Taylor Swift Covers 'Maxim,' Tops the Hot List!

Taylor Swift rocks a wet hairdo while posing for the cover of Maxim‘s new issue as the mag’s Hot List honoree.

The 25-year-old singer chatted with the mag about landing the number one spot on the list and her feminist views.

On being number one: “It’s really nice and such an incredible compliment. 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 I dreamed about 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 all happened. In the midst of all that, this is really nice. It really fells like a wonderful celebration of my favorite year.”

On becoming more vocal about feminism recently: “Honestly, I didn’t have an accurate definition of feminism when I was younger. I didn’t quite see all the ways that feminism is vital to growing up in the world we live in. I think that when I used to say, ‘Oh, feminism’s not really on my radar,’ it was because when I was just seen as a kid, I wasn’t as threatening. I didn’t see myself being held back until I was a woman. Or the double standards in headlines, the double standards in the way stories are told, the double standards in the way things are perceived. A man writing about his feelings from a vulnerable place is brave; a woman writing about her feelings from a vulnerable place is oversharing or whining. Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born. So to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it’s just basically another word for equality.”
