Katy Perry embraces her power as a boss and entrepreneur!!!
The songbird graces the cover of the new issue of ‘Forbes’, which has named her the third highest-paid celebrity for its 2015 list. She’s runner-up to Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Perry explains her no-holds-barred approach to her career and her much deserved success… “I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” she tells the magazine. “I’m an entrepreneur… I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”
Perry is all about launching pads, and that’s how she views her first hit, “I Kissed A Girl.” She recalls, “People were talking about bisexuality a lot that year and also talking about sexuality being fluid. It was zeitgeisty. It was me taking everybody’s conversation and funneling it into a song. I also knew it had that ‘ooh, ahh’ factor. I knew I could open the most doors with that first, but I wasn’t going to let that define me.”
Similarly, Perry doesn’t want to be defined as “Katy Perry” all the time. “I like to dress up and be Katy Perry when it’s appropriate, when I’m promoting something, but I’m Katheryn Hudson on the business side.”
