Not to brag, but Katy Perry wants you to know she’s on the cover of Forbes.

The singer looks radiant in the cover of the magazine’s Highest-Paid Superstars 2015 issue. She posted the cover, along with an inspirational message, on her Instagram Monday night.

“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 writes. “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.”

Then Perry says hard work is something that merits holding your head up high.

“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.”

The “Roar” singer is the highest-earning woman on this year’s Forbes Celebrity 100 list, which measures the earnings of the highest-paid entertainers for the past 12 months. In fact, Perry was ranked number three out of 100 (from number 9 last year). Forbes estimates she earned $135 million last year.

During the scoring period, Perry grossed more than $2 million per city over the course of 126 shows on her Prismatic World Tour. She also pulled in $20 per head in merchandise sales, has deals with Coty, Claire’s and Covergirl, and a mobile game coming this fall to boot.

Is Katy Perry Throwing Shade at Taylor Swift?!

So, what’s Perry doing to celebrate her latest accomplishment? She’s going to Taco Bell, of course. “Don’t think that I didn’t celebrate this moment by going straight to Taco Bell and getting my crunch wrap supreme,” she said.

Mmm nothing tastes as good as success.
