    Default Lenny Kravitz: Women should run the world



    His role in music: ďThe artistís role in society is to keep reflecting whatís happening, to keep reporting, as it were. Because with the way that things are going, art is getting pushed into the bottom level, unless itís something thatís for great gain. You know, art that goes for ridiculous prices, I mean, incredibly ridiculous prices, because thatís the business. So on that level, people are going to keep art going because thereís money in it. But where thereís not necessarily money in it and itís about expression and itís raw, those outlets are diminishing.Ē

    His modern role models: ďWow, thatís a hard one. I donít really feel there is a distinct voice for this generation so I stick with the classic voices still speak to me like Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.Ē

    His thoughts on women: ďI personally think women should be running the world. I know thatís 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. Womenís 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, Iíve always gotten along better with women. Iíve always related to them better. Iím 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.Ē

    On being ďa sell outĒ: ďYou can be successful and do well without selling out, but when you sell out from being yourself, thatís the thing thatís a problem. Before I even made my first record and people didnít necessarily understand what I was doing because I wasnít black enough or I wasnít white enough, I was offered big money onceĖhere I am living in that Ford Escort, Iím showering in friendís houses, Iím eating whatever I can get for food. Iím sleeping parked in places. Then I was offered one of those big record contracts in the eighties when I was a teenager to sign. That was my dream, to have a record deal, and here it was! But they said, you canít do what youíre doing, we think youíre talented and all, but what youíre doing is not what weíre going to let you do. You have to do this, whatever that was, to conform to whatever was happening that time on the radio, especially with African American artists. I had to conform to the African American radio success program. And there I was at the record company and the guy is offering it to me and theyíre pulling out the letter of intent. And I stood there and I looked at them and I honestly canít tell you what made me not do it. There was something inside of me. I turned it down and walked out of that office. And everyone told me what a f***ing idiot I was.Ē

    It's a shame he didn't list a single woman as a role model.

    Mr Lenny Kravitz 'should run' his sexaaay ass to my house.. hehehe .. yes okay.. that was wrong and uncalled for


    It's wonderful how much love and respect Lenny has for his Mother, Grandmother and Aunt.. i absolutely adore him for this.

    Those two words 'Sell Out', annoy the heck out of me .. everything evolves, even musicians. Otherwise it would be a very boring world... and they would be flat broke because their fan base would be too small to sustain the Musicians career.. so they have to try new styles of music, to stay fresh and keep learning...

    ... oh crap.. sorry, rambling againz.

    His music is about as bland and boring as Nickelback's.

    Bland, corporate rock.
