"We couldn't be more excited to work with Katy and bring her distinctive talents, style and personality to the franchise's global fan base. No performer could better represent the humor and fun of The Sims brand."

"I love how you're able to play out different stories through your Sims characters - giving them different careers and watching them succeed," said Perry. "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!" Perry said.
