Beth Ditto may be one of the few people in the world who isn't afraid to say she thinks Karl Lagerfeld is, er, insane. A few weeks ago the outspoken singer came out in defense of Adele, whom Karl Lagerfeld had called "a little too fat." He apologized, but Ditto still went after the designer, saying that people "give him way too much power." And she's not done telling people how she feels about the whole situation.
When asked about Karl Lagerfeld and her previous comments on the whole Adele matter, Ditto told Vulture:
"First of all, Karl Lagerfeld is not even sane. Second of all, he's not the end-all, be-all of what he does. He's really talented, but that doesn't mean he's right. Third, Karl Lagerfeld used to be this really fat, eccentric dude. He always had that fat kid fan with him too. To me, only a person who was fat could get away with saying something like that."
You gotta love that she's so unfiltered and un-PC. And speaking of plus size issues, Ditto is thinking about making a foray into design herself. She had done a plus-size line with UK retailer Evans, but told Vulture, "I wish that there was more control in that line, but there wasn't." She was also not thrilled that the line was produced in India and said she wants to do "my own line that's ethically made, and I can do whatever the fuck I want with it." She said, "I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys." She also wants to start an online vintage shop, where she would show outfits on different body types, including "boys and butches."
Beth Ditto and Karl Lagerfeld should do a collaboration collection. It would be spectcular.
