Paris Hilton — long derided as a celebutard joke — is having the last laugh as one of the top DJs in the world.
The hotel heiress has a residency at Harrah’s in Atlantic City and spins about twice a week in places like Dubai, Vietnam and Shanghai.
Last month, she was given the Paris fashion week stamp of approval when she performed in sunglasses at Carine Roitfeld’s A-list bash.
Paper magazine reports that Paris made $2.7 million spinning four nights in Ibiza, which works out to $347,000 an hour.
“I am working a lot as a DJ and getting paid very well and having a ball,” Hilton told me on Wednesday from the home in Los Angeles she shares with seven dogs, three cats, four ferrets, three flying squirrels, one pony and a pig.
Is it true she sometimes makes more than $1 million per gig?
“My mother always told me it’s not polite to discuss money, but it’s true,” she said. “I’m very proud. I’ve worked hard. I love music. It’s my passion.”
Hilton will be spending more time in New York, since she just made an offer on a full-floor loft in Soho, after having looked at more than 50 places.
Next she wants to buy her own Gulfstream because she’s tired of chartered jets.
“I don’t want to be bragging, but it’s great to be paid well for what you love doing,” she said.
But no one to share it with? “I’m single and I’ve never been happier.” Take that, haters.
