Lenny Kravitz’s leather pants ripped in concert & he was going commando

Lenny Kravitz

This is an amazing photo of Lenny Kravitz and Liam Gallagher at Paris Fashion week. They were both at the Saint Laurent show, and they seem like unlikely friends. Then again, so do most front-row fashion pairings, which begs the question of how much fun organizers have in arranging these seats.

Another amazing photo happened yesterday, but it is incredibly NSFW. Lenny was performing in Stockholm, Sweden when he experienced a wardrobe malfunction for the ages. He was wearing leather pants, but not just any leather pants. They were skinny pants, and he shredded so hard that he ripped those leather pants open at the crotch. He wasn’t wearing underwear at all, and his entire manhood was exposed to the world.

There’s photo evidence of this marvelous event. Do you want to see? Consider yourself warned, but the picture is right here. Look at his face. I think that’s his glorious “rock out” expression, and Lenny hasn’t quite realized that his wang is hanging out for the internet to preserve for posterity.

As a followup to this momentous occasion, Lenny took a good-natured jab at himself by tweeting Steven Tyler’s NSFW text about his piercing. The dude doesn’t seem embarrassed at all, even after the internet keeps making “Fly Away” jokes.

    He’s so sexy, still hot and those photos of him with his bits out – god he’s so gorgeous!!!!!!!!! Love him.

    • Lara K says:

      Totally gorgeous.

      And very cool to not care. This is the best way to deal with embarrassing moments.

    • Lana says:

      And making me feel more than a little hot looking at them. Yum!

    • Katenotkatie says:

      All hail! He is the sex for sure. Although if I were Zoe Kravitz I would be real embarrassed that my dad’s junk flew out of his SKINNY LEATHER PANTS while he was rocking out onstage.

    • Megan says:

      Hump Day just got a lot more interesting …

    • littlestar says:

      He just exudes sexiness, he doesn’t even have to TRY to be sexy, he just IS. Absolutely love him.

      • FLORC says:

        He completely just IS! I gotta say… I was ear to ear grinning the moment I clicked on this thread… Thinking the pant rip exposed nothing of note. Or it would crush my daydream version of lenny. So glad it didn’t…. :D

  2. Greyson says:

    Is it just me, but I don’t see a piercing? I see what looks like a ring around the base..

    • karen says:

      It’s a pubic piercing, he’s had it for years and discussed it in interviews (there are also black and white pics from ages ago that show it off)

    • C-No says:

      Edit after reading other comments: a public piercing?! That’s either brilliant for his female partners or REALLY PAINFUL.

    • LAK says:

      I don’t see a piercing, but I do see a c ring.

    • Spugzbunny says:

      #it’s a piercing. There are other not safe for work pictures of him modelling and you can clearly see it. it’s a ring that sort of goes through the skin at the base.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      Had to ask somebody about it, because I know nothing about/have no experience with guys with dick rings and wanted to know if it functioned somewhat like a clit ring. Apparently a dick ring can serve two purposes: maintaining an erection longer, and also making a dick look bigger (so basically the guy equivalent of a push-up bra) even when it’s not in its full erect state, from the slight engorging it will cause.

  3. Lindy79 says:

    This made my Tuesday yesterday.

    That is all.

    (you should have used his giant scarf/couch throw picture in the article. It never fails to raise a smile)

  4. Claire says:

    Thank you!!!! :)

  5. Beth No. 2 says:

    Having a sense of humour really diffuses the most awkward situations – good on him! :D

    • Nicole says:

      Ha! What’s he got to be embarrassed about, really? How shameful, I’m a grower AND a shower. lol

  6. Betti says:

    I wasn’t going to click on the link but curiosity got the better of me – now feel dirty :( He’s still hot and am sure his kids are very embarrassed to see that where they came from is now public. LOL

    Good on him for laughing it off – its all you can do really.

  7. Maya says:

    I am sorry but am I supposed to feel bad for Lenny???

    He is hot and I am eternally grateful for the pants makers for making the pants rip☺️

    • Esmom says:


      He is hot. I was having a debate with a group of ladies about who’s the sexiest rocker and he was the only guy we could unanimously agree on.

  8. Lilacflowers says:

    Beige booty shorts would never have failed like that.

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Thank you, Lenny.

    • Shambles says:

      And thank you, leather pants. I could probably set myself on fire and still be in a good mood for the rest of the day after seeing that glorious sight.

  10. Skyblue says:

    This is my favorite post of all time! All hail Lenny!

  11. Freebunny says:

    “Johnny Halliday has a new toupee” gonna be my comment.

  12. Sixer says:

    Ok. I admit it. I looked. Acheve moi!

    If anyone has much in the way of French, the comments on that tweet are HILARIOUS.

  13. AG-UK says:

    Stay away from Liam unibrow… love Lenny though.

  14. Izzy says:

    Is it bad that I just broke into a chorus of Hallelujah? I don’t think it’s bad…

  15. Jess says:

    My god, what a beautiful man, it doesn’t get better than that.

  16. sills says:

    That’s French rock legend Johnny Halliday on Lenny’s right, looks like they were going for a “rock-n-roll dudes” theme in the seating.

    One of the twitter comments says “I wonder if he had the c0ck ring back when he was with Vanessa Paradis?…” followed by “Yeah, but branded Chanel, and he came back to his cage when she whistled”… LOL, Lenny is sex on wheels and he clearly DGAF, keep on keepin on dude.

