In the publication's article that focuses on his rise from reality star to international touring DJ, Pauly says:
"Everybody was skeptical at first, because how everybody heard about me is probably from Jersey Shore,” he says. “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.'"
So what was the salary that put him on Forbes' first-ever top-earning DJs list?
Congrats, Pauly! We're very proud of how far you've come in your career!
