Say what you will about him, Spencer Pratt knows the celebrity gossip game inside out and plays it to perfection. One might even say he is the game.
Fully embracing his role as The Hills and Hollywood's public enemy #1, the scruffy one somehow parlayed his reality TV notoriety into legitimate fame.
In an interview with Complex magazine, "The Future of Hip-Hop" talks about his new rap career, while throwing Beyonce, Asher Roth, Brody Jenner and others under the bus in the process. Hey, it's a Spencer Pratt interview, after all.
Q: What’s going on man, how are things?
Spencer Pratt: The usual, just another amazing day in my life. On the way to the gun range with my wife, ready to go fire off some hollow points out of the 19.
Q: Ha, OK. So you made headlines yesterday talking about Asher Roth, saying he lacks swag. If you had to battle Asher Roth, what would you use against him?
Spencer Pratt: I mean, the fact that I’m so paid, and he’s broke [laughs]. Simple as that. That’s my whole point, being that I’m fly with tons of money. I’m sure he’ll have a lot more swag in three years if he keeps selling.
Q: You also said, “I’m like the white Jay-Z.” Would you consider Heidi the white Beyoncé?
Spencer Pratt: More than the white Beyoncé. Beyoncé had to be built by a group, Destiny’s Child. Heidi shines solo. I’ll actually give you an exclusive: I guarantee you Speidi’s “Bonnie & Clyde” version is going to stunt on Jay and B’s version.
Q: Wow. Is that song going to happen?
Spencer Pratt: Yes. Steve Morales is already working on the track. That’s my Puerto Rican guru on the beat.
Q: I saw that you’re trying to reach out to OJ Da Juiceman for him to get a verse on a Morales-produced track.
Spencer Pratt: Yeah, I’m trying to get him on my first real single because “I’m A Celebrity” is not my single. That’s just my marketing tool for the show. My first single, I just want to have me, Gucci Mane, and OJ Da Juiceman. It’ll be the flyest song in the game. I’m going to track them down, that’s my priority today.
