Lisa, from the most popular K-pop band that won the hearts of millions of fans all over the world, was born on March 27, 1997, in Thailand. Her full name currently is Lalisa Manobal or Manoban.
Her parents named her Pranpriya Manobal, but she is now known as Lisa. Lisa is a Thai rapper, singer, and dancer and a member of the South Korean girl group Blackpink, which debuted in 2016 under the label YG Entertainment.
Lisa worked with her group and released several songs, but her first solo single, album Lalisa, was released in September 2021 and sold over 736,000 copies in its first week in South Korea. With this, she became the first female artist to sell the most.
The album’s lead single had a music video of the same name, which again had a remarkable 73.6 million views in 24 hours on YouTube. This set a new record for the most-viewed music video by a solo artist in the first 24 hours on the platform.
Lisa’s popularity is not only for her dancing and rapping skills, but she also shined as a fashion icon through partnerships with top brands like Celine, Bulgari, MAC Cosmetics, and even by participating in the ANDAM fashion prize jury in 2021.
Building Anticipation for the Historic Shows
Lisa will blend Crazy Horse Paris acts with classic songs like “But I am a Good Girl” and “Crisis? What Crisis!?” During her performance, she will undergo a ‘Crazy Girl’ transformation and showcase her unique costume choices.
Lisa had previously teased her followers on social media with a cryptic Instagram Story captioned, “Shhh…coming soon”, and she shared a photo of herself surrounded by dancers from the iconic theatre, hinting at her upcoming collaboration way before the announcement.
“Lalisa” and its most viral second single, “Money,” both made it to the top 10 of the Billboard Global 200. Along with that, Lalisa also continued to become the first album to reach 1 billion streams by a K-pop soloist on Spotify.
For her contributions to the music industry, Lisa earned several accolades throughout her career. She received seven Guinness World Records, an MTV Europe Music Award ever won by a K-pop soloist, a Gaon Chart Music Award, the first MTV Video Music Award, and a Mnet Asian Music Award. Since 2019, Lisa has been the most-followed K-pop artist on Instagram.
Setting the Stage for Lisa’s Historic Cabaret Debut
BLACKPINK’s Lisa is set to make history as the first K-pop artist to perform at the renowned Crazy Horse Cabaret in Paris. Crazy Horse Cabaret, also known as Le Crazy Horse de Paris, wasted no time unveiling this groundbreaking collaboration. They announced on September 6, 2023, to reveal that Lisa, at the age of 26, will grace the cabaret’s stage with five exclusive shows. The performances are scheduled for September 28, 29, and 30 on Avenue George V.
The announcement generated significant excitement, resulting in rapid ticket sales for 250 euros, which is around $268 per ticket, with a limit of 10 tickets per transaction.
The Unique Appeal of Crazy Horse Cabaret
Crazy Horse Cabaret has a tradition of hosting guest stars, including Arielle Dombasle, Conchita Wurst, Pamela Anderson, and Dita Von Teese, who played a pivotal role in the cabaret’s 65th-anniversary celebration in 2015. The cabaret is known for its artistic collaborations with directors like Christian Louboutin and Chantal Thomass.
For those who do not know about the Crazy Horse Cabaret, it is a storied Parisian institution where women perform to entertain people, usually in revealing clothes. However, this is not as vulgar as inappropriate as the costumes and the performances are made with precision to incorporate the artistic nature of the songs, dance, and composition to create a masterpiece.
BLINKs Unite: The Global Fandom’s Excitement
Lisa’s presence at Crazy Horse Cabaret is a significant moment for K-pop and promises to be a memorable spectacle. BLACKPINK’s loyal fans, who named themselves BLINKs, strongly supported Lisa’s upcoming performance. Many of them even expressed their interest in potential online streaming availability.
