Heidi Montag: Fake in Every Way

2010-01-13_132214I am by no means a fan of Heidi Montag. In fact, I think the only “celebrity” that I can stand even less than her is her hubby, Spencer Pratt.

From what I’ve seen while watching The Hills, and heard about during her brief stint on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, Ms. Montag comes across to me as nothing more than whiny, spoiled, selfish brat seeking attention in any way she can get it (heck, she even titled her debut album Superficial).

The one thing I’ll give her credit for is that she doesn’t hide the fact that the majority of the things she says and does are publicity stunts. She might not come right out and say they’re just for show, but it’s pretty obvious, and she doesn’t deny it either .

Despite how much her personality–or at least the fake persona she puts on for the media– irritates the bejeezus out of me, the most recent news surrounding Heidi (aside from publicity about the new album) actually made me feel sort of bad for her.

Ms. Montag is gracing the cover of this week’s issue of People magazine, accompanied by the headline, “Addicted to Plastic Surgery.” It was awhile ago that Heidi had very noticeable nose and boob jobs done, but that was just the beginning.

Apparently November 20th was the start of a transformation for Heidi.

In ONE day, the 23-year-old had TEN different procedures done, all for the sake of making herself “the best me.” Among the procedures were botox, nose job revision, liposuction on various parts of her body, ears pinned back, and a butt augmentation.

Wow. Now her body is as fake as her personality.

Honestly, this makes me sad. Montag claims her decision to have the procedures done was driven by teasing she faced when she was younger, but even so, it’s unfortunate to see someone who dislikes herself so much that she feels compelled to completely change her looks. If you look at the before and after pictures, Heidi doesn’t even look like the same person anymore.

Even sadder? Chances are she’ll probably end up having more surgeries. Heidi told People, “For the past three years, I’ve thought about what to have done…I’m beyond obsessed.”

She also claims that her choice to be a pop star makes her have to fulfill a certain standard of “perfect” beauty, which means as she continues to try to go forward with the career she’ll likely feel the need to have more work done in order to fit what she sees as an ideal body.

As much as I think she lacks the talent to be a singing sensation, I almost hope Heidi does manage to get a career going, just so she won’t put her body through more unnecessary procedures.
