Chanel West Coast has made it perfectly clear – she’s “sick” of people only liking the “hot” photos. The rapper and “Ridiculousness” star took to Instagram over the weekend with a slew of bikini pics, topping it all off with a video.
It was sun, sea, and sand for the 31-year-old on January 4 – well, that, plus a reminder of Chanel’s killer bikini body. Followers of the rapper’s Instagram will know that she took a random trip to Hawaii after losing her phone. Apparently, when Chanel’s friends suggest an impromptu trip to Hawaii, she’s right on-board.
Poke fun at her all you like for that ultra-unique laugh, but this is one music and TV face who comes with a sense of humor.
Chanel’s photos showed her lying back and flaunting her slamming body in a tiny, ruffled, and cap-sleeved bikini. The star was resting on driftwood amid pristine sands and lapping waters, with a Kauai geo-tag helpfully placing her on one of Hawaii’s most-stunning islands. A caption from Chanel mentioned the New Year, alongside less flesh-flaunting content that’s been appearing on her social media.
“Starting 2020 off right ? and PS please like my last 2 posts. I am not a model. Sick of only hot pics getting likes lmao,” she wrote.
With 3.3 million Instagram followers, West Coast is no Kardashian. That said, the “Sharon Stoned” rapper comes with one dedicated fanbase, and they turned out in full force for this post.
“Damn sis,” one fan wrote with two fire emoji.
“Fireeee” came from Italian model Valentina Fradegrada.
It also appeared that Chanel was breaking a few hearts.
“Lord have mercy Chanel, you hurt men all over,” a fan wrote.
As to Chanel’s mention of not being a model, it looked like the star faced some opposition – one fan told her she “seriously” looks “like a supermodel.”
Speaking to Hollywood Life in April 2019, Chanel revealed her body image issues, confidence, and knack for nailing those Instagram updates.
“I’m really good with my angles in pictures, but I do watch what I eat,” she told the media outlet.
“I think finding the right clothes that flatter your body is everything because in the past, I wasn’t as aware. Back when low-rise jeans were in, that was the worst thing ever for me,” Chanel continued, adding that high-rise jeans are her favorite because she has “high hips.”
Chanel is making a name for herself in music. 2019 saw the rapper release “Sharon Stoned” (which launched a lawsuit) alongside her “Old Fashioned” and “Anchors” singles. Speaking to Too Fab, Chanel revealed that being female in the hip-hop world is tough going.
“It’s hard being a woman in the hip-hop game, but I’m lucky to have good people around me who have had my back. It’s actually less about race and more about being a woman.”
Chanel received no complaints for those thirsty bikini snaps – nor, it would seem, for a super-sexy Santa lingerie photo around the Christmas period.
