Jimmy Kimmel is back with what might arguably be his most popular recurring segment. For the latest edition of “Mean Tweets” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night, he presented a musical edition, with various artists taking a look at the real (and real mean) things people are writing about them on the social media platform.

As usual, Kimmel invites his various guests to read mean tweets as they appear on the show, waiting until he has enough good ones to play in front of R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts.” This time around he got good reactions from Sam Smith, Sia, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Shelton, Haim, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Pitbull, Childish Gambino, Jason Aldean and even Mr. “Gangnam Style” himself Psy.

Reactions were mixed, with Drake looking crushed that someone thinks he looks like Harry Potter villain Voldemort with hair, while Josh Groban was both sad and a little disturbed by the tone of his “Mean Tweet.”

“Would you rather listen to Josh Groban OR have diarhea ladled into your ear? Hard choice, amirite?” he read, looking earnestly into the camera.

On the other end of the spectrum, 5 Seconds of Summer couldn’t stop laughing over someone taking the time to write, “I’d rather bathe in my own vomit than go see 5 Seconds of Summer on tour,” while Lady Gaga agreed with the tweet, “A Lady Gaga fragrance? Bet it smells like d**k.”

Iggy Azalea got off relatively easy, with her tweet reading, “I really wanna just flick Iggy Azalea’s stupid mole off her face and into the bin.”

And as for Psy, he read, “Gangnam Style is SO f**king annoying like jfc I want to shove a stick up Psy’s ass so he can’t dance anymore.”

“You can do it, but I still can dance,” he said with a laugh.
