It pays to be Paris

Paris Hilton scooped £1.6 million for four nights work as part of her new two-month DJ tour.

The heiress kicked off her run of 13 gigs with a set at Ibiza's Amnesia club, where she has a residency, on Wednesday night (06.08.14), but she was blasted for earning her huge £207,000-an-hour pay packet for simply "pressing play" as other workers reportedly did a lot of the technical work.

An Ibiza source told The Sun newspaper: "She's making £1.6million from the four nights - £207,000 an hour.

"The crowds do seem to enjoy it but most are too off their faces to care that she's simply pressed play on a Beyoncé megamix."

Paris has appeared to confirm she received the sum for four nights work after retweeting a fan's message about her big wages.

The tweet read: "Only Paris can do this RT @SuperiorPics Paris Hilton 'getting paid £1.6m for just FOUR nights work as DJ in Ibiza' (sic)"

Paris certainly seemed to be enjoying herself at Amnesia as she took to her Twitter account to tell her followers she was having a great time and reveal her favourite track to play is Calvin Harris' 'Summer'.

She wrote: "Amazing time at @amnesia_ibiza! @CalvinHarris #Killedit! His song #Summer is so sick! Loves it! (sic)"

Paris' DJ tour will see her take to the decks at L'Atlantida in Barcelona tonight (08.08.14) before she heads to St. Tropez followed by two dates in Portugal.

The 33-year-old socialite will also be jetting off to South Korea, Colombia, Marbella and Barcelona to show off her spinning skills with a number of returns to Amnesia scheduled in between those dates.

Paris' final DJ gig will be at Harrah's Pool After Dark in Atlantic City, New Jersey on October 11.
