Karl Lagerfeld: 'Adele is a beautiful girl'
Needless to say, it did not go over very well on these here interwebs.
So Lagerfeld has back-pedaled a bit, telling Metro, to whom he made the first remarks:
"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."
We don't actually see how the quote was taken out of context. He said she was a little too fat. Not "Adele is fatter than Lana Del Rey" or something (not that that would be any better). But we guess he has apologized?
