Jimmy Kimmel has been getting a lot of attention this week thanks to his feud and subsequent resolving of said feud with Kanye West. Much of that attention is well deserved given how fascinating his make-up interview with the hitmaker turned out to be, but for hardcore fans of the late night host, that sitdown wasn’t the only interesting thing that happened this week. Kimmel released yet another version of his incredibly popular Mean Tweets series.
As you can see from the above video, this version revolved around famous musicians. Kimmel and his producers assembled a slew of famous faces with great senses of humor about themselves like Kid Rock, Adam Levine and Demi Lovato and had each read something horribly offensive that was tweeted about them. Without question, my favorite is 2 Chainz reading the message about how much he looks like Whoopi Goldberg. Based off the look on his face, you can tell he can’t quite figure out whether to bust out laughing or fire back, which is the perfect reaction Kimmel and company are looking for.
The reason why this segment works so well every single time is because it’s nice to see celebrities who can smile about their critics. All too often they’re so obsessed with their own art they can’t behave like regular human beings and share the occasional laugh at their expense.
