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.

Paris is one very smart and rich chick. She just keeps working, traveling and focusing on her goals -- always smiling and looking super good all the time. That's the way you do it!

I got this figured out so fast. She has other people creating mixes for her to play so all she has to do is hit the play button.

Paris darling, you aren't a DJ. You don't just become a DJ overnight claiming to be the best. I've been a DJ for 20 years and I can work 8 vinyl turntables at the same time. I bet you couldn't even handle 2 decks at the same time without losing beats.

If you want real entertainment, bring me into one of your nightclubs and I'll have that place packed with people coming in from all over. I am from Hollywood.

She meant she has the top 5 STD's in the world. She misunderstood the question asked.

So, in other words, she finally found a career for all that talent of hers.

She won't make next year's list. She'a making that claim based on one or two shows where she was WAY overpaid.

There's a difference between BEING one of the Top 5 DJs in the world and being one of the Top 5 highest PAID DJs - she's a commodity because of her international notoriety, not because she's the best in the biz...

The old adage must be right.
