Paris Hilton on DJing: “I’ve been training for 6-8 hours a day for a year”


We didn’t really cover the story of Paris Hilton failing her high paid job as a DJ at the Sao Paolo Music Festival last week, because, you know, it’s Paris Hilton. It has to be a slow news day for us to pay attention to her. (Eyebrow raise before the holiday.) Paris mixed an annoying set and danced in front of some videos of herself trying to look sexy while flipping her fake hair around. As Michael K at D-Listed wroteF’ing a DJ (or two, or three, or forty) does not make this skank a DJ.”

Paris has a new interview in Hello! Magazine, and she wants us to know that she’s qualified to be a DJ in own right, since she “trains” to be a DJ as much as regular people work at 9-5 jobs. I’m sure she counts every moment she listens to music as “training.” I’m picturing Paris saying this in her monotone bored baby voice and it’s cracking me the hell up:

Many DJs take their craft very seriously. How did you prepare for your debut?
“I’ve been training every day for six to eight hours for the past year. I was up until 4am most nights, and then I had to change my set when I found out that it was going to be more of a pop crowd in Brazil, rather than a dance music crowd. On the jet out, I spend the entire flight reworking the whole thing.”

Have you had any professional training?
“DJ AM taught me how to DJ with vinyl almost ten years ago. Recently, I’ve been working in the studio with DJ Poet, who produces and DJs for the Black Eyed Peas, and he has been providing me with some great tips and advice.

“I also spent the past year travelling to shows around the world with Afrojack. It was a great experience, to watch how he engages the crowd and creates great energy at his parties.

Do you see this as an opportunity to shake off misconceptions about yourself?
“I think it’s just about me sharing with the world my true passion, which is music. I also love to make people happy, and I hope they feel that way when they listen to my sets.”

You will soon be launching your 15th fragrance. What other projects do you have in the pipeline?
“I’ve just had some meetings about opening more Paris Hilton stores in India and Brazil – I have more than 50 of those shops now. I’m opening a beach club in the Philippines at the end of the year and also producing some TV shows.

“I’m still working on my handbag, shoe and eyelash collections, too. It’s never quiet.

With so many successful business ventures, is there anything else you would like to try your hand at?
“I’m always working on building my brand. Next I want to be able to do my own hotels, nightclubs and restaurants. And I want to get more into real estate, which is my family heritage.”

If you had to describe yourself in one sentence, what would you say?
“An entrepreneur who lives life to the fullest, every single day.

You mentioned that you would like to settle down and have a family. Is that on the cards in the near future?
“Every woman dreams of getting married and having a family one day, but right now I’m so busy travelling and working I wouldn’t have time for that. When that time happens, it will be fantastic, but right now I’m just happy being single and being an independent woman.”

[From Hello! Magazine, print edition, July 9, 2012]

I have to object to her last statement that “every woman dreams of getting married and having a family one day.” She’s overreaching there by a long shot.

As for Paris’ illustrious career slapping her name on stuff, getting paid to party and working super hard to be a DJ, that’s not all. She’s also coming out with another album later this year, in which she actually sings again. She tells Hello! that she “collaborated with a lot of good friends like Snoop Dogg and Flo Rida… We’ve got some really fun, electro-pop songs that will be perfect for the clubs.” Like this one?

Oh and Paris was involved in some kind of altercation with a paparazzo in a parking garage outside a club last week. There are two videos of this mess. Radar has one, where she seems to slap a photographer’s video camera out of his hand for no reason, and TMZ has a video of the aftermath, where there are a bunch of photographers and people crowded around. Paris is still grabbing on to the guy’s shirt at one point. He claims that she was “hanging off my neck like a piggy back ride as I walked up to the next garage level” and that “her friends all started attacking me.” He also of course claims injuries and is going to file a police report. Cha-ching.

Paris is shown out on 6-19 (leather dress and 80s gloves), on 6-12 (turquoise track suit), on 6-30 (big black hat) and on 6-4-12 (tan hat). Credit: WENN.com. Also, the terrible all navy blue outfit is what she wore to court on 6-4-12. Photo agency Fame says she is “embroiled in a law suit against an Italian underwear manufacture for a breach of contract on June 4th, 2012. Paris is owed over million dollars after the company when bankrupt.” Maybe they should have reconsidered making underwear for Paris Hilton.

    Ummm….training for what? The DJing Olympics. With DJing either you have it or you don’t. Sure there are technical issues to learn, but it’s all about knowing your crowd and pleasing them… And with Paris living life without any grip on reality and how most crowds perceive herI see this as a big huge fail! Plus her taste in music is crap!

  2. bobo says:

    The older she gets, the more wonky her eye gets. Not good.

  3. cupidityrox! says:

    When is she coming out with Her line of herpes medication?

  4. OhMyMy says:

    OMG…Just make it go away. FYI I donned a cheap long blonde wig from the party store and went as Paris Hilton’s Mini-Me for Halloween in 2005/2006. Six years ago. Stop talking about her.

  5. Tillie says:

    I don’t share her dream of getting married and starting a family..
    But hey, I also don’t consider myself a ‘DJ’, a ‘model’, an ‘actress’ or a ‘popstar’….

    Whoa.. come to think of it.. Paris IS really really really talented :P

  6. Fritzi Schnitzer says:

    I feel for whoever her first husband will be.

