A Parody of a Parody
The New York Post's Page Six creation, Paris Whitney Hilton was arrested for driving under the influence according to news reports today. (Where was Elliot Mintz?????). A different story in the LA Times reveals the heirhead (as the Post now calls her since moving to LA) to be the victim of a guerrilla parody by Banksy (see www.banksy.co.uk). Banksy is reported to have taken copies of Paris' alleged recent CD, altered the artwork, and slipped in a remix he did along with the legendary Danger Mouse, of Grey Album fame. Mr. Mouse is reported to have said through his management company: "Its [sic] hard to improve on perfection, but we had to try." The work was then put on to shelves at 48 record stores across Britain for those who, for whatever reasons, had sought to buy the original.
