Your lifestyle, your quirk
Paris Hilton finally got a real job! Well…sort of. The 31-year-old heiress best known for being a socialite and starting the godawful trend of toting around tiny dogs as accessories decided to try her hand at deejaying at the Pop Music Festival in São Paulo, Brazil, last weekend.
Beginning her record-spinning side career on a very high note, Paris deejayed for approximately 30,000 people for an hour. True to her reputation, she performed her set scantily clad in a black corset decorated with colored jewels in front, long back gloves, and heels.
She also did her best to win over the crowd, which The Mirror reported booed her, by saying, “I’ve partied all around the world … to the best parties … but I’ve never seen anyone party like you guys do in Brazil.”
Paris’ debut followed performances by Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Clarkson. Paris played safe dance club-style music like Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and, of course, she utilized her power to make the crowd endure her own latest single “Last Night.”
"I had so much fun deejaying at the Pop Music Festival," Paris told E!. "I could not have been happier with the crowd's reaction to my set. It felt so good to be in control of the party and see everyone dancing!"
And that quote right there likely explains why Paris wanted to try deejaying. It wasn’t enough to just attend all of the parties; she wanted to be in control of them. A natural desire from a 31-year-old who has likely never been told “no” in her life – unless she has applied for a real job covertly at some point.
To her credit, Paris did put some thought and effort into learning the deejay trade.
"Recently I have been working in the studio with DJ Poet, who produces and deejays for the Black-Eyed Peas," she shared.
"I also spent the last year traveling to different shows around the world with Afrojack," Paris continued. "This was a great experience, to watch how he engages the crowd and creates great energy at these parties."
Although she apparently had a great time, it doesn’t sound like Paris is planning to make a full-time career switch.
"My brand and stores and products will always be my business and that won't change, but music is my personal passion," she says. "Being a DJ, you get to create the party and bring happiness to so many people with your music. For me this is something I am very excited about."
