Just a day after Karl Lagerfeld’s controversial comments about her weight made headlines around the world, Adele has come out fighting.
The Someone Like You singer has declared that she is ‘proud’ of her image as a representative of real women and that she’s never aspired to look like the type of women that Lagerfeld sends down his catwalks.
In an interview with People magazine, the 23-year-old says: ‘I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.’
Asked for his views on women pop stars, he said: ‘The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.’
Adele Adkins, 23, from South London, has become a huge star in recent years with her two albums 19 and 21 selling more than 23.5million copies to date.
The ‘fat’ comment by Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel, has been heavily criticised. Curves and Chaos, an LA-based blog for full figured women, wrote: ‘Are you freaking kidding me? We’re done with him and Chanel as long as he’s involved with them.’
American PR guru Kelly Cutrone added: ‘If you love Adele then boycott Chanel .’
Adele’s spokesman declined to comment on Lagerfeld’s remarks. The star insists she is not obsessed with her fuller figure or trying to lose weight.
It is thought she may have dropped the weight as a result of her recent health battle which saw her have to cancel gigs while she underwent throat surgery.
