Lets on about being hot (6)


I believe the answer is:


'hot' is the definition.
(eg stolen goods are 'hot')

'lets on about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates an anagram.
'letson' anagrammed gives 'STOLEN'.

'being' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for stolen that I've seen before include "Taken unlawfully" , "subject to plagiarism" , "plagiarised?" , "Illegally taken" , "Pilfered" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
