Perhaps realizing how his comments might not be well received by Adele’s legions of fans, he quickly backtracked, insisting that she has ‘a beautiful face and a divine voice.’
In the interview with the UK’s Metro, Lagerfeld talked about Lana Del Rey, before talking about Adele.
‘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.’
He seems to prefer Adele’s music, but Del Ray’s looks:
‘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.’
Adele has often spoken freely about her fluctuating weight, but is happily embracing her fuller figure, no matter what others like Lagerfeld think:
‘I enjoy being me; I always have done. I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just don’t want that in my life. It’s just never been an issue – at least, I’ve never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue. I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.’
The singing sensation has indeed lost weight, though to be a result from her recent health battle. She had to cancel concerts, before undergoing throat surgery.
