Heidi Montag told Entertainment Weekly that her new album costs her $2 million to make, bankrupting her in the process, but I guess she thinks it was worth it because she thinks the album is really good. As a matter of fact, Heidi says her album, ‘Superficial,’ is as good as Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller.’
“I think people might not see [that ‘Superficial’ is as good as ‘Thriller’] now, because it’s my first album coming out. But I’ve spent as much time-maybe more, even-than Thriller. Every detail was very important to me, because I take this very seriously.
Most artists, it’s not their own money, but I’ve actually gone broke putting every dollar I’ve ever made and my heart and soul into this music.
For me, I have a different appreciation, a different understanding, and a different love of my music and for my album than any other artist possibly could. Because this is my money. This is my gamble. This is my chance.”
Oy vey. If this is true, Heidi may be in for a hard lesson: you can’t buy success with money (as any record company executive could tell you :).
So what will happen if the Heidi doesn’t earn her money back?
That’s not even a possibility. I think within the first week we will definitely make our money back. The songs will make an impact in pop history. They are absolutely incredible and everybody involved is the best of the best. People just haven’t seen me as a pop star. I’m very excited for the world to see a whole new Heidi.
Well, you have to love her enthusiasm and positivity! So who was involved in putting this album together?

Well, I did it independently. If you look back at the superstars throughout history it used to take that long to put albums together. Now it’s more manufactured. I really wanted to take my time, and every song means so much to me. And every song was a true journey. I had to track down the songs myself, because it was just Spencer and I doing it independently. We really took our time with every single process, because we wanted it to be the highest quality possible. I wanted it to be back to the Thriller days, to that kind of sound. It’s timeless music, so whenever it comes out was the right timing.
But Michael Jackson had people like uber-producer Quincy Jones working with him… oh, never mind.
Heidi also said she hopes to perform next at the World Cup. Well, you have to give her credit for having drive and determination. She certainly won’t look back on her life and regret not pursuing her dream of fame.
