Beth Ditto On Karl Lagerfeld: ‘People Give Him Way Too Much Power’

Madonna and Anderson Cooper have voiced their opinions on Karl Lagerfeld calling Adele “a little too fat”. Now Beth Ditto is defending her fellow songstress.

If you recall, Lagerfeld called out Adele’s weight in an interview in February, took it back, apologized with a bunch of Chanel bags, and hasn’t really spoken about her since. Well, Ditto wasn’t going to let Lagerfeld off that easy. She tells London’s Evening Standard:

“I don’t think Adele would deny that she was fat. And I bet she doesn’t. Karl Lagerfeld used to be fat himself, so you gotta think about that. He’s obviously not proud of that fact. I also think that people give him way too much power! He’s just an eccentric designer who makes amazing art but doesn’t always say the coolest shit. And the way I feel about Adele is, I doubt, and I hope, and I’m pretty confident, that she does not think about Karl Lagerfeld, ever. I bet that is the last thing on her mind at night. She’s falling asleep on her 85 Grammys and however many millions of albums she’s sold and however many millions of pounds that she has, and is just probably thinking, like, ‘You know what — all right!’”

Preach, girl. And speaking of fat Karl, peep this throwback video.
