Globetrotting entrepreneur and single girl Paris Hilton took Las Vegas by storm this past week and even surprised thousands of partygoers at the Deadmau5 concert revealing herself as one of the “ghosts” onstage during his hit “Ghosts ’n’ Stuff.” Paris looked stunning in a sexy white mini-dress that was thigh high for her amazing dance routine.
Sister Nicky, also newly single, was along for the fun. The twosome have just wrapped a jam-packed business and pleasure summer schedule in the South of France, Spain, Manila, Ibiza, Majorca and finally in Paris working until 6 a.m. in the studio for her new CD produced by Grammy Award winner DJ Afrojack.

“I had the most incredible time in Paris. I really enjoyed the beautiful city, felt so happy and blessed there, and loved it so much. Long hours, but so much fun -- except for the overly aggressive paparazzi who took it to a whole new level chasing me on their motorcycles,” she said.
Paris and Nicky had less than 24 hours after landing back in L.A. from Spain to prepare for the Labor Day Weekend parties on The Strip. The weekend began at the Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan for Deadmau5, where Paris anonymously donned a ghost outfit to go onstage. When she revealed herself, the wild crowd went into an even bigger frenzy, and Deadmau5 gave her a huge shout-out.
Said Paris: “It was so much fun and such an honor to be asked to go onstage and be his ghost in the show. Love DeadMau5! We love his music. So epic! An amazing night!” Nicky and she stayed the rest of the show in a stage-view table VIP area where the sexy servers from Marquee brought them champagne. Then at 3 a.m., it was on to Marquee with DJs Blake Jarell and Armin Van Buuren. Chef and father-to-be Curtis Stone and Gossip Girl’s Matthew Settle also were there.
The next day, the whirlwind began all over again with celebrations at Tao Beach and Tao’s restaurant and nightclub at the Venetian, Lavo in the Palazzo and then back to Marquee. They called on their favorite hair guru Michael Boychuck and makeup princess Rain Andreani to add the glamour and sparkle.
Christina Milian was spotted in the DJ booth at Tao Beach with DJ Reach, while over at Marquee Dayclub, EDX and Markus Schulz kept the party at high energy. LMFAO and DJ Vice rocked the crowd at Tao, while Z-Trip held court at Lavo. Redfoo, SkyBlu and the 30-person strong Party Rock crew performed at Tao with favorites including “I’m in Las Vegas, Bitch” and “Party Rock Anthem.”
They sprayed the crowd with champagne and shots while Paris and Nicky watched dance floor center. LMFAO gave the sisters shout-outs during the show, and SkyBlu led the club in singing “Happy Birthday” to Redfoo for his 36th birthday and during the surprise of a four-tiered cake from Gimme Some Sugar.
Paris and Nicky joined DJ Vice in the booth and later Paris and SkyBlu danced on the Tao catwalk to “Sexy and I Know It” as the crowd cheered them on. After partying at Tao, they hit Marquee in the wee hours for DJs Blake Jarrell, Avicii and Cosmic Gate. Deadmau5 returned, too. Will.i.am and Apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas and Craig Robinson of The Office also joined the fun.
DJs Chris Garcia, The EC Twins and Roger Sanchez had played earlier in the Marquee Marathon by day and night. As if that wasn’t enough, Tao Group execs also booked Cedric Gervais to DJ at TAO, DJ Vice at Tao Beach and The EC Twins at Lavo. Paris accompanied Deadmau5 to the Mario Barth King Ink party in the Mirage last Sunday with gal pal Lindsay Gayle to watch the DJ get a tattoo.
The sisters later returned to Marquee with a group of friends to enjoy Dirty South’s set, and once again DJ Afrojack was in the club. They wound up back at Tao at 4 a.m. as DJ Erick Morillo continued his 10-hour set in honor of his 10th show at the club. Also there: DJ Afrojack, Maxwell, Dirty South, Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia, Kaskade, Pete Tong, Redfoo and Chuckie.
After learning how to spin the wheels of steel in Ibiza, Paris now calls Deadmau5 “her boy.” I have to find out what that means! When I used Twitter to post the first photo of Paris dancing for Deadmau5, she must have been pleased with the Denise Truscello shot, as she promptly forwarded my tweet to her 5 million followers.
