(Newser) – For once, Karl Lagerfeld is actually apologizing for calling someone fat: His recent comments about Adele's physique were taken out of context, the fashion designer tells Metro in a statement. "I'd like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer," he continues, calling her his "favorite singer." "I lost over 30 kilos 10 years ago and ... know how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."

As for Adele, she probably doesn't care what Lagerfeld thinks: The Daily Mail reports that she told People, in an interview given a day after Lagerfeld's comments, that she is "proud" of her body and that it is representative of real women. "I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines," she adds. Click for more of Lagerfeld's apparently unfiltered thoughts. (Read more Karl Lagerfeld stories.)
