Beth Ditto and Karl Lagerfeld not having row
The Gossip singer Beth Ditto has insisted she is not having a row with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, despite reports that the two are at loggerheads.
The outspoken singer recently gave her view on the designer’s controversial comments about Adele. Karl branded the British singer “a little too fat” and Beth was happy to jump to Adele’s defence saying Karl, who himself slimmed down after a strict diet, was “talented but not right” and used to be a “fat, eccentric dude”.
Beth has no regrets about voicing her opinion on the matter, but has played down speculation of a feud with Karl.
"Now there's this weird thing with Karl Lagerfeld, which I literally just learned about an hour ago — people are like, 'So you called him old and skinny?' And I'm like, 'Well, what is he? Young and fat? He's not!'" the singer told ‘Into the Gloss’.
The voluptuous singer is happy with her body and has no interest in conforming to the idea of a perfect pop star. Beth likes to show off her fuller figure in skimpy outfits and refuses to consider changing her appearance.
"I have no desire to stay super-thin, super-perfect,” she added. “And when I grow up, I want to look like Patti Smith, that's how I feel exactly. Moustache and everything, that sounds great."
