We stand corrected: Karl Lagerfeld does care if we think he’s a mean old man. After the general outcry over his statement that Adele is “a little bit fat” in Monday’s Metro, he spoke to the global newspaper again on Wednesday to
apologize clarify. “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,” he said. Interestingly, he was serving as “global guest editor” of Metro at the time. We guess he didn’t take that role too literally, and you know, actually look at stories before they went to press.
“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,” Lagerfeld continued. “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’re guessing there hasn’t been a real Lana Del Rey outcry yet.
