Blackpink arrives in Paris nightlife One of Paris's most historic venues welcomes a K-pop sensation

As fans delight in seeing Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa rock the stage side by side, the multi-talented members of the Blackpink group have never hesitated to pursue their own individual projects. In fact, Lalisa Manobal (born Pranpriya Manobal), who is the only non-South Korean member of the internationally renowned K-pop group given she was born in Thailand, is bringing her talents to Paris at the end of the month with five headline performances at the Crazy Horse cabaret.

Anchored in history as one of the world's greatest cabaret/burlesque venues, the Crazy Horse has been a Parisian institution since its establishment in 1951. More recently, in the early 2000s, the club hosted several distinguished talents such as Dita von Teese, Carmen Electra, and Pamela Anderson, all of whom undoubtedly contributed to elevating the Haussmannian building to cult status. Manobal will headline five exceptional performances on September 28, 29, and 30, during which the international star will embody a 'Crazy Girl' and perform some of the cabaret's most classic numbers, including "But I am a Good Girl" and "Crisis? What Crisis!?"

As for her stage costumes, the starlet will don the usual cabaret attire, with some unique and personal touches. Nothing less is expected, as Manobal has become something of a fashion icon in recent years, even becoming the muse of Hedi Slimane, Celine's creative director, along with becoming a member of the ANDAM 2021 jury. To no surprise, Parisian supporters wasted no time getting involved in the event: the Crazy Horse website crashed once tickets went on sale, and once it was back up, they sold out quickly. Furthermore, thrusting her into the forefront of the French public, Manobal has been the subject of romantic rumors linked to TAG Heuer CEO and son of LVMH magnate Bernard Arnault, Frédéric Arnault, after the two were spotted dining in Paris and later in Venice this summer.
