Lea Voted #11 On 2012 AfterEllen Hot 100 List

11. Lea Michele

When our iPods are on shuffle, every other song is sung by Lea Michele.

Prepare yourselves for the 100 hottest women on Earth!

This year in our sixth annual Hot 100 reader poll, over 170,000 votes were cast by our readers for over 1,700 different women. We tallied the votes and ranked the top 100 vote-getters.

What’s so interesting every year is how perceived hotness fluctuates. TV actresses always make a strong showing, so much that they even stick around when their show goes off the air. But where The L Word and Skins actresses used to reign, now Glee, Lip Service, Lost Girl and even the women of web series cut in to give them some stiff competition.

The movie star types and out lesbian/bisexual women we love are fairly consistent. It’s hard to imagine a year when some of them wouldn’t make the list, especially those that have taken the top honor in a previous year. About one quarter of the this year’s list are out women and, interestingly, all of the musicians who made the list are part of that stat. Most of the actors, however, have played a lesbian or bisexual role at some point in their career, with a few notable exceptions. (You guys don’t discriminate! And there’s always hope.)

Overall, the commonality seems to be women with an edge. There are no cookie-cutter types on our list. Sure, some might have girl-next-door looks, but they aren’t interested in taking the easy way, whatever their paths might be. Whether it’s just living life as an out celebrity or taking roles that challenge the status quo, readers celebrate women who are more than just aesthetically pleasing. We hope even if your top pick didn’t make it this year, you can at least be proud to be part of something that is more substantive than Maxim’s Hot 100, which is why this whole thing began in the first place. We wanted something more; you wanted something more. And here is 2012′s Hot 100, according to you.

Women’s Health: 2012 Best Summer Bodies

3. Lea Michele, Actress

Lea stays in shape by tackling the trails in picturesque Runyon Canyon—a 15-minute drive from her apartment—and working out with L.A. health counselor Devon Butler. “We do a lot of yoga during red-carpet season,” says Butler. “Lea has so much attention on her, and this is so calming.” Lea especially likes Bikram, poses and breathing exercises done in a heated studio for deeper stretching and stress relief.

‘Maxim’ Proves It’s Hot to Love Animals

If being on Maxim’s Hot 100 list is verifiable proof of hotness (and, of course, it is), these lovely lasses are steaming:

14. Lea Michele: Lovely Lea Michele is a triple threat: She sings, she acts, and she advocates for animals. From her vegetarian diet to her refusal to wear fur to her rescued animals to her campaign to get horse-drawn carriages out of New York, Lea always hits a beautiful note for animals.

Billboard Weekly Chart Notes: Adam Lambert, ‘Glee,’ Karmin

Fox’s primetime musical juggernaut, “Glee,” adds to the network’s top 10 haul on the Billboard 200, as “Glee: The Music: Season Three: The Graduation Album” begins at No. 8. The set includes songs leading up to this past Tuesday’s third season finale, in which Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) was accepted to “NYADA,” aka, the “New York Academy of Dramatic Arts.”

The album marks the series’ 13th Billboard 200 top 10 among 13 studio compilations. Since it first reached the top tier (No. 4) with “Glee: Season One: The Music Volume One” the week of Nov. 21, 2009, the cast boasts more than twice as many top 10s as the next closest act. Justin Bieber ranks second with five top 10 sets in that span.

Lea Michele called favorite Glee diva. Mercedes’ recent diva tantrum on Glee inspired us to ask readers which character on the show deserves the title of ultimate diva character. The votes are in, and Rachel (Lea Michele) takes the crown with 30% of votes. The talented singer has made no secret of her diva ambitions as she frequently performs the songs of idols including Patti LuPone, Barbra Streisand, Idina Menzel and Celine Dion.

The runner-up spot goes to Mercedes (Amber Riley), with 19% of votes. Sassy Ms. Jones has also tackled her fair share of divas on the series, including artists like Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Holliday and Christina Aguilera. She even recently performed her own original song, the very diva-sounding “Hell to the No.”

Following closely in third place is blond bombshell Brittany (Heather Morris), who pulled in 19% of votes. The former cheerleader has channeled many popular divas, including Britney Spears and Ke$ha.
