Lenny Kravitz’ Knob

On August 3rd, 2015, Kravitz’ leather pants split down the middle during a performance of the song “American Woman” at a concert in Stockholm, Sweden. Immediately after, several photos and video of the incident began circulating online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNIrnHIoE5E
Well…. Photos schmotos… blue ring records got the real thing, an exclusive interview with Lenny Kravitz’ knob shortly after the photos hit the web.

BRR: So, what’s with the hanging out at the festival, then?
LKK: Frankly, mate, it was a freedom bid.
BRR: What... a break out?
LKK: Look , mate… why do feet stink? They stink because they is stuck inside leather shoes all fukkn day long. And I had been stuck inside Lenny Kravitz’ leather duds for fukkn hours on a fukkn sweltering hot stage. And then he goes leaping about like a fukkn lemur with St Vitus’ Dance and I was dripping with sweat, and chafin’ an’ everything.
BRR: Unpleasant…
LKK: That wasn’t the fukkn ‘alf of it; I distinckly merember Lenny’s Mum say in ‘to him before he went out: ‘Len… have you got nice clean undies on? I don’t want you embarrassing me if you get run down by an herd of ephelants and killed and taken away in the meat wagon with untidy underwear’. I heard her say that and I also distinckly heard Lenboy say: She’s apples, Mum!’ Well… he fukkn Eric Bibbed, din’t he? He’s wearin’ no fukkn underdaks, splits his cowskin duds and there’s me as nekkid as the day I was borned splashed over the fukkn interweb.
BRR: well… you didn’t look too bad, what with the bling and all….
LKK: Well, it’s all right to say that now, somewhat down the track a bit but I can give you the oil that getting’ the bling in-fukkn-serted didn’t ‘alf bring a tear to my fukkn eye!
BRR: I am sure it seemed an unreasonable penance at the time but surely it’s been worth it and continues to keep you in ...er … hot muffins… so to speak….?
LKK: Look, there’s no denying we got ourselves into some tasty crumpet over the years and that bling has been what you might say is the icing on the cake in many of our after-concert adventures…
BRR: I suppose it looks pretty good, nestling in that err…. Brillo pad shrubbery arrangement Lennie has down there….
LKK: Oh, Yer… it’s shiny enough, and it still rings the devil’s doorbell on the traditionalists….
BRR: Traditionalists???
LKK: Yer, the ones that still like the traditional missionary style of folk dancing. And let me tell you, that’s becoming a bit more the regular these days  because, well, the fact is, Ol’ Len’s getting on a bit; he’s been bashing away for nearly 30 years or so and now he's become sort of M.O.R. and …. well…. so is the audience! And truth to be told, me and my gonad mates find that we’re bangin’ up against a lot of old badgers these days. Not that I mind the greybeards, mind you, some of the MILF is quite doable – and the occasional GILF can give you a bit of a surprise, too -  but while I still got me strength I’d rather hang about with a younger set. So that’s why … well,  I s’pose I’m a bit of an opportunist … but that’s why I am talking to you now, as part of my freedom bid, to sort of let some younger rock god know that I am up for a tour or two and I won’t be needin’ any vi-fukkn-aggra to help me stand to attention.
BRR: do you have any …um… particular host in mind?
LKK: Nah, well… maybe one of them blokes from the Wombats… or British India… I’d rather stick with a guitar slinger…. don’t fancy me bollocks banging on a pianner bench all night… and it’d be a bit like a tropical cyclone in a drummers dunghumpers. Don’t want to waste me time with a ‘orn player, you’d spend almost every in with Rosy. Nah, I’ll stick with a gitar player. If it’s a mutual agreement, of course. An’ I’ll do the job good an’ all. Won’t do kinky, though. Well… I might.
BRR: Are you really a British knob?
LKK: Nah, Nar… I'm in disguise, mate, so Lenny don’t get the jump on me. Don't blow me cover, will yer? If he knows I'm tryin' to get me a younger blood supply he might up and trade me for a whanger like Kanye West… I know he’s been sniffing around for gorilla's arm like West's got; something that’s more 'V12 diesel' than 'straight 6 leaded fuel' model like me - I'm more suited to yer white boy pop gods. Anyway, I’ll be pretty safe with your readers, eh? Them two won’t blab this to Len, will they?
BRR: Doubt it.
