Paul Delvecchio a.k.a. DJ Pauly D is making big bucks, thanks to his DJing skills.
The 32 year old guido went from making a few hundred dollars a night in a small town in Rhode Island to being named one of the highest paid DJs by Forbes Magazine, making more than $11 million last year.
If your name is on the Forbes list, we know you’re a big deal!
The Rhode Island native came in 7th place on the list, ahead of popular DJs like Afrojack.
Pauly D told Forbes,
“Everybody was skeptical at first, because how everybody heard about me is probably from Jersey Shore. But now I’m six seasons deep in the show and I’ve been touring all over the country, touring with major pop acts and stuff like that. That legitimizes everything, and they’re starting to say, “This kid isn’t just a reality star, he’s an actual DJ.”’
Pauly D is about his bread -last year he opened up for Britney Spear’s Femme Fatale Tour, he has his own reality show, The Pauly D Project and he has endorsed products such as headphones and vodka.
Congrats to Pauly D and we cant wait to hear about the next project he gets involved in!
