Electro is so dead.
When Madonna jumped on the EDM train and started yelling about her friend Molly, it was bad enough. But now, famous-for-being-rich-and-skanky Paris Hilton is poised to hop on that bleeping-blooping choo-choo and wreck it in front of thousands of Brasileño dance music fans.
The hotel heiress and girlfriend of megastar DJ Afrojack will make her spinning debut with a one-hour set at next month's Pop Music Festival in São Paulo, Brazil.
"I cannot wait to DJ for the first time in front of thousands of people," Paris tells Billboard. "I have been a part of the music scene and club scene since I was 15. It's something I have been passionate about and have come to respect very much. I am very excited to share all of my hard work with the world."
So, just because a person goes out a lot and makes out with a legitimate selektor, that person is totally qualified to become a DJ?

And we're skeptical for a million other reasons. Like, the fact that Ms. Hilton doesn't even understand the first rule of the craft: Fuck your requests. Remember when Steve Angello had to put a ho in check a couple of years back during WMC?
But ... Oh, Jesus, why not? Everyone else is a DJ these days. In the end, we suppose Paris is just as legitimate as any other ho-hum frat dude with a laptop.
Besides, here's hoping she drops her own single in the mix!
