Karl Lagerfeld finds Adele “a little too fat”

Twitter

Asked to give his opinion on new singing sensation Lana Del Rey, the 78-year-old also shared his views on Adele.

“I prefer Adele and Florence Welch.,” he said. “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.”

The fashion mogul’s comments have caused a stir, especially since Adele has touched on the subject of her weight in the past.

“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,” the 23-year-old singer said in a past interview, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

Adele has reportedly put on a thinner frame, sparking speculation that this weight loss could be a consequence of her recent health problems as she has had to undergo throat surgery.
