UPDATE-Adele ‘s loyal fan base has come to her rescue. The British songstress came under attack when Chanel’s longtime designer Karl Lagerfeld called her fat! When asked by Metro Paris about his opinion on singer Lana del Rey, Karl, 78, responded,
“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.”
Karl even found time to dish on the much talked about M.I.A middle finger incident at Super Bowl:
“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% bimbo and 50% pregnant women.”
Not surprisingly Karl received harsh criticism from readers who blasted him for taking the focus from Adele’s talent as a singer.
One commenter stated, “Saying Adele to too fat to me is a viscious insult. It is downright hurtful. She is heading for superstardom. She is just as beautiful or more beautiful than most of the thinner vocalists. Adele deserves respect, she has it all!”
Another added, “Dear Karl Lagerfeld; your attitude is UGLY. Adele Is Fat? Ahem. She is STUNNING,’ while mazzarelli30 seemed to agree, adding: ‘errrmm a little harsh I think! She is super beautiful & talented.”
What do you think of Karl’s comment towards Adele?
