June/July issue will hit newsstands on May 27. Read the online interview here.
