This isn’t about boobs, you guys. Get your minds out of the gutter.
Maxim magazine wants you to know that brains and character are just as important to its readership as boobs.
Why else would it include the Prime Minister’s wife, Lucy Turnbull, on its annual Hot 100 list?
At 19th, Turnbull is apparently “hotter” than Jesinta Campbell and Dannii Minogue, who is languishing at 65th. We’re sure she’s truly honoured.
Of course, Turnbull’s name is printed on the cover hovering somewhere over Delta Goodrem’s barely concealed right breast, but that’s probably only because Turnbull was too busy to pose for the magazine in her best specs in the boardroom of her private investment company Turnbull & Partners.
Goodrem placed number one on the list, which she has taken as the validation of her womanhood it surely must be.
She tweeted that she was “honoured” to have topped the “prestigious” list and added the hashtag #GirlPower for good measure.
“People think the Hot 100 is a bunch of amazingly good-looking women,” Maxim editor-in-chief Santi Pintado told the Daily Mail.
“But they also have to be talented, intelligent and have done something in the last 12 months that has had an impact on the industry as well as their own careers.” Oh, right.
We definitely, 100 per cent, believe that Maxim named Delta number one because of her remarkable achievements in the entertainment industry this year.
To recognise Maxim’s gallant attempt to reassure us that it values women for more than their breasts and their butts, we’ve taken the liberty of listing the top 10 ladies on Maxim’s list, and the really real reasons they were included. #feminism. #boobsareirrelevanttoMaxim.
10. Jessica Mauboy
Jess made the list last year, placing seventh, after dropping two dress sizes and posing in some swimmers.
That’s irrelevant, you guys! Jessica was chosen for this list because she is an extremely talented singer as well as a businesswoman. She’s just released her first fragrance, which is something only very fancy people like Beyonce and Kylie Minogue do, and she’s got a new album coming out.
And that is why she’s on the list.
