Reality TV starlet Heidi Montag is the next Michael Jackson -- except even better, according to her doting hubby.
The "Hills" star-turned-pop tart may have lip-synched her way through her first-ever concert at the Miss Universe pageant last weekend but she could be "the new, modern-day 2010 Michael Jackson" -- or "way bigger," husband Spencer Pratt gushed in an interview with MTV.
“The Holy Spirit now has extra Michael Jackson juice, so boom!" Pratt continued. "For all we know, Heidi gets possessed with some of that Michael Jackson divine spirit.”
The sexed-up starlet stripped down to a sequined pants-and-bra suit a la Britney Spears during the 2000 VMAs and aped a few dance moves during the performance. Even CNN's Anderson Cooper ripped into the starlet, saying she found a "fresh new way to embarrass herself."
But Heidi, at least, was pleased with the performance.
"Last night was one of the best nights of my life!!!" she wrote on her Twitter page. "I had so much fun! My first performance! Thank you God!"
Heidi, 22, gained fame for her role on the MTV reality series the "Hills" but has since tried to make her mark as a singer. Her album drops in September.
