Well, the transition of going from heiress,
…to sex tape
…to Simple Life
…to now: to DJ, is certainly paying off for Paris Hilton.
According to TMZ, when a staffer ran into Hilton recently at LAX, she was asked how well she was doing since her transition into the world of electronic music and how it was paying off (financially). The blond bombshell dropped a bombshell: “I’m one of the top 5 in the world, so…”
Immediately when we saw that, we at Other Side of the Fame know all too well who in the world of DJ’s would most certainly have a problem with that statement: DJ Spinderella.
…(member of the 90’s super-group: Salt n’ Pepa).
Spinderella is, and has been a real DJ by tried, tested, and true trade for a couple of decades now and (although she does radio too); she is very offended by the rash of Default DJ’s popping up in the industry talking yang about how great they are [and the fact that they just are default DJ’s when all else failed].
If our memory serves us correct, it’s not that she is hating, but she hates the fact that the skill is not taken seriously enough that these industry Default DJ’s haven’t, and won’t even study and respect it as a skill to be studied and respected [beyond someone showing them how to place the vinyl on the 1’s and 2’s and how to take ‘em off].
Knowing that Paris Hilton has that “hurry up-no wait” kind of money [versus “hurry up and wait”]; we know she didn’t (and wouldn’t) dare waste her time learning the skill of the trade. We know all too well that someone would be willing to give her a crash course on DJ’ing and instead; let her popularity do the rest (that’s just the nature of pretty much any industry skill, trade and profession).
Well according to TMZ……………
Yeezus…I mean-Jesus: take the wheel…but way’min’way’min let me explain:
Paris did ink a huge contract with one of the largest clubs in Ibiza this past summer after packing the house + moving the crowd for several months consistently.
Although she didn’t make the Forbes 2013 Top DJ’s list alongside the likes of:
Calvin Harris who scratched in $46 million
…followed by Tiesto at $32 million
…and (from VH1’s JerseyShore) throw DJ Pauly D in the mix at $12 million.
Yeah we know…the heiress could very well sit at home and simply be simple–and rank all of what they made on just being an heir. But according to TMZ who went diamond diving; sources close to Hilton told them she makes somewhere between 100k-300k per hour when she does DJ!
(I guess popularity and being famous for being famous does pay more, and is worth more than studying the skill earning your rank huh?).
