Heidi Montag Fights Back With 'Superficial'

'You don't know me or anything about me,' 'Hills' star says of her new single.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt certainly aren't afraid to defend their reputations. In Heidi's new single, "Superficial," off her forthcoming release of the same name, the "Hills" star, with the support of her husband, says people's image of her is way off.

Heidi, who, along with Spencer, is celebrating the finale of another "Hills" season this week, explained that the song is another big step in her pop-music career. "I have my album coming out January 12 ... which I've been working on for three years. ... [I worked with producer] Steve Morales, who did a lot of J.Lo, Celine Dion, Britney Spears. He's done everybody," she told MTV News. "This song is about how everybody just calls me superficial and says that I'm a bitch and only about fashion and everything, and they don't know."

The singer added that just because she appears to be a certain way doesn't mean you know her. "That's what it's about -- [appearing] superficial and how everyone calls me that," she explained. "So it's like, 'All right, you can call me that and I'll claim it, but you don't know me or anything about me. And you've only seen two minutes of me on "The Hills" for years.' "

In addition to prepping the album, Heidi is also amping up for her next TV appearance. She's in talks to perform at the World Cup next year. "I just performed at [article id="1619291"]Miss Universe[/article], which was over a billion eyes, a world record for the highest-rated television show for the history of the world," she said. "And now they're considering me and wanting me to do the World Cup, so that's what I've been doing. I'm gonna make a custom track."

Don't miss Heidi and Spencer on "The Hills" finale, airing Tuesday at 10 p.m. on MTV.
