Less than a week before the Grammys, some of music’s biggest stars came together to self-deprecate rather than celebrate. On the second installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s Mean Tweets: Music Edition, Drake, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea and more read out loud some of the cruel Internet comments about them, for our pleasure.
Lady Gaga noted that her fragrance, to one tweeter, “smell[ed] like dick,” while Wiz Khalifa read that he looks like a “homeless woman.” It got worse from there, with one Jason Aldean hater recommending incestuous sexual relations and one music fan not keen on Psy advocating for the insertion of sticks in places that may make dancing uncomfortable.
The last time Jimmy Kimmel Live hosted a special music edition of his recurring sketch, Demi Lovato, Kid Rock, Big Sean and more read online vitriol aimed at themselves. The late night program’s popular feature shows a variety of guests reacting on camera to the best insults people have crafted towards them in 140 characters or less.
The music-themed Mean Tweets comes on the heels of Kimmel’s announcement that his show will be hosting an entire month of live musical mash-ups in February. Performances will take place ever Monday, with guests including Weezer and ZZ Top (“Wee-Z Top”), Haim and Morris Day and the Time (“Morris Day and the Haim”) and Aloe Blacc with Black Street (“Aloe Blaccstreet”). The mash-ups start Monday night, with an as-yet-unannounced final mash-up to be revealed later.
