Musicians Read Mean Tweets About Themselves


By now, you surely know the drill with Jimmy Kimmel's 'Mean Tweets' segment (catch up here). People are mean on Twitter, particularly about celebrities, so the talk show host has famous people read out their own abuse and it's funny because their lives are much better than Twitter trolls', so what do they care?

The latest installment - The Music Edition - includes Katy Perry being told she's annoying, Selena Gomez showing off a well-practiced eye roll and Lil Wayne being compared to fruit. But the highlight is Mayer Hawthorne. We don't really know who Mayer Hawthorne is but he's ok by us.

Remember, don't be mean to people on Twitter, even if you think it might possibly make you famous in a really minor way. Even if it's to The Backstreet Boys.
