When Heidi Montag‘s music video for the song “Higher” debuted this week, there was a strong and unified reaction across the Web. But it’s not the kind of reaction you would expect someone to appreciate. Now, Heidi is thanking for their comments — even the nasty ones.

Heidi’s former fianc Spencer Pratt, who shot the “Higher” video, had his own theory as to why it got the reaction it did.

“She’s so beautiful and she’s an unbelievable singer,” he says. “The quality of music and the music video has never been seen before.” AP
