Billboard gathered several hit-making artists to ask them the most important holiday-based question: “What is the worst gift you ever received?” Naturally, there are some rather humorous replies from singers including Sam Smith, 5 Second of Summer’s Michael Clifford, Mary Lambert, and more.
Below the jump are each singer’s response and a link to the full article on Billboard.com.
“My dad got me a build-your-own tank when I was 11. I don’t think he knew I was gay at that point. I got really upset.”
“My brother’s T-shirts. His actual T-shirts.”
“My grandma buys a lot of gifts, but gets me the same shampoo each year. I don’t like it. Enough with the Black Suede. I’m done with it.”
—Michael Clifford, 5 Seconds Of Summer
“My little brother bought me boxers from [her native] Nantucket that I already had a pair of — but he bought a smaller size so that I was just insecure and pissed.”
I have four siblings, and my parents give us all matching pajamas. It’s tradition that we wear them on Christmas Eve. But when I was 14, [they] got us onesies. I was like, ‘Hell no.’ Half of us were crying.”
“My mom always puts grapefruit in [my] stocking. I like grapefruit, but why put it in a stocking like it’s a gift? It’s almost as bad as coal.”
