British graffiti artist Banksy has tampered with 500 copies of Paris Hilton’s new CD, Paris, changing pictures on the album sleeve to show Hilton topless and with a dog’s head and adding stickers advertising her “hits” such as “Why Am I Famous?”
He also replaced the discs themselves with CDs of remixed music by a musician identified only as “DM.”
Banksy’s rep, Jo Brooks, tells the BBC the artist doctored discs in 48 record stores across the U.K., including Virgin and HMV branches and independent shops.
Without explaining why Banksy targeted Hilton, Brooks tells the Associated Press 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.”
