Quote of the Day: Lady Gaga on Her Weight Gain

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty

Lady Gaga

"I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet — my mum called me and was like, 'Did you gain weight?' — everybody was telling me about it, and I didn't really care. But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing, and the election — I just thought, ‘This is ####### ridiculous.’ I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home? ... Quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. [But] Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of women."

- Lady Gaga discusses her recent weight gain.

Quote of the Day: Karl Lagerfeld on Anorexia

Karl Lagerfeld

"I'm sorry to say that it's a subject I consider ridiculous for several reasons; the story with the anorexic girls - nobody works with anorexic girls, that's nothing to do with fashion. People who have that [anorexia] have problems to do with family and things like that... There are less than 1 per cent of anorexic girls, but there more than 30 per cent of girls in France - I don't know about England - that are much, much overweight. And it is much more dangerous and very bad for the health. So I think today with the junk food in front of the TV it's something dangerous for the health of the girl."

- Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld on an issue in the fashion world that has been addressed by both models and designers in the industry.

And we have every right to love the way they look. So when it comes to cosmetic surgery, if there’s something you don’t like about your body and a cosmetic alteration will help, then why not?"

Karl Lagerfeld

“Whoever has time, because I couldn’t care less.  Today nobody’s really found the real story… I don’t have too much consideration for the poor people who try to write that book... I have nothing to say. But it’s interesting that people in fact are lazy. If they worked hard they would find interesting things. Nobody finds it! So I’m in a position to say ‘#### you, you’re all lazy pigs.’ And I certainly won’t help them!”

Quote of the Day: Daisy Lowe on Karl Lagerfeld, Curves

Daisy Lowe on ASOS

"My dream is to see a lot more female shapes in ad campaigns when I look through magazines...my friend was working with Crystal Renn and said she thinks she's only got a 38-inch hip. Karl Lagerfeld said he was going to embrace her womanly shape and then he just put her face on the ad campaign. Girls are starting to have tits in pictures, but I think it still needs to be about the curve... Real women have hips and an arse, yet loads of models in shows seem to have neither."

-- Size 4 model Daisy Lowe on wanting to see more womanly curves on the runway.
