Chanel West Coast is big-time shaking up her famous name and becoming Chanel East Coast. The 32-year-old rapper and Ridiculousness star has been making headlines for ditching her L.A. base for Miami Beach vacations this year, but it's looking like the MTV face isn't set to limit herself to Miami's hotel rooms. Earlier this week and posting for her 3.5 million Instagram followers, the "No Plans" rapper made actual plans, and she confirmed she's moving to Miami. The wittiness came quickly after. Check it out below.

Scroll for the photos that brought major Louis Vuitton action, a white bikini top, and the rapper looking gorgeous as she posed by ocean sunsets. Chanel, who has made 2021 headlines for suffering lobster-level sunburn during her Miami Beach travels, is seemingly undeterred.

Sharing outdoor shots as she flaunted her pandemic weight loss in a one-shouldered and tight bikini top paired with a slinky white-and-yellow pattern skirt, Chanel posed with white shades, buckets of attitude, and an actual bucket hat, courtesy of luxury designer Louis Vuitton.

All chunky high heels and on oceanfront decking, Chanel threw out her designer vibes complete with a pink-and-white LV bag, also wearing a flashy gold watch. "Missing Miami," the star told her fans, adding that she was "moving there soon tho!" A hashtag then proved the cherry on the cake as Chanel wrote: #ChanelEastCoast. 

Fans are falling apart laughing. "Chanel East Coast!" one replied with a cry-face emoji. "What??" another wrote, adding: "Chanel East Coast coming soon." West Coast kept fans on their toes, not confirming the joke/not joke situation.

Explaining Her Name

Swipe below for the gallery - scroll for more photos. Chanel has actually opened up on her name, one that is, in itself, a luxury brand.

In 2015, the former Fantasy Factory face opened up, revealing: "Chanel’s my middle name, so that’s kind of just on my birth certificate."

"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," she added. 

And The 'West Coast'

Not holding back on the details, the LOL Cartel founder continued: "When I was trying to figure out a URL for my MySpace music page, all Chanels were taken, so I was like, 'You know what? I’m a West Coast rapper, so maybe I’ll just make my URL Chanel West Coast."

Chanel's post clocked her a sweet 59,000+ likes. The star who has ranted about not getting enough Instagram likes is, however, fresh from alleging that her DMs are getting hacked.
