Banksy and Paris Hilton

Banksy has done it again. He has smuggled into record stores 500 doctored copies of Paris Hilton's debut album.

A worthy target for the 'guerilla graffiti' artist Banksy. His 'artwork' included replacing the title tracks with a list of questions :
" Why am I famous?", "What have I done?" and "What am I for ?"

Well the answer is she is famous for being famous, a symbol of our shallow celebrity obsessed society. Money and connections has bought her fame and the 'highlights' include the infamous home sex video and taking the piss out of 'ordinary' people in her TV programme 'The Simple Life'. And if you find people using mobile phones on trains annoying well Paris trumps that. Apparently she is seen taking a call on her mobile whilst having sex.

Looks like those CD's will become collectors items. Shame the people who will have them are those so stupid and shallow as to have bought a Paris Hilton CD in the first place.
