AMP Music Minute: Katy Perry Making Her Own “Sims” Game, LMFAO And AfroJack Team With Paris Hilton On New Album, And Gym Class And B.o.B. Headline Pepsi Bowl Jam

[photogallerylink id=135118 align=right]After tackling the real world version of her California Dreams tour,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Katy Perry[/lastfm] and Electronic Arts (EA) are bringing it back to life in “The Sims“. In fact, the 27-year old singer is so popular these days that EA is planning to bring a whole world of Katy to “The Sims” game, complete with Katy Perry-themed virtual goods and in-game content.

The partnership, which officially begins in March, will launch a collector’s edition of “The Sims 3: Showtime.” Katy will also be involved in the marketing and advertising for the “The Sims” game.

“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!” Katy said in a statement, “I always like to think of myself as a cartoon, and now I’m a Sim!”

The “Firework” performer worked tirelessly with EA game developers to create accessories, clothing, hairstyles, furniture and props for the forthcoming game expansion pack.

Katy’s version of the game includes the game, a poster and even stage props, fashions and instruments inspired by Katy and her expansive world tour.

While the game comes out in March, you can pre-order it today on the Sims website. This could be the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship between Katy and EA, who seem stoked to be teaming with the pop star.

“Today marks the start of the most integrated and exciting collaboration with any artist in the history of The Sims,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music for EA. “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.”

Back in 2006, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paris Hilton[/lastfm] revered that “Stars are Blind” in the reggae-infused pop single from her 2004 album Paris. Since then the hotel heiress has been back in the studio with a slew of DJs to recreate and expand on the short-lived success of her one week top ten hit. Key in on EDM favorite, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Afrojack[/lastfm] and local party boys,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] LMFAO[/lastfm], and here you see that Paris is going for a dance-y sound this time around.

[photogallerylink id=128777 align=right]”It’s completely different from my last album. I’m going with a whole new genre. I have Afrojack executive-producing the entire album. So we’ve just been coming up with the most incredible tracks,” she said in an interview last year. And she’s been hard at work on it as well, “I’ve been in the studio all day recording my new album,” she affirmed.

The next single slated to be released will feature childhood friends, LMFAO she teased, “I was just in the studio with RedFoo the other night, so we’re going to be doing my new single with LMFAO.”

“I’ve known them since I was a little girl. We grew up together ’cause our parents are friends, so I’m just so proud of them and all their success and what they’ve done ’cause they’ve just created this whole ‘Party Rock’ brand and it’s just so awesome.”

And Hilton isn’t holding back anymore, she’s promised her single to come out within two months and lets all the naysayers know that this music thing isn’t just a whim. “I think a lot of people don’t know that music is my passion since I was a little girl,” she said. “I’m very musically talented. This is more my thing [musically on this album], more of a club scene, more dance. … The single’s done; it’s in the can. That’s probably going to be out [within] the next month or two.”

With such talents as Afrojack and LMFAO to back her, Paris really stands a chance in this new music sound. We can’t wait for her LMFAO assisted track.

We looking out, Paris, we looking!

This year’s Super Bowl half time show will feature a live performance by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Madonna[/lastfm]. But that has nothing to do with the VH1 Super Bowl Fan Jam, which airs earlier in the week on February 2nd on VH1 obviously.

[photogallerylink id=132582 align=right]The event is also co-sponsored by the NFL and Pepsi, so it’s like the official Super Bowl pre-party, which makes sense because it features some pretty amazing A-list performers.[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] B.o.B. [/lastfm]fresh off his new single with[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Lil Wayne[/lastfm], “Strange Clouds” will be hitting the stage. As will [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gym Class Heroes [/lastfm]and[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Maroon 5[/lastfm] leader, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm]. Gym Class will also perform their latest single, which features up and coming pop songstress [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Neon Hitch[/lastfm].  The show also includes a performance by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The All-American Rejects[/lastfm].

Taking advantage of the amazing technology we get to sport in 2012, even if you miss the live airing of the VH1 Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam, you can catch all the performances online after they air at fanjam.vh1.com.
