Kermit the Frog is 50, and while he says in a new and revealing interview that he’s got no idea what he’d like for his birthday, PopWatch would like to boldly suggest some enterprising network give the skinny green dude his own series. C’mon, if a bunch of washed-up reality contestants, Hulk Hogan, and even Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends get to be on TV every week, why not Kermie, a talented singer and proven ratings draw?
I mean, he doesn’t look a day over 25 — even though he’s reportedly never seen the sharp end of a Botox needle — and the years haven’t dulled his patented quick wit. ”Listen, you can send a stripper to my party if you like,” he tells the Associated Press. ”It won’t affect me because, as you can see, I am appearing naked, which I always try to do because I’m kind of a natural guy.”
Hey, with that kind of attitude, maybe he ought to link up with 40-year-old Cosmo as the next in its long line of hunky celebrity centerfolds. That is, if he can get permission from Miss Piggy. Hi-YA!
