Katy Perry has been named the highest earning female celebrity, topping this year's Forbes top-earning list.

Katy Perry appears on the cover of Forbes in a tuxedo jacket covered in gold dollar signs. She is thought to have earnt an eye-watering $135 million last year.

Katy is the third highest-earning celebrity in the world, followed by One Direction in the number 4 spot with a stonking $130 million. Taylor Swift is the only other female to make the top 10, coming in at number 9 with $80 million.

So how is Katy celebrating? With a Taco Bell crunch wrap supreme. She wrote on Instagram: "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. 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. Also... don't think that I didn't celebrate this moment by going straight to Taco Bell and getting my crunch wrap supreme."
