Lila Magnetic

Nationality: French

Hair: brown

Eyes: brown

Astrological sign: Taurus


How did you get your stage-name?

“Lila” or violet, is my favorite color. When I first got here, everyone noticed my violet accessories. And “Magnetic”… well, that’s for you to say!


What is your fondest memory at the Crazy Horse thus far?

The “Forever Crazy” tour is my fondest memory. Being on the road for over two years… (London, Canada, Hong Kong, Cannes, Russia, etc.)


How do you get motivated when you get up every day?

I love being on stage. It’s what drives, nourishes and motivates me. So in the morning, I take care of myself in order to be at my best in the evening (a good breakfast, nails, hair and stretching).

"Chain Gang” was a heart-stopper for me


Who is the woman that inspires you most?

Difficult to choose one, at the moment I’m listening to Barbara. I admire her very much, what a career, despite such a difficult past, you’ve got to respect that!


What’s your best beauty and/or fitness tip?

I do daily yoga sessions, have a well-balanced diet and sleep eight hours.


What is “Crazy” and what is “not Crazy” for you?

To me it’s the Crazy walk, or stride that symbolizes what Crazy is all about. It needs to be assertive, swaying, majestic and through it all your own personality and character need to transpire. On the other hand, vulgarity in any size, shape or form, is not Crazy. Whether it be in the way of behaving, talking or in your personal tastes.


What is your favorite act in the show?

Again, hard to choose. “Chain Gang” was a heart-stopper for me, the first time I saw it. I’m still hoping to do it someday…


How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

First step and not the slightest: the audition. That’s probably what marked and impressed me the most. Improvising alone on this legendary stage, almost totally naked, in front of the managers, was not easy. After that, you need to work hard, always striving for perfection. Turning into a Crazy Girl takes time!


How do you prepare before getting on stage? Are there any rituals you go through?

I’m a perfectionist, so I make sure everything is perfect. I take my time to make sure my makeup is flawless and my hair well-groomed. Then comes time for my warmup, which is very important! Then I concentrate and breathe.


In only three words, how would you define a Crazy Girl?

A Crazy Girl is elegant, a bit mysterious and gives her all to her audience.
