It's a good week to be Taylor Swift. Eight Billboard Music Awards, high praise for her star-studded new video, "Bad Blood," fans cooing over photos of her being cuddly with adorable Scottish DJ (rumored)boyfriend Calvin Harris. And now? She's been placed at the very tippy-top of Maxim magazine's annual Hot 100 list, an honor previously held by the likes of Miley Cyrus, Bar Refaeli and Olivia Wilde. "It's really nice and such an incredible compliment," Swift says of the title.
"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." Niceness: so hot right now.
