Lenny Kravitz plays photograoher as he points the camera lens on a few high profile celebrities, including his daughter Zoe, for the April issue of Vogue Russia.
Kravitz appears on the cover sporting a closely shaven head with arms wrapped around model Carmen Kass and his intimate shots of daughter Zoe Kravitz, singers Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Lionel Richie and rapper Jay-z appear inside.
All criticisms aside, like the odd pairing of Kass and Kravitz, their relevancy to anything current, or even the quality of some of Kravitz photos, we still love it! Because everything is just a little bit sexier when Lenny is involved!

The heart-wrenching drama Push about a 16-year-old overweight and illiterate pregnant girl based on the bestselling novel by Sapphire won top honors at this year’s Sundance film festival -snagging the grand jury award, audience award, and a special jury prize for comedianne Mo’Nique who plays an abusive mother.
Produced and directed by Lee Daniels, Push stars newcomer Gabourey Sidibe in the lead role and a handful of well-known music and film stars in unexpected roles, including Mariah Carey as a social worker, Lenny Kravitz as a male nurse, and Paula Patton as a teacher.
Lee Daniels was overwhelmed with the film’s performance at the festival and gushed, “We don’t have no money. We got $2 to make some s— happen. We’re doing this story about this fat black girl who doesn’t have a voice. They’re all in it for the craft.”
The film has yet to be picked up for distribution but Daniels is hopeful. “I think [this win] means there’s hope for people of color. Just because Obama’s president doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to translate down to our world of cinema. And I think what it does is reiterate and strengthen this power of, Get yourself a freakin’ video camera. And you go out and tell your truth. That’s what I started doing as a kid, and I think inevitably, it led to this. It’s just so much hope.”

The Sundance film festival kicked off on Thursday in Park City, Utah and while there are more than a few impressive black films in the lineup we are most excited about sexy rocker Lenny Kravitz‘ big screen debut in Lee Daniel’s film Push.
Not to be confused with the Dakota Fanning thriller Push, which hits theaters in February, Daniels’ Push is an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Ramona Lofton, aka Sapphire -the heart-wrenching drama of an abused, overweight and illiterate teenage mother trying to turn her life around in the Bronx section of New York.
Not only does Push provide Daniels’ with much needed directorial redemption from the disappointing 2005 film Shadowboxer, but Lenny Kravitz finally follows in his mother Roxie Rocker’s footsteps and show off his acting talents.
Kravitz, the ex-husband of Lisa Bonet and father to Blindie’s favorite budding actress Zoe Kravitz plays a male nurse who shows kindness to the teenage mother Clareece ‘Precious’ Jones played by newcomer Gabourey ‘Gabbie’ Sidibe.
Also starring in the film is Mariah Carey as a Harlem social worker and Swing Vote‘s Paula Patton as a school teacher.
Blindie hopes the film gets picked up at Sundance so we can see nurse Lenny on the big screen!

Thrift store jaunts and workouts at the gym aren’t exactly how you expect a rocker and his indie chic daughter to spend quality time, but that’s just what 20-year-old Zoe Kravitz does with dad Lenny.
When the attractive duo aren’t attending fashion shows together, they enjoy organic pancakes, wander thrift stores and workout at the ultra hip ME Fitness gym with trainer Robert Severiano in Miami.
“Zoe has lived with me since she was 11, and we are very close. After church, I’ll go straight to the farmers’ market and see what they’ve got. I get lots of fruit to make juice home and I’ll make wholegrain, organic pancakes. Usually, Zoe and me then have a drink in a cafe or wander around the thrift stores,” Lenny said in an interview.
