Source- [Pauly D]’s got a slew of eponymous products, his own television show and a DJ career that earns him an average of $40,000 per show from club gigs, private parties and a stint opening for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour. Over the past year, Pauly D pulled in $11 million, enough to earn him the No. 7 spot on FORBES’ first-ever top-earning DJs list.
Here’s the thing, I never have a problem with people making lots of money. If you do, then it just means you’re jealous. Does it really make sense that he makes more money than DJs such as Afrojack, Avicii, and Kaskade? Well sorta. There is no doubt that his producing skills no where near match those of the DJs previously listed. His live performances are good. I have heard him DJ live and I can tell you that he is not a terrible club DJ. I would also say that he does not bring as much excitement as a live Avicii set or an Afrojack set. But there’s a major entertainment factor. Kids who watched Jersey Shore will pay a ton of money to see a reality star. It doesn’t really even matter what Pauly plays anymore. People are gonna come to see him. The entertainment industry has always been a curious one. During times of recession, people pay for entertainment. So unless Pauly has personally wronged you, don’t hate on him for making a ton of money.
