Paris Hilton

I'm One of the Top 5 DJ's in the World

... Seriously.

Laugh all you want ... but Paris Hilton claims she's one of the TOP 5 highest paid DJ's in the world.

The heiress dropped the bombshell at LAX, after returning from a trip to Moscow ... when we asked if her foray into the world of electronic music has been paying off financially.

Her response -- "I'm one of the top 5 in the world, so..."

Here's the thing, it's definitely possible ...  as we previously reported, Hilton inked a HUGE contract with one of the biggest clubs in Ibiza back in the summer after packing the house for several months in a row.

She didn't make the Forbes top 13 Electronic Cash Kings for 2013 ... but don't be surprised if she pops up on the list next year.

Still, Hilton has her work cut out for her ... the highest paid DJ in 2013 was Calvin Harris, who reportedly raked in $46 ... followed by Tiesto ($32 mil).  Even Pauly D made $12 mil.

2:03 PM PT -- We did some digging ... and sources close to Paris tell us she makes between $100k and $350k per hour when she DJs.

Not bad ... not bad at all.

Good for Paris,

Most Rich Kids feel worthless, they don't know what it's like to make money from a Job. This gives her a sense of importance.

It's the perfect job for Paris, she is having fun, all the men & women she needs for sex, and it makes her feel loved.

I'm sure Paris will be one of the top 5 paid DJ's once they figure out the penis-to-dollar exchange rate.

Top 5 Djs are not sent to Siberia, Philippines, Goa, they Dj in London, NY, Miami. Nobody in any civilized country wants her, the only gigs her manager can book are in 3rd world countries that no one even knows. She doesn't have much money either, it's all her PR team's lies to make her look rich and relevant.

this is BS. The places she DJs at hire her cuz she a famous celeb not for her DJ skills. And theyd sell out whoever was DJing as theyre huge popular clubs.

WTF is wrong with her left eyrie? It is really ****ed up these days and she either wears sunglasses all the time or tries very hard to pose "just so" to minimize how wonky the thing is. As for her DJ gigs...gotta give her credit, she has really learned how to turn celebrity into dollars. Or las she actually discovered a talent for something besides bj's and posing?

Another pathetic attempt by this airhead to try to regain her lost popularity. Seriously, with all her money, why doesn't she just sit back and enjoy her life?

all DJ's are no talent hacks, based totally off hype and exposer. So I don't think she is wrong
