Katy Perry has no substance to bring to a game like the Sims.
If EA really wanted to force celebrity branding on us, the least they could have done was get a celeb with a clothing line. Let our Sims wear Gwen Stefani's clothes or something. (Throw in a few pieces of furniture to match the clothing style and even I'd buy it!)
Instead we get to pay more money for a bunch of useless candy fluff that has no actual connection to the Katy Perry brand. Unless her brain is made of this junk, which makes things more understandable...

I like Katy Perry, but if EA is gonna put Katy Perry's name on it, AT LEAST put some things from her other albums (or songs for a matter of fact) because the ONLY things in this SP are from her California Gurls Music Video. At least put some from her Teenage Dream or ET on it. I think they are also ripping off Berry Sims. -___-

However, I want them to promote Charlie Sheen!
There is a difference. Madonna and H&M actually have "stuff" to put into a Stuff Pack. Katy Perry doesn't have "stuff" Katy Perry has ideas for things that aren't even original or trademarked to her as a celebrity.
And if they partnered with Charlie Sheen, I'd burn all of my Sims 2/3 games.

It's all fun and games until he "accidentally" shoots you, I suppose.
He's no Till Lindemann. I would let that man shoot me any day. (Not that he ever would.)

And Katy Perry has Stuff from her MUSIC VIDEOS! People need to show some consumption for those who like this SP. I'm not all whiny and I respect everyone's opinion. I'm offended that people automatically think I'm 12 years old begging mommy to buy it for me, when I am in my 20's have a job, a debit cart, and a tax return coming, so the price doesn't bother me. And Sims is starting to get TOO realistic, to some degree, so the candy theme makes me happy. I love sweets and could live the rest of my life, on them, on my 5 ft even, 110 lbs frame, since I'm lucky enough NOT to be diabetic.
Well I personally think that Katy Perry isn't that good of a singer. I mean seriously, am I the only one that heard her at the KCAs? She sounded HORRIFIC, it almost wanted me to chuck my TV out the window! Not only was she singing off key WHILE she had her song playing in the backround, but it seemed like she had a hard time singing it because she was practically screaming it, which made her lose breath every 5 seconds. Other than that though, she seems like a nice person though, I'll admit. And she can sound good when she's singing a song thats actually in her range.
Now for the SP, I think people are over reacting about it. I may be one of the few, but I think it's pretty cute for our younger users, even though they shouldn't be playing but I started playing the sims 3 when I was like 10 so I shouldn't be talking lol. Now I personally wouldn't waste money on it, because it's waaaayyy too cute for me, and my eyes would probably start vomiting rainbows if I played it. But still, it's not as bad as people claim, and hey, who knows maybe some people will like it.
This whole thread is tl;dr, so I'll just add my two cents.
There is nothing wrong with Katy Perry, but there is something very wrong with a Katy Perry SP for Sims 3. Especially for those (not myself) who bought the KP edition of Showtime, and now EA are offering us this? This is not a SP, this is a Store set, at best.
Why not put their efforts into something that will be useful to more than a handful of people, and offer this via the Store???
I just do not understand this direction at all, especially after the KP Showtime debacle.

I like showtime basically because now the mic is in, as time goes by and hopefully they'll fix the snags.
It can be a good thing eventually. For me I love music, I love dancing.
I hope personally that when sims 4 comes out they combine late night and showtime with of course lots of improvements. Perhaps by then they'll figure out how to put the mic in the band, or the singer could seranade their lover. Maybe they'll even have duets by then.
I think the sims ppl actually do a very good job trying to give something for everyone.
