Despite receiving anything but positive reviews, Heidi Montag’s joke debut single “Higher” reached No. 7 on the iTunes Top 10 pop charts.

“Looks like all the haters are also buying it!” the aspiring singer said.

But that doesn’t mean the negative responses posted on Us Weekly and other celebrity gossip websites didn’t hurt and humiliate Heidi Montag.

“I just started sobbing uncontrollably,” she said. “I cried myself to sleep that first night after my video came out. I just couldn’t understand why people I didn’t even know felt the need to be so cruel and hurtful.”

Hmm. It might have to do with her being a talentless media whore.

“I am just a 21-year-old from a small town trying to follow her dreams,” says The Hills star, who ain’t complaining about Us interviewing her daily.

A “sad” Heidi Montag stages a photo in which she pretends to be hurt by “fans'” reactions to her music video. Spencer Pratt acts as the supportive boyfriend.

All was not lost, though. Spencer Pratt, Heidi’s boyfriend (and ex-fiance) as well as the director of the video, was there for support, fortunately.

“I just held her and told her it was going to be OK,” he said. “It’s just part of being an artist. If it were easy, everyone would be a pop star.”

How did the music video concept for “Higher” come to be?

“We were at the beach and, literally, Spencer had his camera and a boom box in the trunk,” Montag recalls of the amateur shoot in October. “We did it in one take, maybe two. It took 20 minutes to film and cost zero dollars.”

Literally, people! As opposed to Spencer Pratt having the camera and boom box in the trunk of his car in, like, a figurative sense. Whatever.

“We had other ideas but we couldn’t afford them,” Montag said.

Hey, maybe next time. For now, you gots to calm down, girl. It sucks ass regardless, so producing it might as well be free. Think about it.
