Paris Hilton is happy being single.

The 31-year-old star was recently linked to Dutch DJ Afrojack - the first man since her split from boyfriend Cy Waits - but denies they are close as she wants to be an ''independent woman'' at present.

She said: ''Every woman dreams of getting married and having a family one day, but right now I'm so busy travelling and working I wouldn't have time for that.

''When that time happens, it will be fantastic, but right now I'm just happy being single, and being an independent woman.''

The 31-year-old socialite has recently reinvented herself as a DJ, and admits she has been undergoing extensive training to get herself to the highest level possible.

She told Hello! magazine: ''I've been training every day for six to eight hours for the past year. I was up until 4am most nights, and then I had to change my set when I found out it was going to be more of a pop crowd at the Pop Music Festival in São Paulo, Brazil, rather than a dance music crowd.

''On the jet out, I spent the entire flight reworking the whole thing.''
