A certain star has made the climb to the top of the Hot 100 list.

Miley Cyrus took to Twitter to announce that she has been given the top spot on the 2013 Maxim Hot 100 list.

The annual list of sexy ladies has yet to be fully released, so it's unknown if Miley was supposed to reveal that she's number one, or if she just couldn't wait to revel in the big news.

On May 3, 20-year-old Miley tweeted:

Along with the tweet, she included a very seductive photo of herself lying on the ground in a gold bathing suit with her hair slicked to the side. It's safe to assume that the photo will be part of the magazine's feature.

Last year's highest-ranked lady on the list was model Bar Rafaeli.

This is a huge boost for Miley, who was way down at number 68 (!) on last year's list.

This is also interesting given that FHM's own list of the year's 100 sexiest women was just released this week, and Miley was inexplicably nowhere to be found on the list. But we think getting number one on Maxim's list more than makes up for that snub.

Number one on FHM's list is Ted star Mila Kunis.

It should be no surprise that Miley is seen as being sexier than ever, particularly to anyone who saw that twerking video that she released recently. We start to perspire just thinking about that video.

So do you think Miley deserved the top spot? Or would you have picked someone else?
