GQ is catching a lot of flak for its latest ranking of attractive women. In addition to the usual top 100 list, the magazine has also released a list detailing “The Hottest Women of the Millennium.” Featured on this new list are such stars as Monica Belluci, Freida Pinto, Ziyi Zhang and, of course, former American Idol guest star Beyonce! Why is everyone complaining about GQ’s millennium list?
Beyonce is frequently included on lists of attractive women, so it should come as no great surprise that the singer topped GQ’s Hottest Women of the Millennium ranking. In fact, GQ gave Beyonce the proud title of Miss Millennium (never mind the fact that we’re just a little over a decade into the millennium!) But the Destiny’s Child star was also accompanied by several women we don’t see on such lists too often. And the categories for these ladies were a little, well, strange. The following are just a few of the perplexing (and according to critics, offensive) categories included in the list:
This Year’s Hot Italian Chick: Monica Belluci
This Year’s Hot Indian Chick: Freida Pinto
Hottest Pregnant Sri Lankan: M.I.A
Miss 2012: Kate Upton
Spousal Hot: Michelle Obama
This Year’s Hot Chinese Chick: Ziyi Zhang
The Second Hottest Woman Of Every Year: Jennifer Aniston
Critics are wondering why women such as Freida Pinto and Ziyi Zhang were labeled by ethnicity while no mention of Armenian surfaced during Kim Kardashian’s mention. And Kim Kardashian was certainly not the only star left uncategorized — others included Marion Cotillard, Christina Hendricks and Jessica Alba.
