DJ Pauly D made $11 million in the past 12 months




Paul DelVecchio (aka Pauly D), who's better known for his hair and hook-ups rather than any actual talent, has made $11 million on deejaying alone in the past 12 months, the New York Daily News reports. This doesn't count money made on his clothing line, reality show, brand of tanning lotion, cocktail line and headphones. Bill Gates may be getting worried.

On a list of highest-paid DJs compiled by Forbes magazine, Pauly D ranked 7th out of 10. Tiësto topped the list at $22 million, followed by Skrillex ($15 million), Swedish House Mafia ($14 million), David Guetta ($13.5 million), Steve Aoki ($12 million) and Deadmau5 ($11 million). Below Pauly D is Kaskade ($10 million), Afrojack ($9 million) and Avicii ($7 million). We wonder what Pauly D will do with all that money. In the meantime we can only guess: gym, tan, laundry -- obviously.
