Paris Hilton Still Has a Few D.J. Tricks to Learn


Since aughts nostalgia is the thing this month (See: The Newsroom, MTV’s depressingly un-retro “Retro Block”), it seems like a perfectly good time to check in on mid-2000s paparazzi queen Paris Hilton, who has apparently taken up a new career as a celebrity D.J. Her first set went down this weekend in Brazil, and we don’t really know how to break this to the Paris Hilton fans among you, but … it was a little rocky. As in, she pressed a lot of the wrong buttons (at one point, she introduced her own song, then started playing Rihanna’s “We Found Love”), inflicted a “Somebody That I Used to Know” mash-up upon innocent Brazilians, and demonstrated a Taylor Swift–level commitment to awkward arm-dancing. The video, which is now making its way around the Internet at lightning speed, is really something to behold. She knows all the words to Gotye, at least?
