Musicians read mean Tweets about themselves

“Common, is that the motto for your penis?”

It’s that time for A-listers to crawl into a hole and wish social media were never invented again: Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets is back and this time it’s a musical edition.

Coinciding with The Grammys, some of the biggest names in the industry are brought back to earth with a bump. Among the cruelest barbs collected via Twitter, Drake is told he looks like a ferret with a baby afro, Rita Ora that she dresses like a bag of d*cks, and Wiz Khalifa that he smells like a toilet brush.

While we draw the line at the Twitter user who dared critique the practicality of Lionel Richie’s Three Times A Lady (Richie's face says it all), the zinger aimed towards Mumford & Sons is sheer brilliance.

Sometimes the Internet is just mean.
