Bansky against Paris Hilton

I read this news in EL PAIS but I'll post the BBC version since this post is english:

"Hundreds of Paris Hilton albums have been tampered with in the latest stunt by "guerrilla artist" Banksy.
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.
A spokeswoman for Banksy said he had doctored 500 copies of her debut album Paris in 48 record shops across the UK."

So I think that's a great idea, at least funny... I don't think Paris Hilton is one of the biggest problems in the world right now (it's a pretty big one but not the biggest) but I think Bansky is promoting himself by doing this so his art will get to more people, that's good.

For the ones who don't know him Bansky is a "guerrilla" artist that expresses himself through graffitti (well, through stencil) with shocking clever designs combined with anti-system, anti-capitalism, anti-war slogans. You can check some of his art on his website.

In general I like his art, his logos, his ideas, but you also have to keep in mind that he is an "anti-capitalist" artist who some poeple say is sponsored by big corporations, so I don't think he needs to be worshiped or anything... he's just another artist, nobody is perfect.

Anyway, I LOVE the paintings he did in Palestine on the wall separating the occupied territories from Israel, you really need to check them.

PS: I'm totally addicted to Frets on Fire, a game where you play your keyboard like a guitar, it's free! chekt it out!

You sound to me pretty much like Chris Crocker a.k.a. "leave Britney alone guy"

Please if you come back again leave your email so I can write to you, maybe then you can tell me why is Paris Hilton so amazing, maybe you can tell me all the "cool stuff" she has done, and maybe then we can decide if she's better than me or not, and if I'm pathetic or she is.

Thanks for writing anyway!
