    Designer Karl Lagerfeld is sorry.

    He has apologized publicly to Adele after he was quoted as saying Adele is beautiful but "a little too fat" in a chat with Metro. Lagerfeld said, "I'd like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer," he said. "Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought."

    He also said, "I actually prefer Adele, she is my favorite singer and I am a great admirer of her. I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance."

    Is this a case of backpedaling? Or genuine?

    Should Adele accept Karl Lagerfeld's apology?
