A Lot Of People Confused This Platinum Blonde Black Man With Sisqo

...with a quick glance and a shot or two of our favorite drink, hennything is possible.

Maybe this guy thinks Halloween takes place during New York Fashion Week, and if that's the case, then he wins. According to Page Six, homeboy with the platinum blonde hair and the 90s Versace blouse pictured above really fooled people into believing he's Sisqo.

#AlternativeSisqo was spotted sitting front and center at Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 premiere, as well as Philipp Plein and Vivienne Tam shows. According to attendees, #AbsolutelyNotSisqo allegedly bragged about having performed in New York's Meatpacking District recently. But the gag is, the real Dru Hill frontman was nowhere near the Big Apple.

#ArtificialSisqo--real name Gavin Barnes--almost got away with his foolery up until he tried to board a private jet with a few notable folks. When he offered his passport information, it was quickly realized he wasn't the 90s R&B hitmaker. Page Six reached out to Barnes who denied the whole thing.

“I never said I was Sisqó,” Barnes said. “People thought I was him, and that wasn’t cool.”

Sisqo's manager Jeff Allen also was contacted about the ordeal, and was just as lost in translation as the rest of us."It’s flattering, I guess,” he said. “Thanks for bringing it to our attention.”

Jay-Z Praises Debut Of Jordan Peele's 'Us' Movie

As part of the celebratory activities that took place after the debut of Us, Jay-Z decided to partake in the words of felicitations and congratulated director Jordan Peele for another cinematic feat. On Sunday (March 24), Mr. Carter issued a statement on the achievement, as posted by Roc Nation's Twitter account.

"For US by US. Congrats on the #1 movie in the world," the "Moonlight" rapper said. In a past interaction, Peele said Jay-Z helped him to get over the notion of a sophomore slump when he worried about another stellar follow-up to Get Out. In an interview with MTV News, Peele remembered Jay-Z stating, "It doesn't matter, you already did that."

According to Variety, Us (MonkeyPaw Productions), raked in $70 million at the domestic box office last weekend (March 22). The horror film stars VIBE cover star Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Elizabeth Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and more.

On the topic of featuring a black family at the center of this film, Peele said to VIBE that it'll open up new perspectives of what an African-American unit looks like onscreen. “To be able to normalize this idea of representation in film, we have to be ready to represent the spectrum of where we are as African-Americans," Peele said. "I hope it’s therapeutic to be able to see a black family buy a boat in a movie, to be able to play the good guy and the bad guy, and not have it be a movie that has to be about race. I think that’s good within our community, and it’s good for the outside communities to be able to see — don’t put us in boxes.”
