Oh, no, he didn't! German fashion designer and Chanel's creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, gave his two cents on topics like Adele and her figure — and his words were not exactly flattering!

OK! NEWS: ADELE TO PERFORM AT THE GRAMMYS AFTER UNDERGOING THROAT SURGERY E! News reports Karl was the guest editor yesterday for Metro Paris and didn't hold back! The 78-year-old was asked his thoughts on the soulful British singer as well as American 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." Then he added a zinger about her looks, too, regarding going under the knife. "In her photos, she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She's not alone with implants." OK! NEWS: ADELE RECOVERS FROM THROAT SURGERY When asked about M.I.A.'s middle-finger salute during the Super Bowl, he wasn't shy about voicing his opinion either. "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."  What do you think about his comments? Sound off below!
