And we ask the questions only WE would ask!
Last month, it was our pleasure to be on hand at the premiere of The Muppets in Hollywood. It was truly thrilling to be a part of the magic, even in that small way, and the HIGHlight was when we got to speak to Miss Piggy, Walter and Kermit about working on the movie. Still, we had some burning questions for the main
man frog that we really wanted answers to, so we reached out to Kermit again, hoping he would make time for us.
And he did! Such a stand up dude!
In our interview, we ask Kermit everything from dating Miss Piggy to dating Janice from Electric Mayhem to wanting to
date meet Kim Kardashian.
You've had your ups and downs with Miss Piggy, but unlike so many other Hollywood couples such as Ashton and Demi, in the end you and Piggy always end up together! What advice would you give to other Hollywood couples about how to make it work????
Date a pig. Miss Piggy is the tenacious and relentless. I think finding someone who is so dedicated to you makes all the difference. I know that it’s kept me in our relationship long after I thought we might go our own way. The thing about Miss Piggy is that shedoesn’t take “no” for an answer. She doesn’t take “yes”. She only takes “more”.
If you could turn one human into a Muppet, who would it be and why?
How about you?.(And I mean that as a compliment.) It takes a bit of style, flair and eccentric outrageousness, and you seem to pull that off on a daily basis. But, just so it doesn’t seem like I’m trying to butter you up, I’ll come up with another name…..I know: Kim Kardashian Miss Piggy and her might clash, but it’d sure be interesting.
Has it always strictly been about Miss Piggy, or have you ever had a thing with any of the other Muppets? Perhaps Janice from The Electric Mayhem???
It’s always been me and Miss Piggy. (Trust me, it’s safer that way. If you think it’s not easy being green, you oughta try black and blue.) As for Janice, she’s always been Floyd Pepper’s main squeeze. And besides, her hallucinatory day-glo flashbacks always make me dizzy.
Have you ever thought about starting your own blog? With all your celebrity connections and newfound popularity, you could probably become a major player in the blogosphere! Would that interest you?
That’s very interesting. A frogblog. Hmm. I’ll give it some thought, even though being a “major player in the blogosphere” has never been one of my life’s ambitions. I’m happy being who I am. (And as for my family, they’re just glad I made it across the old swamp road without getting hit. )
Has your lifestyle changed after all the newfound success with The Muppets? Made any big/exciting purchases that you'd be willing to tell us about? Or have you been keeping things low key?
Frogs don’t have a lot of needs. Give me a place in the swamp with broken window screens to let in the flies and I’m a happy guy. If you’re looking for someone who made big exciting purchases, talk to Miss Piggy. She’d talk now, but she’s out shopping.
Who is you favorite celebrity to read about on PerezHilton.com?
I’d definitely have to say Miss Piggy. And I’d have to say it because I know she’ll be reading this.
Have you met Perez's Muppet friend, Howie? Would you ever consider auditioning him for a role in the next Muppet movie???
I have not yet met Howie! I’d love to! If he’s got your talent, he’s a shoo-in for a role in the next movie. Maybe he could play you in the new movie. Think of the possibilities? Think of the synergy? I think we should do lunch.
Here that Howie! You're in!!!! Yes!!!
