Where's Heidi Montag? Try the Hustler strip club.

heidi montag stripper Oh, Heidi Montag. She's been out of the spotlight for a few minutes since interest in her relationship with Spencer Pratt and her plastic surgeries has waned. So what has our little reality star/songbird been up to? She filled us in via Twitter from Las Vegas on Sunday.

"Going to Hustler strip club want to pick up some tips for my music video Ill do it that I am shooting next week"

Yeah, yeah. We can hear the "what took you so long?" jokes already. But apparently this is for her craft. Perhaps we should give her the benefit of the doubt?

Marisa Tomei hung out with strippers when she was researching her part in "The Wrestler" (and got a supporting actress Oscar nomination for her trouble), and Kristen Stewart tried a similar tactic for her role as a teenage stripper in the new film "Welcome to the Rileys" -- getting so in character that a club owner actually offered her a job.

Alas, we must weigh "give her the benefit of the doubt" versus "it's Heidi Montag." What do you think about Montag's move: Future VMA winner or just another bid for attention? Or both? Tell us in comments.
