Getting a shout out from Cardi B. brings Christian Louboutin back to his roots.

The legendary shoe designer, who created the red-bottomed trademark that shoe lovers covet, doesn’t know much about rap.

When speaking with the New York Times about Cardi B’s recent success with Bodak Yellow, he had to admit that he doesn’t know much about her other than her distinctive hairstyles.

Although he’s “not a big rap person,” he has heard of Cardi’s hit single, where she raps, “These expensive, these is red bottoms/ These is bloody shoes/ Hit the store, I can get ’em both/ I don’t wanna choose.”

Fashionistas might have assumed that Christian wouldn’t have liked the mention, but they would be wrong! He built a name off of performers like Cardi, who started out as a stripper.

“In a way, it comes back to some of my origins,” he said. “The first shoes I ever designed were for showgirls, people on stage. Showgirls have a kind of attitude—they’re driving forces.”

And, if he ever had a chance to meet Cardi, Christian said he would be open to it, musing, “Why not?”

    Christian Louboutin Appreciates Mention On Cardi B.’s ‘Bodak Yellow’ MY FOOT!!!
    In a few months from now we will certainly hear a news story about how Christian Louboutin is not interested in black customers. It happened with Timberland, POLO, Hillfiger and others… When I want to buy clothes I go with black owned clothing businesses. This site https://www.blackownedclothing.com/black-clothing-designers has dozens of them and they definitely want our business. If you ask me the fashion is better anyway!
