Lady Gaga and her date, Kermit the Frog, were by far the hottest couple of the night at the 2009 MTV VMAs -- besides Jay-Z and Beyonce, and Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. And Lord knows, Lady Gaga and Kermit conducted themselves with more decorum than Kanye West and Amber Rose, who walked the entire length of the VMA red carpet gratuitously swigging from a bottle of Hennessey.
But it turns out Kermit was merely Lady Gaga's VMA chaperone, if you will. He escorted her to Radio City in a black limo, and after Gaga hit the red carpet, Kermit took off. Kermit was basically on loan from Miss Piggy for the engagement. Calling it a one-night stand would be wildly inaccurate.
People.com talked to Kermit about his night with Gaga. Here's some of what he had to say about escorting the most talked-about pop singer on the planet to the VMAs:
PEOPLE: So how'd this date with Lady Gaga go down, exactly?
Kermit: Well, I wouldn't really call it a "date" – at least not if I don't want to end up as a coat for Miss Piggy. Y'see, I just gave Lady Gaga a ride to the VMAs, and when Lady Gaga left her credentials in the limo, I had to bring them to her. (On the off-chance security didn’t recognize her. Hey, it could happen.) Of course, after Lady Gaga and I were seen on the red carpet together, well … Miss Piggy got a little jealous. But I definitely did get a ride home – in the trunk!
Are you and Lady Gaga going to be seeing each other again?
We don’t have anything planned, but I'm sure Lady Gaga and I will run into each other again soon. That is, unless Miss Piggy gets that restraining order against her.
