Hilton’s DJ Career
In the Summer of 2012, when Hilton first stepped into her DJ career, she wasn’t taken seriously by many people. As per Billboard, she confessed she was “nervous” initially but later triumphed in it as she could not imagine herself doing anything else.
In a 2017 statement, Paris Hilton said “I’ve just been having the time of my life,” adding “I didn’t realize what a huge success I would be.” It has been years now since she started DJing professionally and also did a momentous 5-year-long run in Ibiza. Though she has many fans, a lot continue to believe that she hasn’t excelled a lot in the field.
In 2017, a critic penned, that Hilton “is not a musician, but rather a brand name,” as per HuffPost. The critic then added that she has benefitted herself from a lot of help during DJ sets adding “in the middle of Paris Hilton’s subpar deejay debut in Brazil, a man suddenly appeared from behind the booth and started twisting the knobs on her Traktor Kontrol, essentially doing her job for her.”
For a lot of people, there are several such moments as proof that Hilton isn’t a “real” DJ.
Paris Hilton Considers Herself One of the Most Skilled DJs
Hilton does not pay heed to what critics have to say and it looks like the statistics do not lie certainly. As reported by The Guardian, Paris Hilton makes nearly $1 million for each DJ set, though she refuses to open up on definite figures. Despite being reluctant to reveal anything about money, HuffPost mentions that she has claimed to be one of the “top five in the world.”
Paris Hilton should be part of the highest-earning DJs’ list based on her alleged earnings. But in 2017, she was removed from the top-earning EDM DJs list, which might be a move that raised the criticism that she has gathered for not being a “real” DJ.
Despite all the random haters, she continued to make claims that she is one of the top DJs. In a November 2017 statement, she said “Inventing getting paid to party — I’m sorry, people want to hate on that? I think it’s pretty awesome.”
