BLACKPINK’s Lisa recently delivered a series of dazzling performances at the iconic Crazy Horse Cabaret in Paris. While her artistic endeavor was met with applause and support, it also sparked controversy and diverse opinions regarding the nature of the show and its impact on younger audiences.
Facts and Controversies: BLACKPINK Lisa Performance at The Crazy Horse Cabaret
1. What is The Crazy Horse Cabaret?
Founded in 1951 by Alain Bernardin, Crazy Horse is a renowned cabaret known for its theatrical entertainment featuring singing, dancing, and more. It is famed for its mix of seduction and sophistication, presenting semi-nude performances that emphasize the artistic beauty of the dancers. Situated at 12 Avenue George V, Paris, it offers a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Élysées.
2. Lisa wore modified outfits
Lisa underwent 4-5 outfit changes during her performance, each mirroring the essence of the dancers’ costumes but with modifications to maintain her modesty. For instance, she opted to wear a bra to avoid any exposure, ensuring that her attire was in line with her personal comfort and public image, while still harmonizing with the aesthetic of the show.
3. Lisa performed six times
Lisa appeared six times, donning modified versions of the showgirls’ outfits and iconic colorful wigs, but never fully unclothed. She was involved in both group and solo acts, including renditions of “But I am a Good Girl” and “Crisis? What Crisis!?” from the show’s history.
4. Chaesoo’s full support
Jisoo and Rosé were spotted at the venue, bringing flowers to support Lisa. Their presence was a sweet gesture of friendship and solidarity, emphasizing the close-knit relationship the members share.
Jisoo and Rosé went to watch Lisa’s Crazy Horse performance in Paris. The girls went to support with flowers, enjoyed the show with champagne, and made a big heart for Lisa at the end of the show and didn’t stop until Lisa saw them, they’re so fucking cute 🥺🤍 pic.twitter.com/kVYZhaHkwp— 젠바🌹♥️ (@blackpinkbabo) September 28, 2023
5. Lisa is happier than ever
Some people who watched Lisa’s performance described the energy at The Crazy Horse Cabaret just like in a BLACKPINK concert. Additionally, they said that Lisa appeared happier than ever.

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
6. Diverse Opinions and Reactions
Many were aware of Crazy Horse’s iconic brand and appreciated the artistic and sophisticated nature of the performances. However, some expressed disappointment, feeling the show discriminated between Lisa and the showgirls, and questioned the show’s claim of empowering women.
7. The minor fans
Additionally, some netizens argue that by promoting a show that features explicit content, Lisa is potentially exposing her younger fanbase to inappropriate material. These reactions highlight ongoing debates about artists’ responsibilities towards their diverse and impressionable audiences, raising questions about cultural representation, artistic expression, and the impact of performers’ choices on fans.
In China, there was a minor who supported lisa to release her nude photos, so people were angry … and thought that this should not be what idol should do. She made many children realize the crazy horse show. I didn't mean anything by it.— 不安 (@shabibiefan) September 30, 2023
Previously, debate also sparked among netizens when Lisa’s groupmate, Jennie, decided to appear on The Idol. Therefore, many are questioning the agency and group’s direction.
