There’s International music sensations and then there’s Natasha Bedingfield, who has taken “International music sensation” to the next level as the face up Electronic Arts’ upcoming Boogie SuperStar.
Who the the hell is Bedingfield? She’s that blonde who sings the song about opening up dirty windows and feeling the rain on your skin. It’s called “Unwritten.” It’s a hit. The kids are listening to it. This is a huge coup for Electronic Arts’ marketing department; this game is going to sell millions.
“Boogie SuperStar brings to life all the fun and excitement of performing,” said Bedingfield. “Being on stage is such a thrill and it’s great to be a part of an EA videogame that lets girls experience how much fun it is to express themselves and explore their own creativity by performing.”
Old news, Natasha: Carmen Electra did that in 2003 with her The Lap Dance & Hip-Hop workout DVD. We attempted to contact our tween correspondent Taylor Tiffany for comment, but school’s in session and she won’t be available until after cheerleading practice this afternoon. Rah rah, go St. Anna Prep Walruses!
Press release after the jump.
