Karl Lagerfeld Likes Adele, Even Though She’s “A Little Too Fat”

Chanel and Fendi designer/quote machine Karl Lagerfeld stopped by the Metro offices today to chat about mundane fashion-y topics like the Greek economic crisis, racism and M.I.A.‘s middle finger. However, our focus is on a statement the designer made regarding Adele: when asked about much-maligned singer Lana Del Rey, he replied in typically unapologetic fashion:

“I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer she is not bad. The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She’s not alone with implants.”

Oh, dear.

Lagerfeld says a lot of other (less shitty things) that are equally eye-popping in the interview, like “People in magazines are 50% bimbo and 50% pregnant women,” and this one with equally offensive implications, “If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly.”

      Karl stick to what you’re doing, and not even that. My girlfriend likes Adele. She put on ’21′ this past weekend. Yeah, very soulful. Man, her ‘He Won’t Go’ and her re-make of The Cure’s ‘LoveSong’. Really deep. She’s the perfect weight. :)

      Yeah, and Karl is a little too old and ugly.
