The "Sims" life of Katy Perry

Livin' in a virtual world

January 17, 2012|By Dana Moran | RedEye

Katy Perry's firework bra is about to become even more unrealistic. reports the singer has signed a deal with Electronic Arts to collaborate with its "Sims" series, including clothing, hairstyles, furniture and props within the game. Are these two a match made in virtual heaven or what? It's been a while since we jumped into the "Sims" world, but we did some brainstorming ahead of the March release of the new title to see what might be in store for gamers. | @redeyedana

"Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" party house

A trashed bedroom is definitely the right touch to complete your newest mansion, but your teen Sims' parents probably won't be too pleased with the heaping piles of booze bottles and broken retainers strewn around the house. Blame it on Darren Criss.

Wig shop

Cotton-candy pink! Smurf blue! Katy's real-life hair colors are definitely fit for a Sim -- and really, these people are fake, they shouldn't be going with boring hues like brown and blonde in the first place. Next stop: the world's most unrealistic lingerie shop, to find a complementary outfit.

Russell Brand

What's more fun than speculating about Katy and Russell's divorce via Us Weekly? Re-creating it yourself, complete with flowerpot flinging, fit-throwing and finding the hairy Brit in bed with another Sim. He won't get away so easily this time.

Tour bus

Creating your own concert definitely should be a feature of the new game, but we'd also like to see Sims spinning their wheels around town in a massive land yacht. If we could get something shaped like an ice cream cone, that'd be a major plus, but we won't be picky.

"The Simpsons" and "Sesame Street" buddies

Yes, we know, the contracts involved here would be ridiculous, but after that one time when Katy's boobs got her song with Elmo kicked off TV and subsequently mocked with a live-action "Simpsons" segment, this combination could be a teenage dream come true. Plus, haven't you always wanted to be Big Bird?
