For some reason, the French put Karl Lagerfeld in charge of the Paris edition of the Metro yesterday, giving the Chanel designer free reign to say whatever ridiculous thing he pleases. Herr Karl’s made such a habit of ridiculousness — claiming the best way to stay thin is by chain-smoking and downing Diet Coke and consomme (see The Karl Lagerfeld Diet for reference)– that nothing surprises us anymore. He just poops these kind of brazenly tacky comments out. Like his take on Lana del Rey and Adele. Just another day in the life of a strange O-ffend-O Bot. [Styleite]

According to some research done by the karaoke website Lucky Voice, Adele is 2011′s karaoke queen. Her track “Someone Like You” accounted for 14 percent of all karaoke sung.

The worse your pitch, the better. I have never ventured into Adele karaoke territory. Maybe next time, I’ll add “Rolling In The Deep” to my roster. I think I could kill it. After the jump, the Frisky staffers’ preferred karaoke song lists. Because everyone has a go-to karaoke song(s). What’s yours? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Some men might be afraid of dating a woman whose career is made of heartbroken hits like “Someone Like You.” But nope, Adele has got a new man. What’s more is that 36-year-old Simon Konecki actually seems like someone we would want to date.

Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception. Adele was deservedly nominated for all the major awards and will likely take them all home. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s 4, which was arguably one of her best albums ever, was snubbed, as was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Jay-Z and Kanye West got some love for their Watch the Throne collab, while Lady Gaga’s third consecutive Album of the Year nod has her tied for the record with The Beatles. And then there was something about a band called Skrillex making me feel old. Those are the noms in a nutshell, with more of my thoughts displayed in the Approval Matrix at left. Here‘s a list of more nominees.
