For anyone who says Skrillex, Deadmau5, David Guetta and the like just get up on stage and push a few buttons, well, we now have proof that you're wrong thanks to "DJ" Paris Hilton. The heiress made her "DJing" debut in Brazil and showed the masses what it actually sounds like when a glorified DJ gets up on stage and literally just pushes a few buttons. Based on this video, she gave some turns of a knob here, crossed in a muddled mix there and meekly tried to coax the crowd into a frenzy.
Even dance music's detractors have to respect the sheer energy that someone like Girl Talk exudes up on that platform. But Hilton couldn't even get that part right. Compare her breezy swaying to this video. In an odd way, Hilton's example of what-not-to-do in a DJ set may be the best thing that could've happened to electronic dance music's fight for credibility.
