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.

It's a job, at least. There's a guy down the street in his early 40's that lives with his mom. He told me that he's ranked number 25 on the very same list.

What a relief! We can all relax now. We no longer have to be on pins and needles wondering what medical school Paris Hilton will be attending. She's decided she's a DJ. hooray. Now she gets paid to fist pump...in a club... as a D.J.

How old is she now? 31-32? Think about what you guys will be doing/ we're doing at that age and you realize how vapid and empty her life really is. Almost as sad as coming to the site lol

+1000. Yea, but... real DJ's actually do remixes and sh*t which highly doubt, Paris knows anything about. No doubt news will leak the bitch has been paying peeps to do the DJ tracks for her. Watch... point blank! #TRUTH!!

If she said she was one of the top hookers in the world, I would tend to agree.

hey paris.... the ladies in the la county jail are still waiting for you to live up to your promise to open a half-way house. what's up with that? woman up and try being honest for one time in your life. leave a legacy... no one cares if you are a good dj or not. you are only spinning someone elses music and even a monkey can do that. opening a halfway house that will help change women's lives is something you and your family would be proud of now and for years to come. your djing is nothing. zero... and something no one cares about.
