DJ Paul Oakenfold

Flabbergasted

At Paris' 'Top 5 DJ' Claim

World class DJ Paul Oakenfold not only scoffs at Paris Hilton's claim she's one of the top 5 DJs in the world ... he can't believe she had the audacity to say it!

Oakenfold -- who many consider the godfather of electronic music -- was in disbelief that anyone -- including Paris -- would put herself at the top of the heap.


But top 5 is subjective -- Fact is Paris IS in demand.  She performs all over the world including Ibiza -- and we're told she makes up to $350,000 an hour.

So, we gotta ask ...

Oakenfold is the godfather of electronic music - if you write for TMZ and have been familiar with the scene for five seconds.

Top five paid - possibly. But top five in talent - no way. Absolutely no way.

come on guys, i'm just guessing here, but i am guessing she meant in terms of pay, and if she's pulling in over 300k per HOUR, she's right.

she's a ditz, and i think it's funny that this whole dj thing is considered talent anyway unelss they're on the boards MAKING the music, but still, i'm betting she meant in pay.

and obviously she's not paid due to talent, it's her celebrity status.

whatever, it's all dumb anyway

I've been a dj For over 20 years.... both digital and with 1200s. There isn't much to it now, as long as you can pick music that the masses will enjoys, anyone can do it as long as they can count. People knock the Lack of skill it takes now but not having to carry records is so very awesome

Paris has always been good at getting paid to do nothing. What's surprising is that she's found another way to do it... and at her age.

Well, if we have to go here, there are a lot more big time space bar-pressers before we get to the attention whore known as Paris Hilton. Aoki, Avicii, deadmau5, Oakenfold, Daft Punk, Skrillex, Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack... and that's off the top of my head. This chick needs to fall back and return to irrelevance,

I used to date a professional DJ, and I've done it myself a couple times. The job isn't that hard, but it takes some talent to properly read the audience. If she means she's PAID in the top 5, I believe her. If she means she's one of the top 5 TALENTS, she's full of isht.

If she knows about Edm like she claims she does. She'd never make such a claim. Sounding like a moron! but then again she likes making a fool of herself. NEGATIVE ATTENTION is STILL attention to five year old.

It's hard to believe anyone can DJ with all the skill that it takes to push some buttons and pump your fist to Disco music, it's totally amazing.
