British Graffiti Artist Banksy Tampered Paris Hilton's New CD

Paris Hilton's album became the target of Banksy’s latest stunt.


"Paris", the new Paris Hilton's CD, has become the target of British graffiti artist Banksy's latest stunt. The man reportedly has tampered hundreds of the debut album with his own remixes by a musician identified simply as "DM."

A representative for Banksy, Jo Brooks, tells the BBC that the artist has doctored 500 of the discs in 48 record stores across the U.K., including Virgin and HMV branches and independent shops. Also Brooks added that the forgeries are "very subtly done and do look like the original albums. You have to look quite carefully to see what he's done."

What's more, Banksy changed the album sleeves with a topless body and replaced the head with a dog's head while at the same time also adding stickers to replace Paris' song names with his own titles such as "Why Am I Famous?", "What Have I Done?" and "What Am I For?".

A spokesperson for HMV tells the BBC the chain has recovered seven copies of the altered CDs and plans to auction them off. He said no customer has complained or returned a Banksy version of the disc. "It might be that there will be some people who agree with his views on the Paris Hilton album," he continued.
