“Bodak Yellow” going number one will go down as one of Hip-Hop’s biggest moments of 2017. Christian Louboutin was recently asked about Cardi’s infamous bloody shoe reference and he wasn’t sure who she exactly was.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, the brain behind “Red Bottoms” admitted that couldn’t pick out the Bronx bombshell in a crowd with certainty. “She has the hair like that?” he said, waving his hands around chin level. “She’s a rapper? This ‘Yellow’ song?”
One of his friends recently played Christian the song and showed him the video but his feedback remained indifferent. “I don’t know much more than that, to be honest.”
This is not the first time nor last that his brand has been mentioned in popular culture. The heels have become a staple in women’s fashion garnering mentions throughout Sex In The City, Real Housewives of Atlanta and almost every female-targeted Rap song since 2009.
But the wealth of free press doesn’t have Christian acting brand new. “My job is creating beautiful shoes. The rest has became what it became” he explained.
Even though Louboutin may not have Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2 on rotation (“not a big rap person”) he says he would meet with Bardi if the opportunity was presented to him (“why not?”). Let’s hope for the culture this happens soon.
