Some people – or should we say People? ―  find Gwyneth Paltrow to be the most beautiful woman on Earth. Others, apparently, get a little more excited about Miley Cyrus.

Miley just joined Instagram (why? “I was bored,” she says) and decided her first photo would be a hot shot of herself announcing that she’s #1 on Maxim’s coveted Hot 100 list. The only problem? Maxim itself hadn’t announced this, making it a liiittle awkward that Miley just declared herself the hottest female on the planet.

Maxim is gradually rolling out their hotties, with the highest ranking Danielle Fishel at #27 currently. Other notable hotties include Jessica Chastain, Girls Allison Williams, Ashley Benson, and Game of ThronesEmilia Clarke. (We approve!)

And while it’s certainly plausible that Miley tops this list, it does seem a bit curious that she was the one to reveal it. Was it a blunder? Was it supposed to be a secret? Looks that way.

Miley tweeted: “Didn't know this was coming out yet! I'm so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100!” Shortly after, she posted the photo to Instagram: “My 1st Instagram is dedicated to all my fans ❤ thank you for crowning me #1 Maxim Hot 100.”

But Maxim is playing coy about whether or not Miley’s really #1, since the official ranking don’t come out until this Thursday on The Today Show. (Kind of an odd choice for the Maxim Hot 100, no?) They’ve acknowledged Miley’s post without confirming it… though of course, she pretty much has to be #1, or this would be a major disaster for everyone.

Considering how much effort Miley’s gone to lately to be sexier and edgier than she was ever allowed to be as a Disney star, it’s no surprise to find Maxim lapping up her new image.

So what do you think? Does Miley deserve to be #1?
