Music Stars Read Mean Tweets on "Kimmel": Katy Perry, Ariana Grande and More



    The "Mean Tweets" segment on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" has gotten meaner!

    Kimmel's late-night show aired its second "Music Edition" of the recurring segment Monday. This time, musicians who read nasty comments about themselves included Josh Groban, Drake, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Jessie J, Blake Shelton, Haim, Wiz Khalifa, Ed Sheeran, Iggy Azalea, Pitbull, Sia, Childish Gambino, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Jason Aldean, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Katy Perry and Psy.

    Some people, like Spears and Perry, have participated in past compilations. Others, like Sia and 5 Seconds of Summer, read mean tweets about themselves for the first time -- and it was hilarious!

    Some participants, like Grande, couldn't read the tweet without bursting into a fit of giggles. Others, like Childish Gambino and Psy, offered witty replies. Of course, the best part is seeing the stars' reactions.

    Molly McNearney, Kimmel's wife and the show's co-head writer, created the "Mean Tweets" segment in 2012. "I wanted to provide that to all the celebrities on Twitter," she told Entertainment Weekly last year. "I think it's kind of therapeutic for them to realize that they're not alone. Also, I think it really illustrates how mean and cowardly and toxic people are online."
