Heidi Montag's lackluster album sales

It seems no amount of publicity can generate record sales for reality television star Heidi Montag.

Despite a media blitz this week that landed her on the cover of People magazine admitting she had ten plastic surgery procedures in one day, Montag’s  album “Superficial” has sold less than 1,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen Soundscan.

Individual songs from the album are doing better and have been downloaded more than 6,000 times.

“The Hills” star invested a healthy chunk of her own change into the project, telling Entertainment Weekly magazine that she spent every dollar she had on this project.

“I’ve spent over $1 million, almost $2 million, on this album. It's cost as much or more than a Britney Spears album because I wanted it to be that quality... The songs will make an impact in pop history,” Montag, 23, told the magazine.

Spears’ last album “Circus” sold more than 500,000 copies in its first week.

When asked what she would do if the album flopped Montag expressed disbelief at that kind of outcome.

“That’s not even a possibility. I think within the first week we will definitely make our money back,” she said.

    a lot of people say they wish heidi and spencer should go away, that thier loser's and fake, the only reason they have stayed this long in the public eye is, because we keep giving them attention. Whether it is good or bad they don't care, as long people keep talking about them they will remain in the public eye. If everybody just stopped talking about them and ignored them then they would finally be gone for good!

    She is a JOKE and a complete media whore. Get a CLUE blondie – nobody cares what you look like and your music is laughable. You and your crazy husband have used your 15 min. of fame. GO AWAY!!!

    It's just sad. Here is a girl who was actually quite pretty, and in an instant (well 10 plastic surgeries and a flop cd) has thrown away any slight chance she had of becoming famous for who she really is. She will now be famous for being a freak show. It's the honest truth. She will soon be known as lion lady #2. WHY did she do this to herself? Spencer will end up leaving her, and I am sure she will have an x rated movie career starting soon. Her poor family. Heidi, if you are reading this, slow it down girl! Really, no really. You are still young. You have time to change your life around. Who wants a life like the one you are creating for yourself?

    Wow. That $2 million could have been spent on this little thing called Haiti, or at least in her case, more plastic surgery. Well at least the plastic of the CD is recyclable.

    1000 copies of her album sold in one week? Vanilla Ice could release a Christmas album in July and sell more units in an hour.

    Quit lying Heidi...

    You wish you spent 1-2 million on the album! If you spent that kind of money, you'd have some of the biggest producers and guest appearances ever on this album. Twelve 3 minute tracks don't cost seven figures for studio time....lol

    And, if by chance, you did spend that kind of money on such a horrific project....I'm sure the producers of "I'm a Complete Idiot, Get Me some Meds" will be calling you soon!

    Well, looks like she's a little red in her artificial face.

    She can't sing without being overly produced. They have stuff now that can make even dead cats sound good, but sadly it didn't work for her. That was two million dollars flushed down the john.
