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.

update_graphic_red_bar
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.

Let's look at this: why is the world would a "DJ" be so highly regarded? Probably because music today sucks so hard that somebody needs to take the recordings and do something with them. Run them together and mix them up so that all you need to focus on is keeping those hands in the air. Proof that anyone can do it is evidenced by the fact that Paris is among the "top 5." Your dog could do it. Besides, the acts themselves suck so hard that people are not really interested in seeing them perform (unless they're among a paid crowd). It's not about the music anymore, hasn't been for a long time. So Paris, you go girl! I think Courtney Stoddard would be a "Great DJ" too! People will buy anything today.

After this article, I looked at the forbes article. Pauly d did like 50 60 appearances for 13 mil. If she makes 100k/hour * 3 per appearance. Thats close to a mil for 3 gigs. If she did 60 gigs thats 20 mil. That would tie her for 6th on forbes list with avicii. Crazy world we live in
