Welcome to Atlantic City. How excited are you to have your first DJ residency here at the Pool After Dark?
So excited; this is like home to me–like everybody I know if here today! I got one hundred people alone on my guest list so I can’t wait to spin for everybody!
You have your new show, The Pauly D Project what antics do you get into throughout the season?
Man–I’m excited about my own show–it’s like my own show so the world gets to know a little bit more about myself and my guys that I brought along with me are some crazy guys. They all got like some strong personalities so we get ourselves into some trouble. You can see what it’s like behind-the-scenes being a touring DJ so I’m excited to show the world that.
Aside from deejaying, what are some of your goals?
Music really is my passion so I also want to do some producing now; I’m working on an album. The theme song from my show, The Pauly D Project is “Night of My Life” I produced it along with The Closers and Dash is the one singing on it but it’s number three on Dance right now on iTunes–I’m excited about that.
Will you be taping the Jersey Shore this summer?
Yes, I’m excited to go back–I miss Jersey all winter so summertime comes I like to head to Jersey with my cast.
Are you starting a new partnership with 50 Cent?
Yes, I’m partnering with him on some new headphones and I signed with his record label for his album.
What was it like on the Britney Spears tour?
Britney Spears Tour was amazing. That was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life and the fact that Britney Spears even knows I exist is amazing to me.
Is this a dream come true for you?
Yes, it actually is 100 percent a dream come true. It’s been a blessing for me and I’m loving every minute of it!
