As part of his guest editorship with the Paris edition of Metro World News, Karl Lagerfeld gave his two cents on a couple of current events – and Adele’s size happened to be one of them.
After discussing his view on hot singer Lana Del Rey compared to his own personal preferences, Karl happened to slip up and say some unnecessary comments about Adele’s weight. Take a look below.
On Lana del Rey:
“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.”
On Barack Obama deserving a reelection:
“Yes he does, especially because of Mrs. Obama. I’m a big fan of Mrs. Obama – and her face, I think, is magical. He would not be there without her. Mrs. Obama is not a fashion statement, but she has other things to do. My favorite thing about Mrs. Obama was when she was asked if her skirt was not too tight and she answered, “Why you don’t like my big black ass?” I want [Barack] Obama to win because there is nothing better anyway, and especially because of her.”
On being politically correct:
Be politically correct, but don’t become a bore for that. People should be sensitive in these matters, but not make so much noise. Be politically correct, but do we have to know your opinion?
Some opinions are just uncalled for; we’re sure Adele knows her size already and pointing out the obvious just isn’t a good look, Karl.
