CNN's Alina Cho quote-baited the perplexingly forthcoming Karl Lagerfeld for the network's segment "Fashion Week: Backstage Pass." In the teaser video, he was called to comment on Pippa Middleton (again) and Adele (again). In regards to the latter, he clarifies (again): "I never said that she was fat; I said that she was—eh—a little roundish." Good save.
He follows up with, "But after that she lost eight kilo, so I think the message was not that bad." Positive reenforcement is for chumps, really. See the teaser segment after the jump.
