Fashion mogul Karl Lagerfeld believes that Adele has an amazing voice, but that apparently doesn’t make up for her not being model thin. One has to think it is kind of a sad world when we are looking at six Adele Grammy Awards nominations, but all Mr. Lagerfeld can focus on is the singing superstar’s weight.

Speaking to Metro US this week, fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld blatantly insulted the chart-topping singer/songwriter by calling out her curvy figure. “The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat,” Lagerfeld said, “but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”

In typical fashion mogul style, Karl Lagerfeld much prefers the stick-figure of Saturday Night Live parodied singer Lana Del Rey. “[She] is not bad at all,” Lagerfeld told Metro US. “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.”

I kind of actually feel bad at this point for Lana Del Rey, despite her flat performance on Saturday Night Live and subsequent mocking by the SNL cast and fans. First she is compared to the worst prior SNL musical performers ever, then Karl Lagerfeld calls her an ‘implant construct’ person. That poor girl just can’t win.

Honestly though, coming from a man who looks like Skeletor, any kind of insult about someone’s appearance is rather hysterical. Karl Lagerfeld may be a fashion guru, but his appreciation of true beauty is obviously severely limited.

As for Adele, she told British Vogue last year that she doesn’t stress about her weight, even if she does have “insecurities” like anyone else. “I enjoy being me. I always have,” Adele told the magazine. “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.”
