German Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has started quite an uproar with singer Adele after making comments about her physique, but Adele fans don’t worry, the singer who doesn’t give a damn about what anyone thinks of her image and has fought back.
First, let’s go back to Lagerfeld’s comments which started a storm of chaos earlier in the week when he stated “I prefer Adele and Florence Welch [to Del Rey]. 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.” Does anyone know how Lagerfeld used weight at a sequitur? Anyone? Fantastic, neither do I.
In response to his comments singer, Adele told People magazine the following: “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”
Adele is no stranger to being asked about her weight in the face of stick thin pop stars making their buck by prancing around with their auto tuned tracks. In the past she’s said, “I love food and hate exercise. I don’t have time to work out. I don’t want to be on the cover of Playboy or Vogue. I want to be on the cover of Rolling Stone or Q. I’m not a trend-setter. I’m a singer. I’d rather weigh a ton and make an amazing album then look like Nicole Richie and do a shit album. My aim in life is never to be skinny.”
In lieu of the drama Karl Lagerfeld has apologized and said the comments were “out of context”. He went on to tell the Metro New York newspaper: “I’d like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer. Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. Adele is my favorite singer and I am a great admirer of her. I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance.”
Do you think Lagerfeld is genuine or is he just eating his words and ducking out of some bad press? Weigh in!
