Shit Karl Says

By this point we've probably all seen the endless "shit ______ girls say" videos,
and although they're as hilarious as can be,
they're getting a little old. 

Enter Karl Lagerfeld.
A man who rarely uses a filter when talking to the press. 
Just last week,
the fashion legend spoke to Paris' Metro Paper about the most random topics,
and nothing was off limits - 
not Adele, not even Obama. 

Below are a few excerpts from his interview..
How amazing would it be to make a video with all these quotes?!
I die. 

On Lana Del Rey, Adele and Florence Welch:
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 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 Obama's re-election:
Yes he does [deserve to be re-elected], especially because of Mrs. Obama. I'ma 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 dress was too tight and she answered, "Why you do not like my big black ass?" [ed. note: Did Mrs. O. ever actually say this?]. I want [Barack] Obama to win because there is nothing better anyway, and especially because of her.
On the Greek economic crisis:
Greece needs to work on a cleaner image. It's a big problem, as [Greeks] have this reputation of being so corrupt. You can not be sure the money will go where it's supposed to go. They need to build trust, and that takes time too. Nobody wants Greece to disappear, but they have really disgusting habits - Italy as well.
On never voting:
I never voted in my life. I will never vote. I know too much about politics from what's going on backstage. To vote you have to believe all that garbage that they promise you, and they can not keep those promises. If someone gave me an Obama pin, I would just put it on.
On MIA giving the finger at the Super Bowl:
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.
Non-sensical thought on magazines:
People in the magazines are 50% women and 50% pregnant bimbo.

Isn't he fan-freaken-tastic?!

Happy Monday!!

No filter at all, you're right, but if old Karl were as p.c. as everybody else then you would not be writing this piece, would you? ;-) I find him quite entertaining, personally. Then again, he has never called me fat (Adele,) ugly (Russian men,)corrupt (the Greeks,) and the list goes on... Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
