Is there anything more existentially disconcerting than being denied entry to the club? Of course there is, squidbrains. If your chosen drinks and other substances are hitting you just right, however, a denied entry can indeed inspire an iconic moment of existential anguish that lands you in the pages of noted existentialism journal TMZ.
That was seemingly what happened to Chanel West Coast earlier this week at Poppy in West Hollywood, but the Ridiculousness star and "Blueberry Chills" crafter now says there's much more to the story. In a bathtub chat with TMZ Thursday, Chanel gave her account of that fateful night and came clean about something to which I can personally relate on the deepest possible level: an increasingly complicated desire for attention.
"I'm just, like, I'm just very over the whole superficial life and world we live in," Chanel explained. "I went to the club, I had just finished my gig at the Peppermint Club, came with a group of my friends, my very close friends, best friends, friends I would never ditch for anything. We went to Poppy, and a guy in the front basically whispered to me, like, 'Hey, bring your cutest friend [and] ditch the rest.' In my drunken state, I was like 'What?' I was so offended. I was like, do you think I'm just a horrible human who ditches my friends or do you think my friends aren't cool enough? It just really offended me that it was, like, bring your cutest friend and ditch the rest of your friends. Who does that? Only a bad friend does that."
Chanel conceded she "shouldn't have said" some of the "defensive comments" unleashed, adding that the presence of a nearby camera guy upped the stakes. "I'm gonna be honest too," she said, honestly. "I saw a camera guy filming and I was like, hey, maybe if I act a little crazier, I'll get some attention. Because at this point, I think that that's what this world has come down to. I think the only way to get attention is to act like a complete ignorant fool. You know, we've got Cash Me Ousside girls and people like that who act like complete fools and they get fame for it. I'll be honest, I put a little extra on it and just spiced it up a little just to hype it up and get some attention, because god forbid I get any attention for being the normal, hardworking, kind person I am."
Same x 100,000.
Btw, Chanel recently dropped a new single and video featuring Safaree.
