In case you missed it, Paris Hilton is a DJ now. The BH-raised heiress made her big debut at the Pop Music Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil this weekend, as promised, during a one-hour set after performances by Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Clarkson. Hilton donned leather gloves, bedazzled headphones, a bedazzled dress, and waved a bedazzled Brazilian flag. She tells E! that the gig went over well: "I could not have been happier with the crowd's reaction to my set. It felt so good to be in control of the party and see everyone dancing!" Look out for DJ Paris Hilton at a party near you. [E!; Previously]
