You may have heard Karl Lagerfeld's name a lot around the webosphere ( I just made that word up haha) all this week. Well, the not-so-nice attention sparked from an interview the Creative Director of Chanel and Fendi did Monday with Metro World News. When asked about pop singer Lana Del Rey he responded:
“I prefer and . 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.”
Do you guys remember that saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'? Yeah. I think he missed that day in Kindergarten class haha. What upsets me the most about all this, is that Lagerfeld himself struggled with weight issues and with that being said, shouldn't he be the last person to tear someone down about weight?
"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. What I said was in relation to Lana Del Rey and the sentence has since been taken out of context from how it was originally published. I actually prefer Adele, she 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. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."
Okay, that's nice... But what about you calling her fat?
Check out this video from E! News with Adele's feelings about her body. I love Adele and that she represents curvy & beautiful women as the norm. It doesn't matter how anyone feels about you. The only opinion that truly counts is your own!
