Never one to shy away from controversy, fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld has once again said something ridiculous. Proving that he would make an excellent frenemy, he gave singer Adele a very bitchy backhanded compliment. Speaking to Metro Paris, he said, "The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice."
Karl, you krazy! Adele looks great, and also you look like a Q-tip in sunglasses. So let's not go there, shall we? He also had some "withering" criticism for M.I.A.'s decision to give the finger at the Super Bowl:
Nowadays people give the middle finger quite quickly—it's not the best behavior. Everybody does that, what's new about that? It's just become a bad habit. People in magazines are 50 percent bimbo and 50 percent pregnant women.
That doesn't even really make sense. All the more reason for people to tell him to STFU—we just shouldn't give him the finger because it'll give the old guy too much satisfaction! [The Cut]
Brad Pitt has been unusually open about his personal life of late. The newest insight he's provided came during an interview with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning. Brad wants us to know Angelina Jolie keeps it interesting in all aspects of life:
She's still a bad girl ... Delightfully so. Well, it's not for public consumption. We get one shot at this thing, as far as I know. I don't wanna have any regrets when we get to, you know, when the time's up. We try new things, and the same for our family. She's such an amazing mother. She's so inventive at home with them.
Well, it may not for public consumption, but now you have enough to let your imagination run wild. [HuffPo]

Wow, the singing specimen known as Ke$ha really lets loose in her new interview with Glamour. Here's but a taste:
I'm just very amused by five-year-old humor. Don't get me wrong: I do destroy men on a weekly basis. It's like a hobby. I'm like a praying mantis. They f—k me, and then I eat them. But who isn't amused by a giant, dancing penis? Sometimes when I'm sad, I make my assistant put on the penis outfit and bounce around my house.
At one point she says she dumped a guy because he was rude to a taxi driver, but destroying men and making your assistant dance around in a dick costume seem equally, or possibly far more, obnoxious. [Glamour]

- Speaking of Madge, the gentleman who performed that daring dance-on-a-wire during her half time show last night made quite an impression.

The brave dancer, who doesn't wear a cup, told TMZ, "I've been doing it for years ... and over time your nuts harden to steel." Also, careful placement is key: "You just try to not squish and pop them ... so you put them to one side." And a nation clutches its nether regions protectively.
