Katy Perry Brings Her Sweet Tooth To ‘The Sims’
Katy Perry is sweetening up life for “The Sims.” The pop star is teaming up yet again with Electronic Arts in “The Sims 3: Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats” game, available this June. Players will enter a Perry-inspired “Candyfornia,” where they can outfit their Sims in an array of Perry’s clothing and hairstyles and turn their neighborhoods and homes into a sweet-tooth’s dream.
“I loved being a part of all the creative process … which outfit is my Sim going to have, what kind of hair color. Because when we were creating it together, I had pink hair, now I’m blue,” Perry told MTV News in February. “But you now have so many options.”
“Sweet Treats” also features colorful items to enhance the Sims’ surroundings, including a waffle-cone picnic table, cupcake-themed guitars and Perry’s favorite, a banana-split sofa.
“It’s more costumes, more props, more ‘Candyfornia,’ is what I call it, to add to your ‘Sims’ game,” Perry said. “What’s awesome about this is that some of the pieces that they had made and sketched for the ‘Sweet Treats’ package are so cool that I think I’m going to get them made. There’s this one banana-split sofa that you’re sitting on the banana part and the rest of the frosting and all the ice cream, it looks like it’s melting … so cool! I’m like, ‘Where can I pull all this crazy stuff?’ ”
And while players are creating their candylicious world, they will have the pleasure of listening to Perry’s hit song “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” which she recorded in the Sims’ official language, Simlish.
“I’m recording another song in Simlish. I’ve decided to record ‘Last Friday Night’ ’cause it’s really fun,” Perry said. “It seems to be a favorite of all the ‘Sims’ gamers.”
This isn’t the first time that Perry has done a Simlish song. She recorded “Hot n’ Cold” for “The Sims 2: Apartment Life.” But even though she’s recorded two songs in the Simlish language so far, by no means does she consider herself an expert.
“Expert? No; it’s hard,” Perry said of singing in Simlish. “I have a cheat sheet, so when I go in and record ‘Last Friday Night’ in Simlish, I’m going to be following everything. It kind of sounds like you’re speaking in tongues, which I grew up doing anyways, so I feel I have a bit of an advantage. It’s not an easy feat.”
Perry is also featured in “The Sims 3: Showtime,” which hit stores last month.
