Shock jock Howard Stern is receiving criticism for his on-air commentary toward female guests on his radio show over the years.
Stern has drawn the ire of social media with a compilation of resurfaced interview clips that feature Stern’s conversations with numerous female celebrities, including Lisa Marie Presley, Mariah Carey, Courtney Love, Sofía Vergara and Anna Nicole Smith. In the clips, Stern can be heard making provocative comments to his guests.
“You wearing panties? What do you wear, a thong?” Stern asked Presley in one clip.
When asked by Stern how she looks in her underwear, Presley replied, “I don’t know,” to which Stern said, “You know how you look.”

Stern commented on Love’s body when she appeared on his show wearing a cropped tank top.
“Ooh yeah, you got a nice stomach,” Stern told Love in the clip. “Just stand there for a second, let me look at you. Body’s hot.”
Despite Love’s attempts to redirect Stern’s attention, the radio host continued with his raunchy praise of her physical appearance. “I would do a lot to that,” he said, referring to Love’s body. “I could make you see things.”
During his conversation with Smith, Stern commented on the actress’ weight as it related to her fashion choices.
“The way you dress and stuff, I don’t think you’re aware that you’re a heavy-set woman,” Stern told Smith, to which she replied, “I know I’m a big woman, so what?”
Stern then asked Smith if she could step on a scale for “an over/under” to determine if his estimate of her weight was correct. Smith promptly refused Stern’s request.