  7. lower-case deb says:

    that blue kate-middletonish get-up (second to last) ain’t half bad actually. if only it’s less color-coordinated.

    actually, come to think of it, the only reason why i sort of dig it, is because it’s unlike anything i’ve seen her wear. she looks sort of… normal.

  8. Adrien says:

    Paris would make a great Bj, I mean, Dj.

  9. Xenu says:

    She is like blast frome the past. She is so 2005. Good thing about all these media whores is that they are REPLACEABLE. Bad thing is you never know what you get instead.

  10. jody overland says:

    you should look as sexy as Paris… publish your own pic, go on, show us the truth

  11. Cleveland Girl says:

    In that last pic she literally looks like an impersonator of her own self!

  12. lassie says:

    She’s the last skank at the frat house kegger, who just won’t leave. It’s 4am. Nobody wants you. GO HOME.

  13. serena says:

    She’s turning in Linsday Lohan.
    LOL

  14. Quinn says:

    A face that would make a freight train take a dirt road. Yikes.

  15. bagladey says:

    “I’ve been training every day for six to eight hours for the past year.” Hmm, so why did so many people think she was just playing with the knobs on the DJ equipment while playing taped music? Another hmm is that Paris does not have her coy, babyish, “Paris” voice while talking on the ‘phone in the video in the parking garage with the papparazzo.

  16. Carolyn says:

    She’s awkward, swarmy and repulsively smug..

  17. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Most of her friend have grown up and moved on to other things, except for Cracken…. but is Cracken really anyone’s friend? anyway, what does this skank want to do when she grows up? Be a DJ of course. Because at 32 you’re still really fitting in with the crowd at the clubs. Ew. What a creep. She’s going to be that creepy 48 year old woman in leopard print clothing grinding on 21 year olds and doing shots while screaming “WOOOOOOOOOOOOO” after each one. Mark my words. Pathetic Hilton is a sad sad person.

  18. sarahtonin says:

    Paris programmed her iPod and pressed play, now she’s a DJ.

    Anyone notice her scratching or flicking the crossfader or whatever it was but none of that sound came out the speakers? I don’t think they plugged her in. Pre-recorded perhaps? She’s doing the DJ equivalent of lip-synching.

  19. Bronson says:

    And still, all I can ever think of when I see her is that episode of South Park: STUPID. SPOILED. WHORE.

  20. Please take a desk job if you possible can think of one you can do. You look rediculous. Your old, un-talented, boring scank.

  21. Jover says:

    Good comment xenu; when you have an intellect of a pet store hamster (not insulting hamsters), I suppose it does take 6-8 hours of intensive training to learn to distinguish among the start, stop, and play buttons.

  22. ak138 says:

    She’s working on her eyelash collection. That is priceless.

  23. skuddles says:

    Uh Parasite, the only “career” you have is famewhoring, partying, and trying desperately to be thought of as relevant despite the fact the world has clearly written you off as a useless hobag.

  24. Skinnybetch says:

    She’s completely narcissistic, but she has to find some way to stay relevant in order to keep selling her ’17 different product lines’. And since her reality shows, music career, and acting career all went down the shitter, djing seems like the next best thing. . . I hope she finds love and has some babies soon. . . Her life seems so empty.

  25. Butch says:

    ohhh @ Skinnybetch….”Her life seems so empty”. I love your sincerity.

  26. Lisa says:

    Oh shit, I missed the DJ part at first, and thought she meant working out 6-8 hours a day. I was remembering the pictures of her from forever ago out on a run with her new bf.

  27. max says:

    There is no truth meter to this woman.

    6-8 hours a day for a year?! Yeah right.

    “entrepreneur” to her means to say any media-friendly shit that will make poseurs buy her over-priced sweatshop-made trinkets .

  28. Mooshi says:

    This is just another way she can force people to look at her face plastered all over the screens.

    I would throw up if my son was this narcissistic.

    Does her family tell her she is the center of the universe all time?

    How does a person reach this level of delusion? Please someone explain this to me.

  29. Tiaranui says:

    Her handle could, I mean should be DJ Wonkeye

  30. judyjudy says:

    She has FIFTEEN fragrances?

  31. Lisa Turtle says:

    Wow. This is actually the perfect job for her.

    Let’s be honest:

    If douchey, untalented men can do it. Why shouldn’t America’s own Paris do it too.

  32. erika says:

    An Artist and Her Craft…

    It’s really sad though, she doesn’t realize how passe’ she is…I cry for her.

  33. Mary says:

    Even back when she was popular, I always viewed her as just a silly girl who was sometimes funny (in a total ditz sort of way). I never found her annoying but I also never found her to be an idol figure by any means. On the other hand, Kim K who is also a famewhore annoys the heck out of me. I’ve been trying to figure out why and have come to the conclusion that Paris was popular back when I was in my late teens so maybe that’s why? I mean, the people that love Kim are teenagers right? Anyway, just a theory. I actually like Paris for some reason.

  34. MB says:

    “Paris Hilton on DJing: “I’ve been training for 6-8 hours a day for a year”” – Wow, im pretty surprised by this. Mainly because if I trained for something 6-8 hours a day for a year I would be, you know, not terrible at it.

  35. tmnt says:

    that paris hilton is attempting anything serious is completely laughable and fake.

  36. askew says:

    See guys, cummin on a woman’s face can cause permanent eye damage. Seriously, I think the existence of people like this is truly a sign of the apocalypse.
