Karl Lagerfeld: I never said Adele was fat

2013-06-04 21:24

Los Angeles - Karl Lagerfeld has defended his comments about Adele's weight.

The Chanel creative director - who has claimed his remarks calling the singer "a little too fat" were taken out of context - insists that although Adele is a "beautiful girl", she needed to lose weight because she was "a little roundish".

Speaking on CNN's Fashion: Backstage Pass, he said: "I never said that she was fat, I said that she was a little roundish.

"A little roundish is not fat. But for such a beautiful girl, after that she lost eight kilos, so I think the message was not that bad."

Following Karl's comments last year, Adele, 25, insisted she had never aspired to be stick-thin.

She said: "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.”

    Lagerfeld should apologise. Terrible the way that these superficial individuals try and dictate what a women should look like and make them feel insecure.

    She is fat. It doesnt change the fact that she has a beautiful voice and more money than most, but she is a role model for others, and being overweight isnt healthy, no matter who says what. Its pressure on heart,lungs, spine...thats the reality of it. Its not about needing to be stick thin, its about finding the balance..
