Hundreds of Paris Hilton albums were tampered with in record stores in Bristol, Brighton, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and London in the latest stunt by "guerrilla artist" Banksy. Banksy had replaced Hilton's CD with his own remixes and gave them titles such as Why am I Famous?, What Have I Done? and What Am I For?. He had also changed pictures of her on the CD sleeve to show the US socialite topless and with a dog's head.
