Britney Spears, Drake and Iggy Azalea were among the music stars who agreed to read mean tweets about them as part of an occasional skit on U.S. late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The segment, which aired on Monday's show (02Feb15), also featured Sia, Katy Perry, Pitbull, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Josh Groban.

Smith found his tweet from one Twitter user mildly amusing, reading: "Trying to use the word 'hate' less often. Here goes: I thoroughly dislike Sam Smith". The singer smiled and said, "Well done!"

Ed Sheeran and Wiz Khalifa also stifled laughter as they read, "Hey look Ed Sheeran is still ugly", and "Wiz Khalifa looks like a homeless woman", respectively.

Sia ate peanut butter as she read her mean tweet with her back to the camera and chuckled after stating, "Sia sounds like she has a mouth full of s**t."

And Spears smiled as she read, "The weather in New York City right now is like a young Britney Spears: pretty hot, kinda gross".
