Pauly D's DJ Fee -- Spinning Out of Control

1/28/2010 2:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pauly D isn't just trying to land $10,000 an episode for Season Two of "Jersey Shore" -- it's also become his going rate for a night's work on the turntables.

Pauly D
TMZ has learned the Cadillac tattooed "guido" is trying to solidify DJing residencies across the country. His plan: To provide the fist pump soundtrack once every six weeks at three different clubs -- for anywhere between $10,000-$25,000 a gig.

FYI -- Before becoming The Situation's summertime wingman, Pauly D was pulling in $1,000 a night, 4-5 nights a week in Providence, RI.

I heard that DJ Paulie is NOT performing in Vegas this summer and that he won't be making special appearances in Jersey either. What's up with that?

Can't blame him. Love the guy or hate him, he will bring capacity crowds to bars and clubs guaranteed, and we all know clubs charge minimum of $6 per beer in most places. The clubs should be happy to book Pauly D for $10k/night when they're going to make $50-100k in cover fees and drink purchases. Welcome to business 101!

There must be a high demand and low supply of DJs in Providence if he made $1000 a NIGHT; I think TMZ actually meant $1,000 a week (working out to $200-$250 per night), which makes more sense.

$10,000-$25,000 a night? go to Vegas. They're stupid enough to pay another "no talent" hack this kind of dough. They'll do some worthless "host" night, and charge folks some ridiculous amount of $$$ to get in, to see this idiot try to mix. From all indications, the guy can't mix cake batter, much less records. How he was getting "a $1,000 a night 4-5 times a week" elsewhere is beyond me?

Why do you guys continue promoting useless people like this? Your time(and show) would better benefit actually promoting/highlighting struggling DJ's, more so that this idiot?

This is why you're not taken very serious as a serious news outlet.
