Katy Perry, Now On a Sims Game

Electronic Arts today announced its collaboration with Katy Perry for The Sims. The life-simulation game will feature Perry-themed content and virtual goods such as clothing, hairstyles, props and furniture. The Collector's Edition expansion pack for The Sims 3 Showtime will be out in March.

Steve Schnur
, worldwide executive of Music for EA, explained the company chose Perry because she'd been popular "for several years." He also said the song "Hot and Cold" (featured in The Sims 2 series) "became the most popular Simlish music video to date.

In a statement, Perry said, "I love how you're able to play out different stories through your

Sims

characters -- giving them different careers and watching them succeed. It's cool to see the

Sims

' stage performances in

The Sims 3 Showtime

decked out just like my California Dreams Tour -- even my cotton candy video screens are in there! I always like to think of myself as a cartoon, and now I'm a Sim!"

We heard Perry's parents were setting her up with Denver Quarterback Tim Tebow. . . . Does that mean Tebow will have a Sims cameo as well?
