PARIS HILTON is a DJ now you guys. She's making her debut at the Pop Music Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil later this month. Apparently that's the most hilarious thing in the world to my pool of DJ and electronic music fan friends online. Not to call out anyone in particular, I've just seen way too many variations on this meme.
But wait, why is it funny again? Is it because she's a girl? Partly. Is it because she's an 'attractive' girl? Yes, also that. Is it because she's a meandering dilettante? Well I've certainly never heard of anyone trying their big boy DJ pants on for size on a whim. All the DJs I know came out of the womb dragging a crate of vinyl.
Basically, if I'm getting the jist of this amazing joke it's that some rich kid who spends a lot of time in clubs -- and I'd like to see anyone in my circle who's spent more time in clubs than Paris Hilton come right the fuck forward -- and has enough money to buy the equipment wants to play records for people? FIRST TIME EVER.
An insider revealed, “Paris is part of the tight-knit DJ group and has built some very good friendships including, Afrojack, Kaskade, David Guetta, Avicii, Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris, and Will.i.am. She’s had the opportunity to travel the world attending every festival and rave. Her music will be more than impressive." via
