Heidi Montag has big boobs, tiny album sales: her flop album sells fewer than 1,000 copies its first week

Despite a media blitz (mostly detailing her recent plastic surgeries), Heidi Montag’s Superficial s a total stiff, selling fewer than 1,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. To put that grim number into context, Vampire Weekend topped the charts the same week with 124,000 copies of their disc Contra. Montag told EW just last week that she had spent more than $2 million on the album, leaving her broke, but still wasn’t worried about the album’s success. “I think it’s gonna do great,” said Montag. “I have a million twitter followers and they’re all very excited. So that’s at least a million people right there. It also takes time. I don’t expect it to be instant. Maybe it’s the biggest album in a couple months. Maybe it’s the biggest album in a year. This is the first album of many to come. As long as I can keep affording it and keep doing it, I will because it’s my love and my passion.” EW contacted Montag for comment, but her rep said she was “unavailable for interviews due to Hills filming for the next couple weeks.”

    I almost feel bad for her. Almost.

    • 1,000?

      I can’t believe that many IDIOTS bought it!

      • Rich

        The sad thing is, thanks to the “miracle” of a thousand reality shows… We’ll never get rid of her now. She’s gonna be on TV for the next 30 years paying off her idiotic album budget!!!

        So yeah… Everyone’s a loser in this scenario.

  • Monty

    let me be the first to say…

    MY band outsold Heidi in our first week of album sales.

  • Nick T

    It was funny on the GMA interview when she asked her to sing and she that her throat needed to rest because of surgery. That made my day!

  • Ambee

    Under 1000? Wow, that’s… outstandingly low.

    I’m not at all surprised, though. You can’t spend $2 million dollars banking on your lack of talent.

  • Wunderkind

    Isn’t this the album she claimed was equal to or greater than “Thriller”? Wow. Talk about putting your foot in your mouth. Apparently her “million” Twitter followers have better things to do than sink their hard earned cash into complete and total garbage…

    • t3hdow

      Tell me about it. Saying your first album is up to par with MJ’s Thriller is asking for trouble. Even more hilarious (besides spending $2 mil to produce the damn thing), K-Fed’s album managed 6,500 sold copies during its first week. Good luck catching up with that for your entire run. XD

      • Noirprncess

        I am cracking up over the fact that she managed to undersell K-Fed!

    • Dave

      Seriously, I can’t even begin to understand how delusional this girl is. As good as Thriller!?!? She’s insane! Her album doesn’t even come close to a Britney Spears album.

  • Tha Phoenix


    You guys know it only sold 658 copies, right? FACT!!

    What did we say? We KNEW IT!!

    • a fan

      Well, count me one of the 658, then. Really, it wasn’t that bad. Okay, it was no masterpiece by any stretch, and it was painful in parts, but overall it was not THAT bad. I’ve heard worse. Like Paris.

      • whatevs

        I can’t believe you contributed money to this pathetic sack of plastic.

      • a fan

        What’s two mocha lattes? Seriously, while she may be pathetic and borderline scum, I did hear some marginal musical talent. Now, it could all be smoke and mirrors, but overall, again, it was not THAT bad. I don’t have to like personally like her or what she does to salvage some joy from her music.

      • doris

        What kind of fool are you? Even Paris had a hit song off her album. And EW was stupid enough to give Paris’s album a B.

      • Rich

        At the zoo, you feed the animals, don’t you??

      • Jean Genie

        Oh, gee – not only does someone here admit to buying this, but she’s so earnest about it, too. Too scary.

    • Bobby’s Robot

      Really?? Over 600 people actually spent money on it??

      • bro

        No, not six hundred people. Spencer bought about 500 of those, I’m pretty sure.

      • bro

        …And, other than the guy a few comments up from me, the rest were probably gag gifts.

      • a fan

        Hi bro, I am not a guy. Thanks.

  • Mari

    Best news I’ve heard all day.

  • A

    Will her and her husband go away now.

  • Momo

    I would feel bad for her, but then her and Spencer do get paid for showing up at clubs. So unless she goes crazy with her plastic surgery, I think she should be just fine financially.

  • I don’t know why but


  • Marianne

    Can the media please stop featuring her in general? She doesn’t deserve an article or anything. She’s famous for nothing. We are all just feeding into her fame-whore machine. Bad press is good press for her- no matter how embarrassing. I just really want her and these fame-whores to go away for the sake and sanity of society.

  • Kurt


  • keith

    She is so delusional. I used to think she was some sort of evil genius, but after all the surgeries, it’s clear the girl is not playing with a full deck.

    And that husband of hers. Bleck. I wish they’d all get lost at sea or something. I find them all utterlly, utterly depressing.

  • Ambient Lite

    I only hope her failed music venture doesn’t leave her bored enough to start a family. They’ve threatened spawn before.

    • Dave

      LMAO! Thank you for this comment, Ambient Lite!

  • Cori

    Her 1 million Twitter fans probably didn’t even recognize her on the cover of the album since she looks like a man now. THAT takes talent.

    • bro

      So true. She went from being a relatively pretty girl to being an only marginally convincing drag queen in just 10 hours!

      • KJ

        Best comment, by far! Well played.
