Chanel West Coast made it perfectly clear today that she’s going out of her mind in quarantine. The 31-year-old rapper and “Ridiculousness” star admitted to “running out” of stairs, walls, and bushes in a caption accompanying her sizzling backyard snaps – having already captioned topless photos as “just out here, doing corona, like….,” this MTV face has been keeping her Instagram updates relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chanel updated her account on Saturday with sun-drenched outdoor shots that reminded fans of her edgy sense of style, plus of her partner status with Fashion Nova.
Chanel’s photos showed her rocking a sexy grunge vibe as she posed on stone steps and backed by reflective windows. The “Black Roses” rapper was piercing the camera as she gazed down the lens, seen flaunting her trim stomach in a graphic blue-and-red t-shirt with Japanese print writing, plus an eye-catching ripped stomach panel – washed black jeans and chunky boots enhanced the metal edge as the star also showed off long, tousled brown hair.
“Just looking cute in corner A. of my backyard. I’m running out of stairs, walls and bushes over here??? #StayHome Outfit @fashionnova,” she captioned her post.
Instagram likes aren’t a straight-forward deal with Chanel. The rapper made headlines earlier this year for ranting that her fans don’t leave her enough likes, although plenty came in today as the post clocked over 24,000 of them in an hour.
“Drippppped ? ?,” one comment read.
“Always looking cute???,” another fan wrote.
The hair chameleon who has been known to rock icy-blue, fiery red, and peroxide blonde locks did, however, garner a comment regarding her brunette state. Still a pro for West Coast.
“I like you better as a brunette… not shading the blonde or when you color it but this just feels… Idk ✌??,” the fan wrote.
Chanel has been keeping fans updated amid the pandemic that has now hit a global death toll of over 64,000. March brought the rapper baring her thong-clad booty in a sheer Gucci dress as she admitted being “bored.” Next came a series of racy, leather-strapped topless snaps as Chanel rocked pasties with an amusing “dodging corona” caption. The star has also referenced her “social distancing” while sunbathing poolside with a palm tree view.
While filming for “Ridiculousness” is paused, one element of the LOL Cartel founder’s activities has stayed steady. Influencing for Fashion Nova via the digital space is alive and well.
Chanel’s post today wasn’t a paid ad, although influencing from Instagram’s celebrity faces is largely assumed to come with its fee. As to the amount, that correlates with following, something that experts at Vox broke down, although we’ll stress these are just estimates.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!”
Chanel has 3.4 million Instagram followers.
