  • Jason Segel and Kermit were interviewed by Lauren Bans in the November 2011 issue. [1]
  • Kermit and Piggy featured in a photo essay by Alexi Lubomirski in an early 2013 issue (originally intended for POP). In an interview with The Muppet Mindset[2], Lubomirski explains that the narrative is loosely based on Richard Gere and Lauren Hutton in American Gigolo. One of the photos had previously appeared in the British movie magazine Empire, when it was "guest edited" by the Muppets to promote their 2011 film.
