If you've read Grub Street's Very Simple Tips for Thanksgiving Dinner, you know that one of this site's tenets is to ignore vegetarians. One family that apparently heeds that advice: A$AP Rocky's. Grub caught up with the rapper at last night's screening of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom at the Ziegfeld Theater, and he told us that he wasn't high on anyone's Thanksgiving guest list: Im pretty boring, he said, when Grub asked about his plans. I dont eat meat, so people dont like to celebrate Thanksgiving with me. They cant enjoy it. But what about the side dishes? Surely Rocky can enjoy some of those? Most people in my family, they mix meat in everything that they cook," Rocky said. "So its just pretty annoying.
We thought the rapper was just being oversensitive who wouldnt want Rocky at Thanksgiving? but girlfriend Chanel Iman confirmed his suspicions at the screening's after-party at Le Bilboquet. Its just hard, because when I cook I always have to make all these veggie dishes, she said. I like all the fattening food, and it gets very frustrating cause its like, I like one thing, he likes another. So why not let him cook? I dont even know if he can make his own grilled-cheese sandwich, she said. Seriously.
