Beth Ditto Thinks Former ‘Fat, Eccentric Dude’ Karl Lagerfeld Is Crazy

Beth Ditto isn’t done slamming Karl Lagerfeld for calling Adele “a little too fat” back in February.

Last time, Ditto said Lagerfeld was “an eccentric designer who makes amazing art but doesn’t always say the coolest shit”. We agree — he does say weird stuff a lot. Now, in an interview with Vulture, Ditto further explains:

“First of all, Karl Lagerfeld is not even sane. Second of all, he’s not the end-all, be-all of what he does. He’s really talented, but that doesn’t mean he’s right. Third, Karl Lagerfeld used to be this really fat, eccentric dude. He always had that fat kid fan with him, too. To me, only a person who was fat could get away with saying something like that.”

Sounds like Ditto’s figured out Lagerfeld’s complex. (Also, the fat kid fan thing is true.)

On a related note, the singer also shared her design aspirations:

“I really want to do my own line that’s ethically made, and I can do whatever the fuck I want with it. I also want to start an online vintage store, kind of like Re/Dress [Brooklyn’s now-closed plus-size haven]. I want to do a ‘buy the outfit’ function, and I want to show how outfits look on all kinds of different body types, even boys and butches. It’s high concept, and I don’t have time. I’d need to find someone to work with me on it, but I’m also very controlling about this, just like I am with Gossip stuff. It wouldn’t be crazy designs — it would be simple. I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys. Cheap, affordable, basic — but ethically made. Basics, you know?”
