Take that, Taylor Swift! Katy Perry is pretty proud of herself for being dubbed the highest paid superstar by ‘Forbes’ magazine — and beating her biggest pop enemy out for the title!
Katy Perry, 30, has every reason to be excited about her latest Forbes magazine cover, in which she is declared the highest paid superstar of 2015. After all, she totally beat out some major competition in the industry, including Taylor Swift, 25, with whom she has publicly dissed in the past. She even flaunted the cover on Instagram!
No one is happier about the recent cover of Forbes than Katy Perry is — and it’s not just because she’s on it! The pop star supreme is obviously thrilled to take the top spot over some very incredible artists, not to mention her biggest industry enemy, Taylor Swift. On top of that, Katy hopes to inspire other successful women to proudly flaunt their accomplishments the way she is.
“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,” Katy captioned the cover on her official Instagram account. “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.”
But, it doesn’t end there. Katy’s message continues with, “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.” Amazing! Katy, you are definitely an inspiration and you have every reason to be proud of your hard work. Congrats!
