But I’m a good girl

High intensity

A mischievous woman, malicious glances.

A game of hide-and-seek behind a sparkling curtain.

This sublime figure will offer you a number of high intensity. A contagious energy for a number that is brimming with life and magnificently performed.


Polly Underground

This act from the classic Crazy Horse repertoire was originally created for the sparkly Polly Underground.

This iconic show girl, whose real name is Madeleine Harper, was discovered in a cabaret in Germany by Alain Bernardin and his muse Lova Moor.

They urged the young dancer to move to Paris and, after having renamed it with “made in Crazy”, they made her one of the legendary stars of the famous cabaret at 12 avenue George V.

Originally entitled “My name is Polly Underground”, this classic number evolved over time, before becoming the famous “But I’m a good girl”, presented today on the stage of Paris’ legendary cabaret, at the center of the revue “Désirs”.

This act is also performed as part of the show on international tour, “Forever Crazy”, one of the “best of” acts from the 65 years of the Crazy Horse.

“But I’m a good girl” is a true Crazy Horse Paris classic that has gone through the years unscathed and is still animated by the same intensity!

But I'm a good girl, a mischievous woman, malicious glances.

Cover performance by Christina Aguilera

The solo dancer performs her number to music composed by Jacques Morali.

The father of the famous Village People has written legendary tunes for the most memorable shows of Crazy Horse.

In 2010, Christina Aguilera performed “But I am a Good Girl”, in the film “Burlesque”, co-starring with Cher.

The choreography of the act “But I’m a good girl” was created by the American choreographer Molly Molloy, who also collaborated with Arielle Dombasle, for her exclusive performances on the stage of the Crazy Horse in 2007.

Glamorously dressed in pearls

Le costume de cette « Good Girl », simplement et glamoureusement vêtue de perles, est signé du fashion designer et illustrateur franco-japonais Antoine Kruk.

The author of “Crazy”, a book of illustrations devoted to the backstage scenes of the Crazy Horse, Antoine Kruk also writes the column “Oh les filles!” in Figaro Madame, which describes in Kraz’s inimitable style the life of these mythic Parisiennes, always living between the worlds of fashion and high society.
