Psy Calls Out Fake Psy For Crashing Cannes

Some artists would go ballistic if they found out some joker was impersonating them on the red carpet at a major media event. Not Psy, though.

The genial South Korean rapper had a surprisingly jovial reaction to the fake "Gentleman,"
 tweeting, "Seems like there's another ME at Cannes ... say HI to him scooterbraun lol PsyinSingapore." He later uploaded a photo of the phony, who was spotted by manager Scooter Braun, and, well, you could see why some people might have been fooled.

The fake Psy, who wore the rapper's signature round glasses and ill-fitting suit, has been living it up around Cannes for several days as celebrities and journalists hit the town for the annual film festival. According to the Atlantic Wire, the as-yet-unidentified imposter went to parties, posed with celebrities and appeared in a video for French radio station Radio Prestige where he showed the host how to do the "Gangnam Style" dance.

Among those who got duped into posing with the pretender were actress Naomi Harris ("Skyfall"), actor Adrien Brody and Portland Trailblazers player Nicolas Batum. He also reportedly made his way into parties at the Carlton hotel, the VIP Room and Martinez beach, as well as attending a secret bash thrown by millionaire oil baron and fashion designer Goga Ashkenazi at Le Baron, where he grabbed a mike behind the DJ booth at the soiree attended by Karolina Kurkova and Rosario Dawson.

A spokesperson for Psy's management could not be reached for comment on the incident.

The Wire also reported that he was "scamming" for free drinks at a beach club and had his "manager" score him an appearance at Monaco's Better World Awards. According to the New York Post, the unnamed faker went so far as to hire three security guards with earpieces to accompany him. The charade reportedly went on for two days before the real Psy called his doppelganger out.
