Karl Lagerfeld says the darndest things.
Today the Kaiser is guest editing the Paris edition of Metro, and he sat down with the paper to discuss current events. He has thoughts about the Super Bowl (and MIA‘s middle finger), as well as Syria, Queen Elizabeth, and Greece’s economic woes. Here are some of our favorite bits.
On Russian women:
“If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly. There are a few handsome ones, like Naomi Campbell’s boyfriend, but there you see the most beautiful women and the most horrible men.”
On Lana del Rey:
“I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. 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.”
On Barack Obama deserving a reelection:
“Yes he does, especially because of Mrs. Obama. I’m a big fan of Mrs. Obama – and her face, I think, is magical. He would not be there without her. Mrs. Obama is not a fashion statement, but she has other things to do. My favorite thing about Mrs Obama was when she was asked if her skirt was not too tight and she answered “Why you don’t like my big black ass?” I want [Barack] Obama to win because there is nothing better anyway, and especially because of her.”
Oh, Karl. He’s never one to mince words.
