Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Blake Shelton, Ariana Grande, Drake Read Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s Mean Tweets

Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s "Mean Tweets" have gotten meaner!

Jimmy 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!

Here are some of the highlights:

@dasack: "Would you rather: listen to josh groban OR have diarhea ladled into your ear? Hard choice, amirite?"

@Bastiaantastic: "A Lady GaGa fragrance? Bet it smells like d--k."

@vinnie: "Jessie j looks like she takes giant s--ts. Stinky ones too"

@ifuseekgeorgeii: "F--k you Blake Shelton you inbred hick"

@Tyler: "Hey look Ed Sheeran is still ugly"

@Al_RamBro: "Wiz Khalifa looks like a homeless woman."

@MrMyerss: "Pitbull is starting to grow on me....kidding I hope his voice box gets destroyed by a gorilla d--k"

@osamabininyomom: "Jason Aldean sounds like his d--k got stuck in his sister."

@afrogirl23: "katy perry has a voice that reminds me of balls covered in glass sliding down my throat. nice gal."

Some participants, like Grande, couldn't read the tweet without bursting into a fit of giggles. Reading from @Mysteriousbat, she said, "I'd rather listen to an auto-tuned queef played on a continuous loop than listen to Ariana Grande's new album." Others, like Childish Gambino and Psy, offered witty replies.

Of course, the best part of "Mean Tweets" is seeing the stars' reactions--watch the clip now!

Molly McNearney, the host's wife and Jimmy Kimmel Live!'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. I mean, every comment section is a danger zone. I don't think people realize that the things they're saying actually can hurt people. And I don't think they realize people are reading the things that they say about them. So, the bit serves two purposes. One is to illustrate how terrible people are. And second, it's allowed celebrities to be self-deprecating, and I think it's funny to see these celebrities read terrible things about themselves."
