Katy Perry has been named Billboard’s “Woman of the Year.” Not only does the singer grace the latest issue of Billboard, but she was also honored at a special luncheon in New York City.

Perry joked, “I’d thought my year was over, that it was time to pass the baton. But I guess I get to hold onto it until the end of the year [laughs]. It’s truly a lovely compliment. Seeing who has been honored in the past — Beyonce, Taylor Swift and others — I’m in good company.”

Just don’t call Perry a role model. “I’d like to change the phrase ‘role model’ to ‘inspiration.’ ‘Role model’ puts you on a pedestal that no one can really live up to. For me, aspiring to be an artist at a young age, I didn’t think about being a role model. But I definitely thought about being an inspiration. So I hope that I am an inspiration, especially with my work ethic and my ability to overcome obstacles.”
