BLACKPINK member Lisa just gave a teaser of what fans could expect from her highly anticipated stint at Paris’ Crazy Horse, and the latter couldn’t help but gush over her “new era.”
Earlier this month, the 26-year-old Thailand-born singer surprised the entire K-Pop community after it was announced that she would perform at the infamous cabaret show, making her the first-ever K-Pop idol to do so. Lisa will have five exclusive shows from Sept. 28 to 30.
Because Crazy Horse is known for its musical performances featuring nude female performers, fans — known as BLINKS — became more curious about what Lisa could bring to the stage.
On Thursday, the K-Pop sensation unveiled a short preview to her followers on Instagram, sharing photos and a video of her practicing for the performance. She was seen standing behind a nearly see-through backdrop amid blue and white flashing lights. However, the K-Pop star did not show her face or outfit.
Following the post, which has over 5.9 million likes as of press time, fans took to social media to express their opinions. Most were positive and supportive of the singer-dancer.
“I support [you], This is definitely going to be a fantastic show,” one user commented on Instagram, while another stated, “Woah, I’m going crazy with your talent indeed.”
Another wrote on Twitter, “LISA ARE YOU CRAZY????” and re-shared the video from Lisa’s original post.
“This just proves how versatile Lisa is. She can do sexy, boyish, hot, cute and c–t moves, who’s doing it like her,” a fourth user added.
“She’s feeling it! I thought I was ready for the new era of Lisa. I AM IN AWE! She is crazy for real! I love her,” a fifth user noted.
Despite the excitement of most, however, some social media users were divided on Lisa’s performance. Some claimed that because of the “history” of Crazy Horse, it could be just another “strip show.”
“I don’t care if she does it or not, but I wish she leaves out the K-Pop artist title – don’t associate with BLACKPINK when doing this,” one user commented on a South Korean online forum site.
Another said, “History and tradition, lol. But in the end, it’s just a strip show…It’s not like a strip show can be anything else.”
“I was reading the comments since it’s over 1000 comments. I’m not a fan of the performance itself, but aren’t the comments crossing the line? Calling it ‘prostitution’ is a bit much…that’s too much isn’t it? Unbelievable,” a third user defended Lisa.
Though it is unclear if Lisa will be performing her solo hits, she is reportedly set to perform the iconic “But I am a Good Girl” and “Crisis? What Crisis?!?” alongside a group of dancers, per a press release from Crazy Horse’s official website. She is also expected to wear the show’s “usual costumes” with an added personal touch.
