Kim Kardashian is on the cover of Forbes. Now she’s boasting about her success with a message to her haters.

On Monday, the magazine unveiled its new issue, which features a photo of Kardashian with a small smirk and her arms crossed. The star was chosen to represent “the new mobile moguls,” celebrities who have made serious money off apps. The feature coincides with the outlet’s annual list of the highest-paid celebs, on which Kardashian is ranked number 42.

She earned $51 million over the last year, and Forbes notes that nearly half of her earnings are from “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.” It’s all quite the accomplishment for someone whose career is largely attributed to a sex tape. But Kardashian clearly wants everyone to know all she’s achieved since then.

“Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen & know my Dad would be proud,” she tweeted. But more pointedly, Kardashian added, “#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent.” With that one, the reality star included the eye-hearts emoji, as well as the emoticon with the tongue sticking out.

And she’s not the only one celebrating. Sister Khloe Kardashian also tweeted the new Forbes cover, writing, “Congratulations Keeks!!! So proud of you!! All praise to the most high!” As Gossip Cop reported earlier, though she isn’t on the cover, Taylor Swift was named the highest-paid celebrity of all.
