WHO - - Star Tracks -

Celebri­ties are mix­ing it up and get­ting be­hind a turntable. Em­pire star Taraji P. Hen­son played a DJ on­stage (as DJ Raji, no less) when she hosted a mu­sic spe­cial in Ne­wark, New Jer­sey, on Aug. 5, while James Van Der Beek has taken on the per­sona of ac­tual DJ Di­plo for the se­ries What Would Di­plo Do? (air­ing on SBS Viceland). Cash­ing in on spins for real, though, are Game of Thrones’s late Hodor, Kris­tian Nairn, and so­cialite Paris Hil­ton. Re­quests, any­one?

Hen­son (left) rocked on­stage for show; Van Der Beek stars as Di­plo in a new mock­u­men­tary se­ries. Nairn per­formed at the Linq ho­tel in Las Ve­gas on July 23.

Hil­ton (in 2014) has been spin­ning for years, even though crit­ics scratch her skills.
