Paris Hilton wins ‘Best Female DJ’ award

The heiress-come-DJ says she's 'honoured and proud to win'

Paris Hilton has been crowned the ‘Best Female DJ’ of the year by French youth station NRJ.

As Mixmag report, the station honoured the American heiress-come-DJ at an award ceremony held earlier this week. Last year, she took home ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ at the same event.

Hilton posted a photo of herself winning the award to Facebook, with the caption: “So honoured and proud to win the ‘Female DJ Of The Year Award’ at your awards show tonight!”

Paris Hilton recently claimed to be “one of the Top Five DJs in the world”, with it also revealed that she earns more than £600,000 ($1 million) for some of her DJ sets.

Hilton, who also had a fledgling pop career in 2006 with an eponymous solo album, began DJing in 2012 with a not-too-successful set at the Pop Music Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil. During her debut outing the singer was reported to be mainly dancing, rather than actually DJing or mixing any of the tracks.
