Will Kanye boycott the Thanksgiving Day Parade too?
The rapper has already made up his mind to boycott NBC, which airs the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from New York City. West is one of many artists to be featured in the 84th annual parade.
Last week, West became upset with NBC over the way his interview about former president George Bush was handled. West claimed that the “Today” manipulated the interview to make him look bad.
Because of that, West backed out of a scheduled appearance on Today the day after Thanksgiving. But it’s unclear whether he will appear during the parade, which is broadcast by NBC.
Someone who will be at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade however is legend Gladys Knight. Apollo Legend Gladys Knight will usher in the Thanksgiving holiday with three 2010 Amateur Night at the Apollo winners. Other artists scheduled to perform are Jessica Simpson, The Roots and the Broadway cast of American Idiot.
