Lenny Kravitz has been a mainstay on the music scene for over two decades now. He has always been a favorite of mine, for the sincerity he brings to his songs, his original fashion sense and let’s not forget, his good looks.
Lenny covers Uptown Magazine’s August/September 2011 issue. Let’s just say the cover does not disappoint. He is clearly in shape, but what is more important is his new album, “Black and White America” which debuts this month. Lenny’s bi-racial background is something that he never fails to address and his new album is bringing it to the forefront. Race was something that deeply affected his childhood and definitely has its roots in his music: “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. I didn’t stick to one group, and I ended up listening to all kinds of music.”
Lenny Kravitz is a true rockstar in the best sense of the word and I cannot wait to hear his new album.
