We're not at all ashamed to admit that we love Katy Perry. Combined with the addictive The Sims 3, we're pretty sure EA is about to hit their target demographic over the head with a money-guzzling cudgel.

Check out the video for a behind-the-scenes look at Perry's role in The Sims 3: Showtime, the latest and sixth expansion for the game, which launches tomorrow. Your Sims will choose the role of singer, acrobat, magician or DJ in a new area called Starlight Shores, rising from humble beginnings to become mega-stars, just like Perry. Except her fame is in real life, and you'll still be sitting in front of your computer.

Hardcore Katy fans might also want to check out the Katy Perry Collector's Edition, which comes with special in-game outfits, props and objects as well as a real life poster for you to put on the back of your door and gaze at every night as you're falling asleep.
