Most celebrities are a complete waste of space. They don't do anything of value, they don't give back to society and they spend their ridiculous fortunes on handbags and shoes that cost more money than most peoples annual salaries.

My favorite guerrilla artist is feeling my pain as he strikes at one of the largest, if not THE largest waste of space around, Paris Hilton. The Independent Online Edition had this to say:

Banksy has taken aim at the cult of empty celebrity and its current poster child, Paris Hilton. The secretive artist has smuggled 500 doctored copies of Paris Hilton's debut album into music stores throughout the UK, where they have sold without the shops' knowledge.In place of Ms Hilton's bubble-gum pop songs, the CDs feature Banksy's own rudimentary compositions. On the cover of the doctored CD, Ms Hilton's dress has been digitally repositioned to reveal her bare breasts; on an inside photo, her head has been replaced with that of her dog.

Flicker set of the Banksy artwork.
You tube video of the whole thing here.

Buy it: Get the guerrilla copies over here on ebay.
Visit: The official Banksy website.

90% of success is just showing up...
