Britney Spears wants back into your life–or at least your phone. On April 29, People reported that singer is the latest pop star to get her own mobile video game app. According to People, the app is part of a five-year deal between Spears and Glu Mobile and will be released sometime in 2016.

Glu (GLUU) is the developer that brought “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” to the masses, an app that allows players to join the reality show star and budding mogul “on a red carpet adventure.” The temptation to roll one’s eyes at this technology is powerful, but the app made $1.6 million in its first five days of release, according to The New York Times, so there you go.

Britney and Kim are hardly the only celebrities with their own apps. GLU has also announced deals with Katy Perry and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, while the new “TayText” app allows users to text others using lyrics from Taylor Swift songs. There are also apps out there for such stars as Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus, so clearly there’s a market for mobile games based on female celebrities, provided they have the star power to inspire one.

Given this new reality, what other famous women deserve their own mobile video game apps? Here are a few names for developers to consider.
