Jimmy Kimmel’s hugely popular and ever-entertaining Mean Tweets segment has returned, this time with brand new music edition featuring celebrities like Sia, Iggy Azalea, 5 Seconds of Summer, Drake, Childish Gambino and a bunch more reading out loud mean things people write about them on Twitter.
Born as an attempt to shine a light on the horrible things people write about each other and people they don’t know other on the internet, the barrage of insults are turned into perfect comedic fodder and their utter ridiculousness revealed when read aloud by celebrities.
In this instalment, Sia, with her back to the camera while eating a jar of peanut butter, reads that she “sounds like she has a mouth full of s**t”, Drake reads out loud that he looks like “voldemort with hair”, 5 Seconds of Summer are told one Tweeter would rather “bathe in my own vomit” than see them on tour and Childish Gambino is forced to admit it’s fair to say he “looks like he tried to suck his own d**k a few times.”
The music edition of Mean Tweets comes a week before the 2015 Grammy Awards and comes off the back of an announcement that Jimmy Kimmel Live will be hosting an entire month of live musical mash-ups in February, featuring joint performances from Weezer and ZZ Top, HAIM with Morris Day and the Time and Aloe Blacc with Black Street.
