(AllHipHop News) Controversial rapper/producer Kanye West will make an appearance in Macy's 84th annual Thanksgiving Parade this year in New York City. Kanye will headline the parade, which has already tapped celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, Gladys Knight, Arlo Guthrie, Big Time Rush, teeny-bopper Victoria Justice and Colombia rocker, Juanes. Macy's Thanksgiving Parade spokesman Orlando Veras stated that the diversity amongst the artists was intentional, to match the genetic makeup of the 3.5 million people that enjoy the annual parade, which will also be broadcast to another 50 million people, on NBC this year. "We want to make sure we are capturing people who are in the zeitgeist," Veras said. Despite alleged nude pics of Kanye floating around, Veras said that all performances are being monitored by parade coordinators, to ensure each artists show will be "family friendly." Other artists slated to participate in Macy's 84th Annual Thanksgiving Parade include Keri Hilson, India Arie, Miranda Cosgrove and others. The event takes place on November 25th beginning at 9:00 AM.