  17. QQ says:

    D!ck fell out like Piñata Candy!

    one of My gfs said it was like NYE Party confetti

    Or a special Guitar solo guest

  18. BendyWindy says:

    I’ve seen more than a few comments making fun of his small, less than impressive penis. Um. It’s like 5 inches long while flaccid. Wtf???

    Anyway, I’m glad he’s able to laugh it off. I’m a little intrigued by the difference in media coverage than if he had been female, though. It’s too early for me to form coherent thoughts about it.

    • lizzie says:

      right??? honestly – has lisa bonet has ever been with a man with a small penis…i highly doubt it.

    • Lana says:

      I know, right? wtf? When I saw it, I thought wow, his partner is a LUCKY woman! Because he is certainly well-endowed, that’s for sure. I think people who have made those comments are either virgins who have never seen a real one, or don’t know the difference between a “show-er” and a “grow-er”. I suspect Lenny is a bit of both, so I’m thinking he is probably 7-8 inches when, er, you know. Which is well above average, since the average size is 6 inches, and he looks not far off it flaccid.

      • Triple Cardinal says:


        I’ll tell you what one of my music profs told me: It’s not the size of the baton, it’s the *maestro*.

    • Neonscream says:

      Length wise no slouch but width wise? I dunno, maybe I’ve just been lucky a lot over the years.

  19. A. Key says:

    Who knew he had a penis!! Wow! The shock!

    Well I guess his secret is out now…..

    *eye roll*

  20. Em says:

    There is a gif of the scene. It is one of the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Can’t stop laughing and crying. Here is a link
    This might be NSFW but my coworkers and I are on a loop :-D :-D :-D

  21. Jayna says:

    Thank you from the bottom of my….heart, Lenny.

  22. Mimz says:

    So I LOVE Lenny but i’m scared … I don’t know if I want to see those pics. I’m afraid I might be disappointed? Or not? … Hmm…
    In any case, people on twitter are saying that because Lenny is a guy he’s never going to get the same Backlash as Janet did after nipplegate so #doublestandards. Although, the problem with Janet was also probably because it was on Live TV. And it looked a bit planned… (seriously, who wears pasties under her top??)
    What do you guys think?

  23. Jen43 says:

    Lenny posed nude some years back. You can see his piercing clearly.


  24. serena says:

    LMAO, well I’ve always been curious about it.. so thank you wardrobe malfunction. Lenny is still freaking hot.

  25. Anna says:

    I was there! Too far back to really see anything, but I still get to tell people I’ve seen Lenny Kravitz’s bits and pieces live and in person *can die happy now*

    • mimif says:

      What did he do?! Walk backward off stage, cover his bits with an oversized chunky scarf?? WE MUST KNOW!

  26. Kiki says:

    His milkshake brings all the girls in the yard. Lenny Kravitz is hella sexy. I knew is ‘big’ down there, but whether he is well endowed or not, I still think he is sexy and a ‘reallll’ man.

  27. Malificent says:

    I’ve always thought that his music was painfully derivative. But major points for having a great sense of humor and a really decrepit picture in his attic.

  28. ria says:

    He is still way more sexy than any boybanders ever could be.
    Isn’t he nearing 50 now?
    Like good wine getting better with are

  29. FingerBinger says:

    Lenny has nothing to be ashamed of. He’s in good shape.He’s aged well. Liam Gallagher did not.

  30. NGBoston says:

    Lenny is sexxxy AF,,,with or without clothing.


  31. Green Is Good says:

    This is the stuff wet dreams are made of.

  32. LuvHotGuyFri says:

    And it happened on my birthday!! Happy birthday to me!
    I’ve loved Lenny forever and years and years ago he gave an interview and said that he doesn’t wear underwear and hasn’t in forever, and that his mom doesn’t like it…he just doesn’t believe in it. I agree-he should not wear underwear!

  33. Tippipippi says:

    I admit I googled ‘Lenny Kravitz naked’ to see the older pics others were talking about. God, he’s the sexiest man alive. So beautiful. I’m madly in love with him.

  34. arabella says:

    I LOVE Lenny. He’s my dream man and if he’s a grower, then he’s HUGEEE. There are so many things I would do to his jewels.

  35. belle de jour says:

    Obviously, someone liked it and put a ring on it.

  36. Original T.C. says:

    Lord have mercy, that is a wickedly sexy picture. Thank you Lenny for making my day. Thank you Lisa Bonet for again proving your taste in men is A+.

  37. jenn12 says:

    I’ve loved him since 1989 (let love rule!!) and this just gives me another reason why.

  38. Scout says:

    He was really good in Precious as the nurse. I didn’t even recognise him at first!

  39. LeAnn Stinks says:

    Holy Kravitz!

  40. elle says:

    Does anyone reemember the kurfuffle a few years ago with Brett Favre sending dick pics to that ESPN analyst — or something? After seeing the pics, I was learned, “Dude, unsolicited weiner pics are never, ever, okay. Ever.”

    I stand corrected.

    Lenny, do you need my digits?

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Let’s be honest, those orange Mario Batali crocs he was wearing, didn’t help either-LOL!

      BTW, not that it matters, the reporter’s name was Jenn Sterger and she “worked” for the NY Jets.

  41. GreenieWeenie says:

    wow, I just learned new slang in French….la bite

  42. Nibbi says:

    it’s stuff like this that really makes me love the internet.
