The Untold Truth Of Chanel West Coast


West Coast is known from both MTV's Fantasy Factory with Rob Dyrdek, which features a crew of quirky real-life (if arguably exaggerated) characters, and Ridiculousness, a show that takes on (and takes down) "the most hysterical and absurd viral videos out there," InTouch notes that "the bubbly blonde" is also famous for being "the clapback queen of Instagram and one to watch in the music industry" thanks to her ongoing efforts aimed at establishing herself as a rapper.

Along the way, she's also embraced her fair share of unexpected opportunities and, in turn, earned countless fans and indulged in an enviable social media-worthy lifestyle. However, while her work has her spending plenty of time in the spotlight and her followers probably think that they know everything about the star, there's plenty of deep track's in the burgeoning artist's life that may surprise you when it comes to the ever-intriguing and always-captivating Chanel West Coast

If you think Chanel West Coast has a memorable moniker, then you're proving that the star was right when she opted to ditch her real name for something more worthy of a successful celebrity. She told MTV in 2015, "It's funny, because growing up I knew I wanted to do music. And Britney Spears — that sounds catchy. Christina Aguilera — that sounds catchy. My real, full name is Chelsea Chanel Dudley. In my opinion, Chelsea Dudley does not sound like a rapper. So I was like, 'You know what? I'ma drop both of those names and just go by Chanel."

Kid Rock Talks Beyonce And White Chicks

Kid Rock told Rolling Stone he is “flabbergasted” by Beyoncé worship, saying, “Beyoncé, to me, doesn’t have a fucking ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’? People are like, ‘Beyoncé’s hot. Got a nice fucking ass.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.’ Doesn’t really fucking do much for me.”

He has been hanging around with the likes of Hank Williams, Jr. and Bob Seger, the latter of which wrote “F.O.A.D.” (aka, Fuck Off and Die) for Kid Rock’s new album First Kiss. He also bought his 500-acre property in Troy, Ala., from a tip from Williams — sight unseen — to go along with his houses in Michigan, Malibu and Nashville.

Photos Of The Boston Bomber

“I hope that the people who see these images will know that this was real. It was as real as it gets,” Murphy wrote in a posting on the magazine’s website. “This may have played out as a television show. A Massachusetts State Police spokesman said in a statement that the release of the photographs was unauthorized. Boston Magazine reported that Murphy had been relieved of duty hours after the photos were published.

The Aug. 1 issue of Rolling Stone, featuring a softly-lighted “selfie” of Tsarnaev on the cover, sparked a national uproar. Much of the criticism revolved around what has been described as the rock-star treatment of a suspected terrorist, a view Murphy took as well.

Murphy, a tactical photographer, made public for the first time a series of behind-the-scenes photos documenting the night of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s capture in Watertown, Mass.

Will The Show ‘Leaving Neverland’ Be A Disgrace To Michael Jackson?

I hope this show HBO is about to premier don't bring tears to both me and my kids eyes. In the letter to HBO’s CEO Richard Plepler, the estate’s counsel deem Leaving Neverland “an admittedly one-sided, sensationalist program—referred to as a ‘documentary'” and defend Jackson against the accusations brought forth by the film’s two accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

“The Estate spent years litigating with Robson and Safechuck, and had four different lawsuits by these two men dismissed with prejudice,” the estate said. “Today, Robson owes the Estate almost seventy thousand dollars in court costs, and Safechuck owes the Estate several thousand dollars as well.”

Read Full Article on RollingStone

The letter states that, two years later, after the estate turned down Robson, a noted choreographer, for a Michael Jackson-themed Cirque de Soleil show, Robson came forward with his “fabricated” allegations against Jackson.

In response to the 10-page letter, HBO said in a statement to Rolling Stone, “Our plans remain unchanged. The two-part documentary, Leaving Neverland will air as scheduled on Sunday, March 3rd and Monday, March 4th. Dan Reed is an award-winning filmmaker who has carefully documented these survivors’ accounts. People should reserve judgment until they see the film.”

The letter to HBO continued, “As for Safechuck, by his own admission, he did not ‘realize’ that he had been abused until after he saw Robson on the Today Show in May 2013 being interviewed by Matt Lauer about Robson’s newly-concocted story of abuse. All of a sudden, Safechuck realized that he had been abused."
