Paris gets Goa grooving

Candolim (Goa), Dec 2 (IANS) Like any other well informed deejay, Paris Hilton knew what's needed to get the crowd swinging and swaying. The socialite and entrepreneur chose the popular Korean song "Gangnam Style" and peppered the hit number with the words, "We will rock this night Goa" to begin her performance at the Sandkastle Music Festival of India Resort Fashion Week (IRFW).

After walking for designer duo Shane and Falguni peacock at the finale of the fashion fest in Peacock print gown, Paris looked all geared for her maiden performance as a DJ here in metallic knee-length dress. The four-day fashion extravaganza concluded here Saturday night.

"So Goa how are you feeling today, all set to rock the night and get grooved?" she asked before starting the performance and continued by adding, "I love you people. You guys are just so amazing, I Love India and the country rocks."

The music lovers danced on some of the popular tracks like "Tonight's Gonna be a good night" and "I'm sexy and I Know it" something that the 31-year old remixed herself apart from asking the crowd to go for Korean singer Psy's Gangnam style - the moment that was surely the highpoint of the night.

The heiress, who visited the country last year to launch the Fall-Winter designs of her handbags, made her debut as a DJ this summer during a music festival in Brazil.

Before this, Hilton made her entry into the music world in 2006 as a solo artist with "Stars Are Blind" and also released a self-titled album in the same year.

People from as far as Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai, and from countries like Ireland, New York and London attended the programme. They all were having fun in their own way.

"I love Paris Hilton, We were always the fan of her vivacious beauty and watching her spinning for the first time is incredible. Never believed that she actually got such a talent," said Viktoria Narain, a college student who came all the way from Bangalore to watch Paris perform.

"After watching her performance, I want to go and kiss her. She is just superb," said Daniel Verghis.

After the show got over, Paris promised to come back again soon.

"Wow! What a fun show! Had the best time performing tonight! So happy that you all loved my set! Loved seeing you all dance! Yes ( sic)," she tweeted.
