Karl Lagerfeld sat down with Metro, and gave his thoughts on everyone from Barack Obama to singer Lana Del Rey. 

"I prefer Adele and Florence Welch" the Chanel honcho said referring to controversial singer Del Rey. "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. Lana del Rey is not bad at all. 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."

Del Rey was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live three weeks ago and her performance was panned by critics and fans. 

Apparently Karl isn't writing her off, but do you think his comments about Adele went a little too far? Tell us in the comments!

    Wow, really constructive. What makes me sick is the media that even printed it. Weight issues are issues, at least with common sense we can deal with them, but we don't need judgemental old men telling us. I think she is stunning, and girl, there are many a man who liked me with a little more "to score." Don't listen to the old geezer. He is going to be nothing but bones very soon. You go girl and be proud of everything you have and your voice is stunning! You have the stuff and you are beautiful. The amount of responses should tell you that no one really cares what he thinks.

    If you are looking for a man with class I guess Lagerfeld is not that man - he's has talent but no class - men do not say negative things or gestrues about Ladies and Adele is a Lady - go for gold girl.

    "...I make music for the ears, not the eyes..."

    When Lagerfeld lost 42 kg (roughly 92.6 pounds) in 13 months in 2001, his explanation was "...I suddenly wanted to dress differently, to wear clothes designed by Hedi Slimane," he said anxiously. "But these fashions, modeled by very, very slim boys—and not men my age—required me to lose at least 40 kg. It took me exactly thirteen months." The diet was created specially for Lagerfeld by Dr. Jean-Claude Houdret, which led to a book called The Karl Lagerfeld Diet, which he promoted on Larry King Live and other shows, to success in the U.S. and around the world. He should understand more.. and not be so Rude

    A singer should be judged by their voice, not their weight. This is precisely why females and males have eating disorders and horrible self esteem. How dare he make such a personal insult about Adele. Obviously, he has no tact nor does he have manners. Classless.
