Paris Hilton Hits Back At Deadmau5 After He Criticized Her Skills As A Celebrity DJ - 'Sorry I'm killing it!'


Paris Hilton has hit back at Deadmau5 for criticizing her skills as a celebrity DJ.

Deadmau5 - real name Joel Thomas Zimmerman - took to his blog to complain that Paris is an amateur who does not deserve to land the high-profile music gigs and the hefty paychecks that she does.

However, Paris responded on Twitter: 'I find it hilarious when others try to badmouth me in order to get attention. Sorry that I'm #Killingit while doing what I love & live for.'


In a lengthy and angry blog post, the 33-year-old Deadmau5 wrote: 'So Paris makes a billion dollars playing a CD at a club. thats great. how is this news again?'


'Personally, i would pay about as much to see her “perform” as Indy fans would pay to watch me struggle to get out of first gear and 20 feet off the starting grid in an Indy500 race without ending up in a wreck.'


The DJ appeared to be comparing their vocation as DJs to that of being a Formula 1 race car driver, and added: 'most “actual” drivers i know, have invested their ENTIRE lives to their careers.'

'Just like many musicians have. So i have to respect that…because i can hold that close, i’ve done it in my own field.'

He also suggested that Paris is 'loathed' by the DJ world, including himself.

Still, it doesn't look like Paris is going to lose any sleep over the comments.

It sounds as if it is sour grapes for Deadmau5, as it has just been revealed that Paris gets paid up to $1 million for a single DJ set. 

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 pagesix 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.
