Karl Lagerfeld thinks Adele is fat
It's possible Karl's mom never taught him not to throw stones when you yourself look like a 2000-year-old freshly unwrapped mummy, but there you have it. Karl was guest-editing Metro and, when asked about Lana del Rey, decided to use the moment to throw some evil eye at Adele by saying that, "I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer [Lana del Rey] 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."
But he didn't stop there. Being the arbiter of all that's beautiful and, especially, what's not, he decided to share his opinion about Russians: "If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly. There are a few handsome ones, like Naomi Campbell's boyfriend, but there you see the most beautiful women and the most horrible men." It's good to know that one can just turn lesbian if the selection of one's hithertofore preferred type of partners turn out to be super-ugly. It makes things so much easier.
When asked about M.I.A. and her rude gesture at the Super Bowl, he said, "Nowadays people give the middle finger quite quickly – it's not the best behavior. Everybody does that, what's new about that? It's just become a bad habit. People in magazines are 50 per cent bimbo and 50 per cent pregnant women." But equally yucky, I'm sure. But at least the bimbos are skinny.
