Over the past 12 months, Katy Perry has pulled off 124 concerts in 27 different countries around the world, making her the third-highest paid entertainer this year.
That badass accomplishment is what landed her on the cover of Forbes this month, and she's really damn proud (as she should be).
Perry took to Instagram to explain her decision to be on the cover, and reiterate that women should never be afraid to be proud of their accomplishments:
"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. 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."
And then she reminded the world that there is zero shame in being the boss 🙌 :
"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."
