[ptsotl] Paris Hilton is a DJ now and that's hilarious for some reason

BECAUSE SHE'S A GIRL

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

AYO HOW MANY OF YOU DUDES HANG OUT WITH AVICII AND KASKADE ON THE REG? SHOUT OUT RIGHT HERE. ANYONE? 


You know what it takes to be a DJ?  A certain amount of time spent trying to be a DJ. That's it. You know what it takes to be a DJ with a following? A certain amount of time spent trying to be a DJ and, like, 13 cute girl friends who are into coke. Instant success. That's not some rockist anti-DJ stance either, because I listen to electronic music all the time and think a lot of it is the most exciting new music being made right now (via Julio Bashmore, Scuba, Jacques Green, and Mosca if I'm trying to seem cool, and Nero, Kaskade, and Skrillex if I'm not). 

I'm not even a Paris Hilton fan, and I have no vested interested in defending her here. But the point is this: that joke isn't funny anymore. You know how all of you guys feel when someone like Paris Hilton says she wants to be a DJ? That's how I feel when you act like you want to be an internet comedian. Leave it to the people that have actually put in the hours of work.
