A Heidi Montag music video is nothing if not a conversation starter. Remember the flurry of criticism surrounding the clip for her single “Higher?” (You know, the one that showed her chasing seagulls and writhing around in the surf in a pink bikini.) Well, the Hills star is planning another video, one that will “blow ‘s minds very soon,” Montag’s former fianc (and sometimes director) Spencer Pratt told PEOPLE at a pre-Valentine’s Day celebration for the video game “EA’s Burnout Paradise.” Promising that the video will be out “within the month,” Pratt says the new project will be more conceptual but still “very simple, and very entertaining, just like the last one.”
Montag told PEOPLE she’s been eagerly plugging away at her musical career, working in the studio “every night for about two months.” But don’t expect everything to sound like the synth-heavy “Higher.”
“It’s all different,” Montag explained. “There’s some edgier stuff, they’re some fun dance tracks — it’s everything. It’s definitely going to be different than what everyone suspects.”
Citing artists like Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera and, yes, the Beatles as influences, Montag explained her inspirations simply, saying, “I feel like all artists inspire music in one way or another.”
Apart from singing, Montag is hard at work on another project that could start a brand new conflict with her Hills rival and budding designer Lauren Conrad. And this catfight may play out on a catwalk. That’s right, Montag is also working on a clothing line called Heidi Wood by Anchor Blue, set for release in late February or March. “That’s my spring collection,” she said. “I’m very excited about it.” –Shruti Dhalwala
