Where in the world are Heidi and Spencer? After months of laying low, the missing-in-action duo are back for the release of Heidi's new album, Superficial. And according to Mrs. Pratt, the record (which took three years and oodles of dough to make) was 100 percent worth the wait.
"Most artists, it’s not their own money, but I’ve actually gone broke putting every dollar I’ve ever made and my heart and soul into this music," the female half of Speidi told EW.com's Music Mix. "It’s cost as much or more than a Britney Spears album," she added, "because I wanted it to be that quality" and "make an impact in pop history."
In fact, the Hillzie also told Entertainment Weekly that she emptied out her life savings (which she estimated at $1-2 million) on Superficial, but predicted she'll make her money back "within the first week" of its release. So what makes her so sure? Well, according to Heidi, she's got the biggest hit since Michael Jackson's Thriller on her hands!
"I think people might not see it now, because it’s my first album coming out," she admitted. "But I’ve spent as much time –- maybe more, even -- than Thriller." But does she think Superficial holds up to Michael's career-defining (and record-breaking) smash? Surprisingly, yes.
"I definitely do," the "One More Drink" singer affirmed. "I think the possibilities of where this is going to go is going to be infinite ... This is the first album of many to come."
