Miss Piggy just showed Rihanna that she’s the original Bad Girl (better make that “Bad Sow”). The Muppet recently proved that she can be really mean when she doesn’t get her green by performing her own version of RiRi’s “B**** Better Have My Money,” and her video is going viral.
Vulture teamed up with Adam Schleichkorn (a.k.a. Mylo the Cat) to create Miss Piggy’s “BBHMM” remix. Instead of taking a page from Rihanna by doing drugs and getting covered with blood, Miss Piggy abuses her beloved Kermie by getting very physical with the frog. Miss Piggy’s piggy bank is empty, and she thinks Kermit needs to find a way to fill it up instead of sitting around all day sipping tea (but that’s none of your business).
Miss Piggy’s “Better Have My Money” music video features numerous outfit changes, Rowlf tickling the ivories, a LeBron cameo, and a jailbreak. Miss Piggy also gets in a nasty fight with another female pig after she destroys Kermit by flinging him across the room. You can check out Bad Girl Bacon’s “BBHMM” remix below.
If you’re a fan of Muppet music videos, you might also enjoy watching Rowlf belting out Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend” in another Mylo the Cat creation. Miss Piggy makes a cameo appearance as a porcine princess from the U.S. nation.
It’s amazing that Miss Piggy can find the time to record a Rihanna cover now that she’s busy with her new TV series. The divine swine with swag for days is starring in ABC’s new series, The Muppets, and it looks like her diva attitude is only going to get worse once it hits the airwaves — according to Variety, The Muppets Comic-Con panel received louder cheers than that of The Walking Dead.
The Muppets is a mockumentary-style TV series, and it revolves around Miss Piggy. She’s become the first pig to host a late-night talk show, and she and Kermit have called it quits. Her former lean, green lover is now dating another pig named Denise, so this will likely cause a lot of tension. The other Muppets will have various jobs working on Miss Piggy’s late-night show, but the series will also explore what they do when they’re not getting ordered around by their demanding boss.
Miss Piggy and her pals will try to take over late night during primetime when The Muppets premieres Tuesday, September 22, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Maybe the “B**** Better Have My Money” video will convince Rihanna to sign on as one of Miss Piggy’s first talk show guests.
