Lenny Kravitz for Uptown Magazine

Happy Friday! We’re going to spoil you today with a little bit of Lenny Kravitz in the September issue of Uptown Magazine. I met Lenny when he was supporting U2 on their US leg of the tour in June and he was lovely, super chilled, very cool and of course wearing leather trousers like only a true rock star can… Snake hips essential.

A few interview snippets below!

On childhood and being mixed race:

“I was the kid they knew was different. They knew who my parents were
and would call them Mr. Day and Mrs. Night, or they’d call me zebra.”

His friend and musician Jill Jones said:

“Lenny would move easily through all the groups. There were black kids who hung together in the cafeteria, the geeks, the Asians, surfers, the rocker kids. He
hung with all of them.”

He also revealed he had a close relationship to Teena Marie.

“She would cook a lot. It was her and
 Penny Johnson, Rick James’ little sister. They looked after me, fed me. She took
me to concerts. She took care of a lot of folks. The big reason why I am here 
[is] because of this sister.”
