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 :).
