Mash-ups featuring The Muppets doing hip-hop classics is nothing new. There was Rowlf doing Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend”, the Beastie Boys cover and Gonzo singing “The Humpty Dance,” but none have felt quite as perfect as the latest iteration featuring Miss Piggy singing Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.” (Only Dr. Teeth getting in touch with his inner ODB for “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” came close to this phenomenon before.)
Vulture has teamed up with Mylo the Cat, the mastermind behind the playful mashups, and in the latest video, avowed feminist Miss Piggy seems to lip sync to Rihanna’s brash, bad-girl anthem. If there was any doubt that Miss Piggy would ever stand for not getting her due, this video does away with that notion in fine style. Miss Piggy and her Moi First attitude is always gonna get paid.
