Heidi Montag’s music aspirations did not come to fruition — and she says it’s all because of Lady Gaga. 

In an interview on the Unpopular With Jacques Peterson podcast, the 35-year-old The Hills star candidly spoke about how Lady Gaga stalled her pop career:

“[RedOne, a producer] and I were going to pair up and we were going to do what him and Lady Gaga ended up doing, which is writing every song together and producing.”

She spoke about her demo of the track “Fashion,” which Lady Gaga wrote:

“He was like, ‘I just need to get the consent of the writer.’ And so I just thought Lady Gaga was a writer because she was a writer on the song. And he was like, ‘Hey, I’m gonna cut ‘Fashion’ with Heidi I have her in the studio, she loves it.’ And [Gaga’s] like, ‘Great. Sure, she can have that song.’ So then I recorded it and it was my song. That was the impression I was under.”

Heidi then revealed that Lady Gaga proceeded to record a version of “Fashion” for the Confessions of a Shopaholic soundtrack:

“It’s hard because people are like, ‘I love Lady Gaga!’ And I’m like, ‘I’m sure she’s great but I have not had the best encounter with her.’ 

She did not want me working with RedOne and she told RedOne she wouldn’t work with him anymore if I kept working with him. And he’s like, ‘I’m sorry. She’s my writing partner for huge things.’ We even went out to dinner with him several times and we were hanging out with him and she pulled the cord.”

Heidi claimed Lady Gaga saw her as a ‘potential rival’:

“I was in the studio with her producer before she came out, so I think she saw that RedOne is one of the biggest and best producers and writers and [thought] ‘if he takes Heidi, that’s taking my magic.’ 

He wrote ‘Just Dance’ for her, he wrote almost every song with her and produced it. So of course she’s not going to want to share that when at that moment I was a potential rival for what she was doing.”
