Lenny Kravitz, the only man who can make gold eyeliner and a giant fucking scarf look good, has a new interview in Flatt, and he's got a lot to say about how the world should be run. Mainly that women should be running it. He's tired of this boy's club and is ready for some change.
In a lengthy interview with Christina Lessa, Kravitz expressed his love for Harry Belafonte — "He's beyond." —, divulged whose voices inspire him — Gandhi, Jesus, MLK — and explained why he thinks that women should be in charge.
LENNY KRAVITZ: I personally think women should be running the world. I know that's such a funny, easy thing to say. My first experience with women would be my grandmother, my mother and my aunt. They were the women that raised me. At an early age, I understood it in my spirit the strength of women, the loyalty of women, the fact that women do whatever they need to do to take care of their families or loved ones. Women's dedication, hard work, honor. These women were the rocks of my life, the pillars of my life. Without these women, life for our families would not be what they are. I believe women are so much more sensible, have so much better intuition, and ultimately are stronger. For me, I've always gotten along better with women. I've always related to them better. I'm glad that that feminine side is a big part of my upbringing. To answer our question, I think that there should be a lot better representation by women in the running of this planet in so many ways.
The entire interview is worth a read. Kravitz discusses social change, racism in America and the evolution of his career. He does not discuss what the hell was going on with that scarf.
