The 78-year-old's opinion on Adele was brought up when asked about his thoughts on new American singer and songwriter Elizabeth Grant, better known by her stage name -- Lana del Rey.

"I prefer Adele and Florence Welch," he said. "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."

Yeah, that just happened.

Lagerfeld also spoke about M.I.A.'s star moment at yesterday's Super Bowl performance, when she flipped the bird to the camera.

"Nowadays people give the middle finger quite quickly -- it's not the best behavior. Everybody does that, what's new about that? It's just become a bad habit. People in magazines are 50 percent bimbo and 50 percent pregnant women."
