According to sources, they just signed a contract with rocker grrrl Gwen Stefani!!!!
If there's one thing we appreciate about The Muppets, it's that they never shy away from the spotlight!
So, to prepare us for the release of their super sweet sequel, Kermit, Bunsen, Gonzo, and the whole Muppet crew plastered their Instagram account with a sh*t ton of SUPER cute selfies!
Awwww!!! In cased you skipped algebra in middle school, Muppets + Selfies = AMAZEBALLZ! The pics are seriously adorable!!!
In Ms. Piggy's selfie (above), she boasted:
This is SO tragic!
John Henson, Muppets puppeteer and son of Jim and Jane Henson, passed away on Friday after suffering a massive heart attack. And on Valentine’s day, of all days!
The puppeteer’s family let people know on Facebook, telling their fans:
“It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter. John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned.”
Ugh! Just completely tragic! He was so young!

Miss Piggy is one
busy lucky hog!
Created specially for the retailer’s broadcast event Red Carpet Style — Live From L.A., happening during Oscar weekend. How fitting!!
Miss Piggy’s special edition tote will be available for pre-order the week of February 28th, the same day she’ll be stopping by QVC for a special broadcast.
Knowing her, she’ll show up dressed to the nines!
Or maybe she’ll even find an ensem matching her carry-all. That would not shock us one bit!
Catch a peek of her wild design in the gallery (below)!
The Muppets get to have all the fun they want. And apparently all the high-fashion too!
And with a wedding to take place, that left the designer with the hard task of creating a gown fit for a diva!
Miss Piggy divulged:
"Vivienne Westwood is fabulous—just like moi. When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog."
Well, it looks like Vivienne did an AH-maze job with the corset detailing and tulle veil of Piggy’s Ivory Court wedding dress.
We especially adore her crystal stylings!
Vivienne even revealed to Miss Piggy via Harper’s Bazaar:
Go big or go home!
Jimmy Fallon is all set to take over The Tonight Show on February 17th, but not before breaking some records and having fun!
The Late Night host brought in 6.6 million viewers for his last show, and according to a report, he “set series records for the largest overall audience on any night of the week and highest key demo rating for a regularly scheduled episode.”
Also, it was the most total-viewers for Late Night since June 25, 1993 (7.5 million) when it was David Letterman's exit episode too!
So, how did he leave?
With the help of The Muppets of course
In this new retaliatory ad, Missy Piggy responds to being left out of the big Super Bowl ad with Terry Crews. You do NOT mess with this pig, Toyota!
Maybe this was a game time decision by Kermit to leave her on the bench…who knows? Maybe Terry and Piggy have a romantic past?
While you ponder human-pig relations, ch-ch-check out this diva throwing shade (above)!!!
Here they are, folks: the real reasons you watch the Super Bowl!
We've been collecting all the released and leaked ads leading up to the big game, and we've put them all in neat little place for you so you can watch them all!
The only problem is, you're gonna have to work on your acting — you'll need to pretend to be surprised by them in front of all your friends!
First watch one of many Dannon Oikos yogurt ads with John Stamos (above) and THEN, watch 'em all AFTER THE JUMP!!!
