Adele has been nominated for six Grammy Awards. Her album, "21," has sat atop the Billboard 200 chart for, oh, about 197 weeks.
Yet these achievements apparently are not enough for fashion mogul Karl Lagerfeld, who went off randomly to Metro US this week, saying of the current crop of female artists:
"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.”
Of course, considering the aforementioned accomplishments, this quote begs the question: Too fat for... what? Not for success and popularity, clearly.
Too fat, perhaps, for the 78-year old Lagerfeld to sleep with? Adele will try to live with that realization. We know it may be difficult for her.
Lagerfeld also commented on M.I.A.'s lewd Super Bowl gesture, profoundly saying of the rapper's raised middle finger:
"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."
