Karl Lagerfeld Slams Adele: 'She Is A Little Too Fat'

He may be the creative director at major design house Chanel, but does that give him the right to criticize the talented singer? Read on for more from Karl’s shocking interview.

Karl Lagerfeld is known for many things, including his opinionated comments — but his latest statement, regarding Adele, was totally unnecessary. “The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice,” Karl told the Metro. While we think Karl was totally out of line, he didn’t stop there.

In the interview, he also addressed M.I.A. and the middle finger incident at the Super Bowl, saying, “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.”

Karl went on to talk about the “very ugly” men in Russia. “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,” he said.

If Karl wanted to compliment Adele, he should have kept his opinion about her weight to herself — it’s just plain rude! Luckily for Adele, she doesn’t need Karl in her corner — she has a flourishing career and a Vogue cover on the way.

Karl Lagerfeld has a right to his opinion. Can his comments be insulting to some, yes, but that’s life. But, I do have a problem when he uses her weight as a way of stating she is undesirable or that something is wrong with her because of her weight…Not everyone believes having WHITE skin and bones as a body is beautiful!!! The world needs to wake up!

He has no rights to his opinon. It was insulting. Yes it’s life but it’s not an excuse to say bad things about people. No one has rights to bad opinions. Theres a line between gi ving an opinion and being mean. You are insulting.

He said that:”she has a beautiful face and a divine voice”. She is also fat. These are three facts about Adele: beautiful face, divine voice, fat. Why on earth are you overreacting again?!
