Adele insists she’s happy with her weight, despite fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld‘s recent comments that she’s ‘too fat’.

‘I’ve never seen magazine covers or music videos and been like, “I need to look like that to be a success”,’ Adele, 23, tells Anderson Cooper on US show 60 Minutes.

‘I don’t want to be some skinny mini with my tits out. 

‘I really don’t want to do it and I don’t want people confusing what it is that I’m about.’

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld caused outrage on Twitter after he made comments about Adele‘s weight this week.

‘The thing at the moment is Adele,’ Karl, 78, wrote in a free French newspaper that he was guest editing.

‘She’s a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.’

Karl has since claimed his words were ‘taken out of context’ and that he is Adele‘s ‘biggest admirer’.
