Hilton diddled by prank

SOME Paris Hilton fans in Britain may have got more -- or less -- than they bargained for when they bought her debut album.

HMV has pulled from shelves several copies of Hilton's Paris album that have been doctored by British prankster Banksy.
They show a topless image of the celebrity heiress and a picture in which she sports the head of a dog.

A sticker promotes the "hits" Why am I Famous? What Have I Done? and What Am I For?
Instead of Hilton's perky pop, the CD features 40 minutes of remixed music by a musician identified only as DM.
Banksy's spokeswoman said the artist had planted 500 copies of the altered album across Britain.

Banksy, who remains anonymous, has surreptitiously hung fake artworks in major galleries in New York, Paris and London, and displayed a rock painting of a spear-toting man pushing a shopping cart in the British Museum in London.
