Putting Rumors To Bed: Kermit & Lady Gaga

Kermit the Frog and Lady Gaga exchanged a kiss at the VMAs, however they are just friends.

There has been plenty of fall-out from the VMAa and not all of it was from Kanye's ultra-classy theft of Taylor Swift's limelight (and showbiz innocence). Frankly, the move has been done before and the Ol' Dirty Bastard did it better. Read: Kanye's VMA Rage: Does Amber Rose Bring Out Worst?

And we're not here to discuss the Katy Perry's make-out sesh with funny fokker Russel Brand (thanks, Daily Fill). 

We're here to discuss Lady Gaga (not that rumor) and Kermit The Frog. Per an interview with People (via TodayShow.com), the green machine is absolutely not dating the eccentric pop star.

As you may recall, Kermit and Lady Gaga were seen together at the VMAs and a photo of them kissing has been circulating the interwebs. Kermit insists that the kiss was a friendly one and more of a "good luck out there, kid" kind of thing. Additionally, he says that she invited him to the awards show and while he likes her eclectic style, he really appreciates how down-to-earth she is.

While Kermit says that his long-term relationship with Miss Piggy isn't strained, he hinted that it's not as straightforward as we'd think. You may remember a bit of a kerfuffle involving a suspected love triangle between Miss Piggy, Jessica Simpson and Kermit. And there was a time in the 1980s in which, because of "amnesia," Kermit and Piggy split but the incident ended "happily" as Kermit was tricked into marrying Miss Piggy.

And this is to say nothing of the alleged abuse in their relationship. We would not be terribly shocked if the exceedingly popular Muppet was considering his options. Personally, I wonder if a break like his 1984 "amnesia" episode would do wonders for Kermit and Miss Piggy's relationship. I think a fun trip to St. Tropez with, say, Russel Brand could really re-energize Miss Piggy and make her realize the gem she has in Kermit after Brand makes a number of "Swine Flu" and "porking" jokes.

If it comes down to it, are you on Team Piggy or Team Gaga in a battle for The Frog's heart?
