We’re usually not into guys who rock gold eyeshadow, but when Lenny Kravitz wears it in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (in theaters today), we love it. For his recurring role as Katniss’s stylist Cinna, Kravitz found a kindred spirit in his character’s edgy on-screen style and the movie’s megawatt star Jennifer Lawrence.

The rocker-turned-actor talked to ESSENCE about their relationship (she’s like a sister to his daughter Zoe), the future of Cinna (spoiler alert!) and why he’s ready to sing again.

ESSENCE: In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, why is Cinna the last person Katniss sees right before she’s released to fight the other Tributes?
LENNY KRAVITZ: He’s the one putting together Katniss’s outfits and her gear. He’s walking her there to make sure she’s together and ready to go. And you saw what happens next.

ESSENCE: If you could be a Tribute, what would be your skill?
KRAVITZ: I’m a survivor. So I would find my way out of the problem. I’m pretty good at seeing through problems and getting out of the other end.

ESSENCE: When you weren’t on set, did you work on a new album?
KRAVITZ: Yes, I started writing and putting it together. After I’d done The Butler and Hunger Games, I was hungry for the music again. I’m in the Bahamas finishing the album. It’s a really exceptional record. I think it’s my best work, ever. I’m really excited to put it out and go on a world tour next year.

You can check out the full interview over on Essence.com. We’re big Lenny Kravitz fans and love that he’s been part of The Hunger Games movies so far. Oh, and we’ll be hearing new music from him? Even better!
