1. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter

Beyoncé’s smoldering Super Bowl performance brought down the house –and the lights with it! Does anyone even remember which team won the game? At just 31-years-old, the bona fide superstar has already racked up 17 Grammy Awards, a dozen MTV Video Music Awards, and her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But just in case anyone needs more proof that Beyoncé really has it all, the bestselling artist gave birth to her precious daughter last January –and still showed off her smokin’ hot bod on the cover of GQ’s “Sexiest Women Of The 21st Century” issue.

“I worked so hard during my childhood to meet this goal: By the time I was 30 years old, I could do what I want,” she told the magazine. “I’ve reached that. I feel very fortunate to be in that position. But I’ve sacrificed a lot of things, and I’ve worked harder than probably anyone I know, at least in the music industry. So I just have to remind myself that I deserve it.”

We can’t argue with that!
