Cardi B has announced she’s releasing a new haircare line this year. In the process, she wants “educate” people on Afro-Latina hair.

Nike already said that they didn’t have anything to do with Lil Nas X’s “Satan Shoes,” but they took it one step further and filed a lawsuit yesterday. They sued MSCHF for federal trademark infringement. They did NOT name LNX as a defendant in the case. As we told you, the shoes are a modified version of the Nike Air Max 97s. To give them that satanic glow, they’re decorated with a pentagram pendant, a drop of human blood in the sole, and a reference to Luke 10:18, a bible verse about Satan’s fall from heaven. For the record, all 666 pairs of the modified Nikes, priced at $1,018, sold out in one minute after they went on sale Monday.
