Watch This: Celine Dion Finally Reveals Her Muppet Crush

Celine Dion Reveals Her Muppet Crush
Hint: He's Green.

I can’t believe I still haven’t seen “Muppets Most Wanted.” Not only does it feature all my favorite Muppets, it’s got two of my favorite comedians, Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey, and a cameo from my favorite singer of all time, Celine Dion. Life dream status. Anyway, while doing press for the movie, Celine answered a few important questions — including which muppet she has a crush on — in her trademark Celine style (read: a little crazy). Hopefully her hubby Rene doesn’t have jealousy issues surrounding frogs… [YouTube via Gawker]

Tina Fey On Being A Four-Eyed Sex Symbol: “I Tend To Look Like Tootsie”

“People certainly have a thing about the glasses. Liz Lemon wore them all the time, and I wore them on ‘Weekend Update’ to see the cue cards. The ones I wore on ’30 Rock’ were fake, but I kept borrowing them for years—I’d take them home and go to the movies. I finally realized they were fake, they did not have my prescription in them. So yes, [they’re] a fetishized object, but I don’t feel like I have to wear them all the time anymore. I try not to wear them if I’m wearing a gown. If I’m too dressed up with glasses, I tend to look like Tootsie.”

I heartily disagree that Tina Fey resembles Tootsie in anyway, glasses or not, gown or jeans. It’s just a case of self-distortion. But I totally understand. Some mornings, I look in the mirror and think my hair looks like a penis. In other news from Tina’s Time Out interview, she admits she has a bit of a crush on Kermit the frog and when asked if she’s a feminist, she replied, “Yeah, sure.” Gotta love the woman.

Muppet Selfies Are The Best Kind Of Selfies

Muppet Selfies Are The Best Kind Of Selfies

Selfies been getting some bad press lately, what with the revelation that teens’ selfie habits may be to blame for a massive increase in lice infestations (#YUCK). But there is one form of selfie that will always elicit smiles instead of sighs, and runs an extremely low risk of spreading lice: Muppet selfies! Yes, the Muppets finally have an official Instagram account, and they’ve been posting selfies as frantically as a 14-year-old girl who just got her first iPhone. There’s Kermit, Rizzo, Swedish Chef, and many more. No selfie from Miss Piggy yet, but I’m anxiously awaiting the glamorous, multiple-filtered masterpiece it will surely be. [The Mary Sue]

"He'll Make Me Happy"

I’ve seen “Muppets Take Manhattan” more than 50 times. Maybe more than 100. I can recite most of the dialogue by heart and know the lyrics to every song. Sometimes I open my window and scream, “Do you hear that, New York? I’m gonna be on Broadway!” If you know the movie as encyclopedically as I do, then you’ll recall that Kermit and Piggy get married at the end of the movie. They sing “He’ll Make Me Happy” and the Muppets get all verklempt.  Only it’s unclear whether or not it’s technically a real marriage because it’s part of the plot line of their Broadway show, “Manhattan Melodies.” Also, Kermit has just recovered from amnesia just moments before. This has always bothered me. For many years I’ve wondered whether or not they were legally betrothed. It turns out, this might have been bothersome to Kermie and Piggy as well, because according to production designer Eve Stewart, the pair will pronounced Frog and Pig for realz in the next Muppet movie.

I’m trying to figure out why someone would do this to their dog and what PETA/the ghost of Jim Henson would say. The doggie has Miss Piggy on one side and Kermit on the other. I almost feel embarrassed for this poor pup! Please someone tell me this is a Photoshop job? [I Am Bored]
