Beyonce may be People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman this year, but there are plenty of other musical beauties who appear in the magazine's new issue, on newsstands Friday.  Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson are all featured in a section called "What's the Best Compliment You've Ever Received?" in which they reveal the comments that gave them the biggest ego boost.

Katy Perry tells the magazine about her biggest compliment, which she gets fairly often.  "When I hear that 'Firework' has become someone's anthem, I feel like I'm doing the right thing," she says.

Taylor Swift also gets her ultimate compliment pretty often.  She says it's "when a fan comes up and says, 'I feel like you must have been looking in on my exact situation, because your songs fit what I was going through so perfectly.'"

Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson say their ultimate compliments have to do with the fact that they're both mothers.  Christina says it was "when my son Max looked at me and said, 'Mommy, you look so pretty.'  It was a mommy moment I will never forget."  J-Hud, meanwhile, says it was "being told I'm a good mother by my longtime friend and never gets old. It makes my day."

As for Alicia, she says, "My hairstylist once told me that he liked the way I look best when I first rolled out of bed! And no, he doesn't sleep with me!"

Finally, Rihanna says her ultimate compliment came from a beloved relative, who told her, "From the time you were young, you were such a friendly child, your warmth is contagious and I am so proud to be your grandmother."
