Jimmy Kimmel jokingly put a damper on the music industry’s big night with the latest installment of “Mean Tweets — Music Edition,” which aired after the Grammys Monday.
The bit opened with Best New Artist winner Meghan Trainor, whom someone said, “is like if the sassy girl you used to work with at Express just randomly had a singing career.”
Two other Grammy winners were featured in the bit: Little Big Town (“I’d rather listen to a turd hitting the toilet than your new songs”) and Ed Sheeran (“Why TF are you happy on your records? You’re a fucking ginger… Be sad”), as well as MusiCares Person of the Year recipient, Lionel Richie: “If Lionel Richie wants Once, Twice Three times a Lady — than he’s a picky Motherfucker.”
Other non-Grammy-related highlights include a confused James Taylor, a scowling Charlie Wilson and an amused Mumford & Sons, who were told, “I love how music takes you away to another place. Like Mumford & Sons is playing at this restaurant so now I’m going to another restaurant.”
