Lenny Kravitz

Singer Lenny Kravitz was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with his daughter Zoë Kravitz and long-term companion Denzel Washington going with him to receive the honor on Tuesday March 11, 2024.

The 59-year-old star attributed his Hollywood beginning to Norman Lear, who picked his mom Roxie Roker to star on “The Jeffersons.” Kravitz said he moved some distance from home at age 15 and lived his own beneficial way in the city of Los Angeles.

“I will forever be grateful to this city for that. I used to walk these very streets because the action in the grit that I was missing in New York was right here in Hollywood. As a teenager, I spent a lot of time walking up and down Hollywood Boulevard, seeing the names of all my idols. I never dreamt about having a star. I was usually just looking for a place to crash. But I did dream about making the music I wanted and doing my own thing. To see my name, Lenny Kravitz, permanently engraved on the same streets I used to walk. It’s a surreal, indescribable feeling,” Kravitz said.

“We have been tied together for a long time,” said Washington. “We’re close friends. We are brothers. I love Lenny Kravitz. I love Lenny Kravitz. I love Lenny Kravitz l ike I’ve loved no other brother in my life.”

“The Jeffersons” star Marla Gibbs, who is 92, was among those part of the event, alongside Zoë Kravitz’s life partner Channing Tatum. Kravitz said it was “mind blowing” to have Marla and other people who were with him toward the beginning of his career meeting in one place.

He said he couldn’t help but “go his own way” in the music industry.

“It was within my heart. I didn’t know any other way. I really didn’t. I turned down a lot of record deals, that, you know, wanted me to change my music. And I knew that there was something special that I needed to do, but I didn’t have it yet,” he said.
