Lenny Kravitz Surrounded by Love During Walk of Fame Ceremony

Lenny Kravitz has received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

Taking to the podium, the music icon recalled growing up on sets with his mum, The Jeffersons star Roxie Roker, discovering music as a child and eventually buying his first guitar at the age of 12. He thanked everyone who believed in him and supported him along the way including his instrument technician, high school friends and family: “This star is for you.”

Lenny was joined by his daughter Zoë Kravitz who not only shared loving words for her dad but also hilariously roasted him!

“I’ve seen you change in the most beautiful ways. I’ve seen the way you’ve stayed the same in the most important ways. I’ve seen the way you show up, take care of the people you love. I’ve seen your incredible dedication to your art. And mostly, I’ve seen through your shirts!”

She continued, “all my life, people have asked me ‘What is it like to have such a cool dad?’ And the answer is, awesome!”

Hollywood legend Denzel Washington also shared some loving words about Lenny, describing him as “more than a friend” and “more than a brother” as well as someone who was “blessed with an unbelievable talent but more so, an unbelievable heart.”
