German designer Karl Lagerfeld recently proved he's got some knowledge about the up-and-comers in music when he invited Azealia Banks over for a private performance. While in the Metro offices in Paris, he shed some more light onto his musical taste, and he doesn't hold back with his opinions.

On Lana Del Rey, Adele, and Florence Welch:

"I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer [Lana Del Rey] is not bad.The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She's not alone with implants."

On M.I.A. giving the middle finger during the Superbowl halftime show:

"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% bimbo and 50% pregnant women"
