Katy Perry named highest earning woman on Forbes celebrity 100


We already knew that Katy Perry is a boss, so it comes as no surprise to see that she has made the cover of Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100.

At $135 million, Perry is the highest-earning woman on this year’s list, which measures the earnings of the world’s highest-paid stars over the past year. As the highest-ranking woman on the list, Perry made the cover.

According to Perry, many women have turned down the cover in the past. “Before accepting the offer to be on the cover of Forbes, I was told that a lot of women have previously shied away from doing it.”

Perry wrote on Instagram; “I wondered if it was because they thought socially it would look like they were flaunting or bragging or it wasn’t a humble decision. Ladies, there is a difference between being humble and working hard to see the fruits of your labor blossom, and your dreams realized. Hopefully this cover can be an inspiration to women out there that it’s okay to be proud of hard earned success and that there is no shame in being a boss.

And Perry is definitely celebrating this big moment in the right way: “Don’t think that I didn’t celebrate this moment by going straight to Taco Bell and getting my crunch wrap supreme.”
