Lenny Kravitz rethinking underwear boycott

Lenny Kravitz

A Lenny Kravitz show at a theme park in Sweden earlier this week was a bit of a rollercoaster ride*. As well as seeing the musician show off his guitar stroking skills, audience members also got a clear view of his penis.

Kravitz was performing at the Gröna Lund theme park in Stockholm when a misjudged squat during the first song tore his leather trousers straight up the crotch, revealing that he is a man who does not feel the need to wear underwear. If you’re desperate to know what that might look like, knock yourself out.

According to local news reports, the show was stopped and Kravitz left the stage temporarily, while the audience were fobbed off with something about technical difficulties on stage. When Kravitz returned he was wearing different trousers. Because the other ones had split and his cock was hanging out. Honestly, keep up. You didn’t believe that thing about ‘technical difficulties’, did you?

Anyway, we all had a laugh, including Kravitz, who later posted a screengrab of a text message from Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, saying: “Dude… no underwear and pierced? Fuck me, you never showed me that shit”.

I’m not sure if it’s expected that all male rock stars show Steven Tyler their penises, but if you’re unsure it’s probably for the best that you do.

*I’m aware that this line doesn’t really work, but I’m hoping it will distract you from the full horror of the next sentence.
