Lenny Kravitz gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, joined by daughter and Denzel Washington

On Tuesday, singer, actor, and fashion icon Lenny Kravitz earned a Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

Kravitz broke out in the 1990s with four Grammys and 11 albums. He was also nominated for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction this year.

Kravitz recalled his childhood years walking Hollywood Boulevard and idolizing his favorite stars during Tuesday's event.

“I used to walk these streets because Hollywood had the action and grit I missed in New York.”

“As a teenager, I walked up and down Hollywood Boulevard seeing my idols' names,” he said. “Never imagined having a star. I mostly looked for a spot to sleep. I dreamed of crafting my own songs and doing my own thing. I cannot describe the odd sense of seeing my name, Lenny Kravitz, forever etched on the streets I used to walk.”

Zoe Kravitz, Lenny's daughter, joined him onstage and mocked his fashion style.

"Since you were so young when I was born, we've grown up together," she said. “We’ve endured much. We've seen lots. I've seen lots. I've watched you evolve beautifully and stay the same in key ways."

“I've seen the way you show up, take care of the people you love, and your incredible dedication to your art, but mostly, I've seen through your shirts,” she added.

“According to my dad, if it doesn’t expose your nipples, it’s not a shirt,” she joked. I know you embarrassed me when you picked me up from school as a youngster, but I admire it now. You succeed. Your knitted shirt connection is probably your longest and works.”

“You two improve each other—don't fix what's not broken. It’s lovely,” she said.

Denzel Washington joined them onstage and applauded Kravitz's ability and sincerity.

“He’s more than a friend, he’s more than a brother,” Washington remarked. We're twins, yet we appear different. For 30 years, we have maintained a tight connection and brotherhood.

“God has blessed him with an unbelievable talent, but even more so, an unbelievable heart,” he said, calling Kravitz “a giver” and “a lover.”

Despite his numerous successes, Kravitz is best known for “It Ain’t Over ’til It’s Over,” “Always on the Run,” “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” and “Fly Away.”

In addition to music, Kravitz participated in the “Hunger Games” flicks.

Kravitz took selfies and signatures for his followers at the event, thanking them and underlining that the Walk of Fame star belongs to them.

“This isn’t my star,” he informed the crowd. This is our star. Thanks everyone, and let love rule.”
