Paris Hilton to turn DJ at Brazil fest

New York: Socialite Paris Hilton is set to launch a new career as a DJ in front of thousands of fans in Brazil this summer.

Hilton will perform at the Pop Music Festival in Sao Paulo in June, following appearances by singers Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Clarkson. She will hit the booth for an hour-long show.

"I have been a part of the music scene and club scene since I was 15. It`s something I have been passionate about and have come to respect very much. I am very excited to share all of my hard work with the world," quoted her as saying.

Hilton is also perfecting her turntable skills with the help of boyfriend and international DJ Afrojack, who she joined on stage at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida in March.
