A Sisqó Look-A-Like Bluffed His Way Onto the Front Row at New York Fashion Week

All you need to sit front row at several designer shows at New York Fashion Week is some clusty jewelry, a fresh Versace shirt and a bleached hairdo. At least that’s all it took for one guy, who according to Page Six, hit up shows by Kanye West and Vivienne Tam, being mistaken for “Thong Song” singer and Dru Hill member Sisqó.

Together with his assistant, he sat front row, was seen palling around with designers and almost got on board a private jet to the Caribbean. For that last bit however, he had to show his passport, which revealed his name to be Gavin Barnes, born in 1986. Someone there was smart enough to note that meant he was 13 years old when Sisqó’s big hit “Thong Song” came out in 2000.

Gavin denied his last name was Barnes and that he ever said he was Sisqó: “People thought I was him, and that wasn’t cool.”

I dunno man. Seems like a pretty cool day to me.
