LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Singer Katy "I Kissed a Girl" Perry topped Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list on Monday, toppling "House" star Olivia Wilde on a roster that saw Angelina Jolie fall to No. 38.

Perry, 25, who shot to fame in 2008, was deemed by Joe Levy, editor-in-chief of the men's magazine, to be a "triple -- no quadruple -- kind of hot."

"It's that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to the best looking and a pretty good skateboarder, too," Levy said.

The U.S. singer, who had a No.1 hit with "I Kissed a Girl, is engaged to British comedian Russell Brand. She beat swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker, "Avatar" actress Zoe Saldana and "Gossip Girl" actress Blake Lively for the top spot on the mens' magazine's 2010 list.

Wilde, who plays bisexual doctor Thirteen on TV medical drama "House", was bumped from her No.1 spot last year to 20 on the new list.

Perennial favorite Angelina Jolie fell ten places to No. 38 and troubled "Mean Girls" actress Lindsay Lohan did not make the 2010 Top 100 at all this year.
