Los Angeles - Adele has hit back at Karl Largerfeld's "too fat" comment - insisting she is proud of her figure.The Chanel creative director - who now claims his remark was taken out of context - complemented the Someone Like You singer on her beauty in Paris' Metro newspaper earlier this week, but then appeared to accuse her of being a "little too fat".He has since apologised, but Adele, 23, says she has never aspired to be stick-thin.She said: "I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that."'Weight has nothing to do with my career'While her spokesperson declined to comment on Lagerfeld's remarks, Adele maintains that she likes herself exactly as she is. She told People Magazine: "I'd lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you're supposed to be 40 pounds lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career."Even when I was signing [a contract], most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say [lose weight] to me, they wouldn't be working with me."She is due to give her first performance at Sunday night's Grammy Awards - where she is nominated in six categories - since undergoing surgery on her vocal chords.
