Since The Muppets are back on top (what with their movie and the Oscar win for “Man Or Muppet”), it’s hardly a surprise that inquiring media outlets would quiz them on current pop culture. But who knew they were such avid pop fans?
Piggy, unsurprisingly, is all about the blond divas: “I love Lana Del Rey. And, despite our little run in, I love Carrie Underwood, too. Right now, my current fave is, of course, Adele! Beauty, talent, a natural singer – she reminds me of Moi!”
Kermit, asked for his own favorites these days, said: “I’ve always been a fan of OK Go (we did a music video with them) and Weezer (we did a music video with them, too) and Queen (we didn’t do a music video with them, but we did our own version of their classic “Bohemian Rhapsody”). And, of course, I like Green Day and Toad the Wet Sprocket, for purely amphibian reasons.”
And if that Skrillex collabo every materializes, it sounds like Piggy will be right by Kermit’s side, as usual.
“Moi simply can’t sit still when Moi hears dubstep,” she told the U.K. newspaper. “The bass is so powerful and the whole effect is so mesmerising and overwhelming! If I were a kind of music, I’d be dubstep.”
