Paris Hilton has added lots of things to her resume, but one of the most talked about is her career as a DJ. The heiress and socialite was even the subject of a recent petition after thousands of people attempted to get her name removed from the Summerfest bill. However, she’s pressing forward with her love of music and has just announced a new residency in Las Vegas.
Hilton says she can’t reveal just yet where the residency will be, but Vegas has proven to be a huge career boost for many, many artists over the years, including Britney Spears and Shania Twain. As far as the rumors surrounding her talent, Hilton says there’s been a lot of talk about her skills, but no one really gets it right.
“There are so many rumors out there. People who think that I don’t play live. There are so many haters that make up so many stories. But anybody who comes and sees a show and watches behind the booth will see I know exactly what I’m doing. I’ve been training so hard for the past five years. I think I’ve really improved myself. Because I’m Paris Hilton, people assume, “Oh, she’s just this rich girl.” They don’t understand that I’ve actually been going to raves since I was 15 years old. I love music. I love entertaining people. I love partying. I love having a good time and having people around me have a great time. So I feel like DJing is kind of perfect for what I do,” she said.
Hilton–who is a powerhouse when it comes to branding–says she stays busy with her fashion line, fragrances, and line of accessories, but that she has a natural gift for entertainment.
“During the day, I’m a businesswoman. I travel around the world. I work with different products and brands. Then at night, I get to DJ for all my fans and have an incredible time. And that’s what it’s about. DJing is about entertaining, having fun with the crowd, and making people have the time of their lives,” she told Billboard.
Hilton and her family made headlines last month when her younger brother, Conrad, got into some trouble on a flight and reportedly cursed out several people in a rant. Paris hasn’t commented on the incident, but Conrad was arrested at the scene.
