Banksy vs Paris Hilton

I've written about Banksy before - I think his art work is great. This latest prank involving doctoring the Paris Hilton album in stores is a pretty subversive way to critique the whole weirdness of the cult of celebrity around Paris:
Banksy has replaced Hilton's CD with his own remixes and given them titles such as Why am I Famous?, What Have I Done? and What Am I For?

He has also changed pictures of her on the CD sleeve to show the US socialite topless and with a dog's head.
Pictures of the doctored album are up on this Flickr set.

We all know the gods are crazy
We all know the stars are blind
Cause if they weren't baby
I would be fined
For being such a bimbo
Yeah I know it's true
If you want real porn in action
And a rich & spoilt brat too
Baby I'm perfect for you...
