"Let's Talk About Me" is an original song from the film The Muppets. After Kermit the Frog and the other Muppets approach Tex Richman and ask him to save their theater, Tex suddenly breaks into rap, boasting about his own wealth and glory and taunting the Muppets.

Chris Cooper commented on his musical number stating:

I get to do a hip hop number. Let me tell you, I had a ball. We rehearsed it with Michael Rooney, Mickey Rooney’s son, the choreographer. I have four really cute girl dancers in ’60s Vegas costumes with me. Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords wrote the music, and I cut a working track to do the scene. I get to go back in the recording studio to clean up the track. We spent hours in the studio giving this number a few Tex personal touches.[1]

On the soundtrack, there is an operatic section sung by Nathan Pacheco where Tex sings about why he hates the Muppets so much. This bridge was cut from the final film. However, the Blu-ray includes the entire song as a bonus feature. Chris Cooper sings the operatic bridge himself in this version.
