Apparently, their attendance and support for BLACKPINK Lisa have caused the two celebrities to receive more backlash from the public. Not only that, but the two celebrities might reportedly be banned from the entertainment industry.
What REALLY Happened?
The guest performance of BLACKPINK Lisa at The Crazy Horse cabaret show in Paris has coincided with the latest Paris Fashion Week festivals.

Among the high-profile celebrities attending Lisa’s performance as VIP guests were Chinese stars Angelababy and Jenny Zhang. The two stars showed their support for BLACKPINK Lisa with glimpses of their presence as VIP guests in the cabaret show.
Unfortunately, their support and presence at BLACKPINK Lisa’s “Crazy Horse” cabaret show performance in Paris has caused unimaginable damage to the two celebrities. Angelababy and Jenny Zhang have reportedly suffered from massive boycotts from the public. Moreover, they are in danger of suffering a complete ban from the entertainment industry.

Chinese netizens have officially filed reports against Angelababy and Jenny Zhang to the Chinese government. They claimed the two artists had violated the rules of the China Association of Performing Arts.
According to the China Association of Performing Arts, artists are prohibited from organizing, participating in, and promoting illegal activities, including those related to obscene and explicit content. By attending BLACKPINK Lisa’s “Crazy Horse” show performance in Paris, the two Chinese celebrities have violated this rule.
“Entertainers are prohibited from the following:
4. Organize, participate, or promote illegal activities, such as those related to obscene and explicit content…”China Association of Performing Arts.
Due to this issue, China Central Television (CCTV) removed Angelababy’s video performance during the Mid-Autumn festival from its Weibo account. This removal fueled the suspicions that the Chinese government had blacklisted Angelababy from the entertainment industry.
BLACKPINK Lisa was NOT Naked During “Crazy Horse” Cabaret Performance in Paris: What’s the Controversy?
Following the conclusion of BLACKPINK Lisa performance at The Crazy Horse cabaret show in Paris, attendees revealed that she was NOT naked during the show, unlike the other “Crazy Girl” dancers. Lisa was still wearing a thong covering her private parts at the end of her performance.

#LISA removed the last piece – a little cover over her tummy left her in small black thong like pantied but wider, think chella pink trousers bikini line type cut but a little narrower at the front, absolutely nothing revealed so relax) and bejewelled bra. #LISAxCRAZYHORSEPARIS— Roses are Rosie (@MoreRosieLessMe) October 1, 2023
So, what’s the issue behind Lisa and her “Crazy Horse” controversy?
According to netizens, the issue behind BLACKPINK Lisa’s “Crazy Horse” controversy doesn’t necessarily lie in the nakedness of the show. Instead, it was due to Lisa’s involvement in the show itself.
Lisa has been rising to the top names of global celebrities as a member of the Kpop idol group BLACKPINK. Her involvement in the show clashes with the expected image of what Kpop idols should be.
Indeed, Lisa may not have been completely naked in the show. However, the action of stripping one’s clothes is already considered obscene and inappropriate. This is further problematic considering her image as a Kpop idol.
Promoting Women’s Rights and Freedom
Meanwhile, global fans came to Lisa’s defense. According to some fans, by participating in such performances, BLACKPINK Lisa is setting an example in promoting women’s rights and freedom to express themselves.
Previously, the venue’s general brand director, Andrée Deissenberg, explained the importance and value of The Crazy Horse show. According to the director, BLACKPINK Lisa has promoted the value of women’s pride in being free, curious, and confident by performing as a guest in the show.
“Since Crazy Horse stands as a symbol for women who take pride in being free, curious, and self-assured, I believe that Lisa, by choosing to embrace this, is promoting similar qualities.”Andrée Deissenberg.
Therefore, despite the massive controversy, BLACKPINK Lisa is simply making decisions she deems best for her. BLACKPINK Lisa seemed happy and proud of her performance. Therefore, fans vowed to support her journey of stepping out of her comfort zone.
I had the opportunity and the fortune of seeing Lisa several times in these two years and tonight she had the same if not brighter light in her eyes that she usually has when she is on stage and performing, she was very happy, the biggest smile on her face 😭— ✩ (@LISASE0K) September 28, 2023
My take on Lisa’s first Crazy Horse performance.— Jenlisa🍵 (@JenlisaTea1027) September 29, 2023
She performed 3 solos & some parts added to the group. She looked so happy to be performing and killed every moment. The screams she got were well deserved, so I hope she felt the love and support. Each outfit got more revealing,…
