Loud-mouthed British pop star Lily Allen will kick off an American headlining tour beginning in Houston, Texas on March 16th, with a final performance at the Coachella Festival on April 29th. She'll then return a couple of months later for a live set during the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in June.
Also today, gaming company Electronic Arts announced a contest which requires gamers to re-record the Allen hit "Smile" in Simlish, the native language created for the characters in the Sims games, and upload the versions online. The singer will then pick the top three ranked reinterpretations, and select a winner who is guaranteed both $1,390 and a possible inclusion in a future Sims 2 video game.
