(Jimmy Kimmel Live)

Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” featured a new edition of “Mean Tweets” with a music theme. Watch below!

Among the stars who participated were Ariana Grande, Drake, 5 Seconds of Summer, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Blake Shelton, Ed Sheeran, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and more. The guys from 5SOS seemed pretty amused by their diss, laughing at the tweet that read, “I’d rather bathe in my own vomit than see 5 Seconds of Summer on tour.” Drake looked perplexed by his, which compared the rapper to Harry Potter villain Voldermort… “with hair.” Lady Gaga read, “A Lady Gaga fragrance? Bet it smells like d*ck,” to which she answered it does. Ariana Grande laughed through, “I’d rather listen to an auto-tuned queef played on a continuous loop than Ariana Grande’s new album.” And Katy Perry didn’t object to the tweet about her: “Katy Perry has a voice that reminds me of balls covered in glass sliding down my throat. nice gal.”

Josh Groban had a particularly gross tweet to repeat, reading, “Would you rather listen to Josh Groban or have diarrhea ladled into your ear? Hard choice, amirite?” Still, the singer seemed particularly excited about his participation, tweeting before the broadcast, “I’m reading #MeanTweets on @JimmyKimmelLive tonight! Watch me DESTROY the haters by reading their words in a self deprecating manner!!”

This was the second time “Mean Tweets” exclusively featured music stars, with Kimmel tying one of his most popular segments into his newest weekly feature, “Mash Up Mondays,” in which two dissimilar artists team up for a one-of-a-kind performance. First up was Weezer and ZZ Top, becoming “Wee-Z Top.” Check out the new “Mean Tweets” below, and tell us what you think!
