Gawker Stalking the Coop at Scissor Sisters

We've now received probably a half-dozen reports of some of the celebrities spotted at the Scissor Sisters show at Bowery Ballroom last night. There was Karl Lagerfeld, looking characteristically Lagerfeldian. There was Kylie Minogue, who, it seems, "looked adorable with her short hair" and was "waving her hands in the air like she just didn't care." There was Richie Rich. There was Amanda Lapore. There may have been Ingrid Sischy. And there was one more celeb many of you have told us about, standing solo near the back of the dancefloor, looking incognito in a grey college sweatshirt — Arizona State, of all places — and baseball cap, and barely head-bopping to the music: Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Anderson Cooper.

And here's our question: If you're known to be a youngish, hippish New York celeb, if you're known to be friends with Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears, if it's common for New York celebs to be out at New York rock shows enjoying enjoying themselves, why wouldn't be enjoying it from some VIP seats instead of hiding out in the back? Jeez, it'd almost make people think you have other things you're trying to hide, too.
