Lindsay Lohan’s ex Samantha Ronson may not be able to carry a tune to save her life, but she’s built a reputation as a decent celebrity DJ, helped in no small part by her association with Lohan, her famous music producer brother, and her twin sister, fashion designer Charlotte Ronson. I’m not saying that Sam didn’t build a career in her own right, just that she surely benefited from her connections.
Anyway Sam is getting some mild competition lately from Paris Hilton, who mixed a DJ set at the San Paulo Music Festival in Brazil that was widely panned and mocked. Paris claimed in an interview with Hello! that she was qualified to be a DJ since she’s “been training every day for six to eight hours for the past year” and traveled around with her ex-boyfriend, DJ Afrojack, while he was working. Well Sam disputes that. A paparazzo caught up with her (video is here) and asked her about Paris’ latest career move and Sam basically said that Paris isn’t qualified:
“That whole sh*t with her is just like ‘oh, come on man, like she’s tried everything now. Put some quality the sh*t you do, put some effort into it. Listen, if you do the work, it will speak for yourself. If you’re going to be like ‘oh I’m just going to figure out how I’m going to make some money this week,’ it just insults the people that work really hard at it.
It’s me calling myself a doctor from like reading WebMD twice.”
I don’t disagree with her, I don’t think Paris is particularly qualified to be a DJ. I don’t think Paris is qualified to be a singer, either, but she knows how to compensate for her weaknesses, unlike Sam. At least Paris knows that she needs to use autotune and lipsync her music instead of trying to sing live. Plus, I do think that Paris works hard. She works hard at picking outfits, shaking her ass, making sure that the paparazzi know her whereabouts at all time, and practicing her duck face in the mirror.
Do you think that Sam dislikes Paris because Lohan and Paris have a longstanding feud? (See: Firecrotch incident.) As if there aren’t countless other reasons to dislike Paris.
