Taylor Swift tops 2015 Maxim Hot 100

TAYLOR Swift has topped the 2015 Maxim Hot 100 list.

The 'Bad Blood' singer - who made her rumoured relationship with British DJ Calvin Harris public at the Billboard Music Awards on the weekend - has claimed the top spot on the magazine's "Hot List", which will be released in the upcoming June/July issue.

She said: "It's really nice and such an honour. This year has been my favourite 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 I dreamed of putting it out. Every one of these kinds of whims and ideas came to fruition ... It really feels like a wonderful celebration of my favourite year."

The announcement comes as Maxim reveals this year will mark a significant change in the long running list as instead of ranking the celebrated women, they will instead be organised into categories such as "Women Who Rock" and "Fashion Phenoms" based on their careers.
