Check out GossipCenter's recap on Kermit's Q&A session below. For more, be sure to visit Variety!
On Lady Gaga:
"We had run into each other at the MTV Awards a few years ago, and always said we’d like to work together. I was just very happy that she thought of the Muppets to be part of this holiday special she did. I’d also seen those photographs where she wore that cloak made entirely of Kermit pelts. Those weren’t actual Kermit pelts. They were little Kermit toys."
On his Twitter account:
"I’ve tried Twittering. I’m sort of new to it. I’m considering getting a little advice. I think being a frog, I should Twitter. I think that’s something frogs should do."
On his duet with Jimmy Fallon:
"Jimmy is wonderful. We’re going to have to make him an honorary Muppet. He loves having us on the show, partially because the studio he works in is where we got our start in the 60s in New York at Rockefeller Center. I think we have many more collaborations in the future. In fact, I don’t want to give away things too early, but I think he’s asked if I’ll be on the new 'Tonight Show.'"
On his marriage to Miss Piggy:
"Well, it’s an often-asked question. Miss Piggy and I have been together for many, many years. And we get very close to getting married in this movie with a lot of confusion. I am not going to say I won’t. I’m not going to say I will. I’m going to straddle the old proverbial fence as best a frog can do. Well, she’s oftentimes not happy about many things, that being one of them. If I spent my whole life trying to keep Miss Piggy happy, it would be a full-time job and I’d have to hire assistants."
