Katy Perry is bringing her sexy side front and center in next month's Maxim.

Showing off her body in leather, lace and a sexy leotard, the singer tells the magazine what she thinks makes a woman sexy.

"The way she presents herself and the air she has about her. You can feel her power and her confidence," says Perry. "Also, the way she uses her ability to communicate, her brain and personality. I think that's really sexy because you all know the hottest woman can be the biggest b***h, and that's not cool."

Earlier this year, Perry topped the magazine's Hot 100 list.
