Yes we are crushing on Lenny Kravitz, yes he is 50 and it’s all good! This man looks amazing for 50 and it’s the simple things about Mr. Kravitz that makes him our man crush! He has great skin and amazing style. How can we not crush on him? Not to mention he’s a man with purpose. We’ve always sensed that he’s been on a mission. Lenny Kravitz has been in the game for a minute, his first album was released 25 years ago, in 1989 titled Let Love Rule. Remember that? He rocks out in the studio and the big screen, his most recent film role came in the 2013’s The Butler and The Hunger Games.

When I’m in the studio, I write the music, I play the different instruments, I produce it, I arrange it, and it’s a self-indulgent exercise. It’s the way I make my music. And when I’m acting, I get to leave myself behind, which is a relief. I get to collaborate with a director; I respect the director’s medium and all the actors and actresses. So at the end of the day, it’s about a character and it’s about a director’s vision. It’s a really good balance for being so intense and alone in my personal process of making music.

Are you gonna go your way? Why Lenny, we thought you’d never ask! Click continue to check out our man crush!

Zoe Kravitz is the stunning off-spring of equally beautiful Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. This talented star is quickly rising up among Hollywood’s elite and has simply been dazzling both fans and A-listers alike. This busy bee is pretty much everywhere at the moment. Earlier this week we caught her on the Met Gala Red Carpet with her parents and ‘acting up’ with new gal pal Miley Cyrus while last week she graced pages of Flaunt magazine topless and recently discussed with Marie Claire her past issues with eating disorders and body image and how she had to go back to those dark moments for her new role in The Road Within. And let’s not forget her ‘bizarre’ poker game in her underwear with Miley Cyrus

Is It Weird That Lenny Kravitz And Lisa Bonet Went To The Met Gala Together?

In my mind, Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet are still together, like romantically. And while I know that she’s married to fine behind Jason Momoa, Lenny and Lisa, with their alliterating names, funky bohemian style and comparable attractiveness, were a beautiful example of Black [Hollywood] love.

I know I wasn’t the only one who was bummed when it ended. But I took solace in the fact that they seemed to maintain a beautiful friendship.

And while these two have always been a shining example of what co-parenting and romances-turned-friendships can look like, they took it to a whole ‘nother level when they showed up at last night’s Met Gala arm in arm, as each other’s dates.

I still love seeing them together. Lisa is still gorgeous. Lenny is still fine and their offspring Zoe is stunning.

But after I stopped gushing, I thought about the weirdness of it all. I mean, if we take the celebrity aspect out of this and apply it to us mere mortals in the real world, this would be something of a scandal. I told y’all Lisa is married, with children. And Lenny is her ex husband, father of her child and longtime friend.

You know what they say, flames can be rekindled.

And while I’ve read that Lenny and Jason get along famously, I certainly hope Lisa ran this by her man. And I do wonder how that conversation went…

“Hey babe, Lenny, Zoe and I are going to the Met Gala.” 

“Oh, cool. Who’s Zoe’s date?

“She’s going solo.”

“Nice. Who’s Lenny taking?”

“Me.”

Where dey do dat at?

In fairness, since this was a family affair, perhaps the common thread, Zoe, asked her mother and father to attend the event together.

I could understand that…if Zoe weren’t a grown woman.

Either there’s something more to this and we don’t know the full story yet…or Lenny and Lisa really are on some different ish.

What do you make of these two stepping out together as each other’s dates? Do you think their status as celebrities makes this a little bit more understandable?

With warm weather approaching, it seems that weddings are going to be on the rise before Labor Day Weekend.

As many prepare to attend or be in a wedding, the impending season will be full of anxiety, excitement, great food and cherished moments to be had by all. For those who are the lucky bride and groom, you’ll have the hard part of memorizing vows, and making sure you don’t sweat out your tux and gown.

But those in the audience, well, you’re in for a treat, as you’ll have the honor of watching the couple’s first dance as newlyweds. Traditionally, the first dance is the most moving part of the wedding ceremony going into the reception. It is the moment where everyone—friends, family, whoever—all fade away and the spotlight focuses on the bride and groom. As someone who is close to either party (or just one creepy lurker), you get to see just how close and intimate the love between two souls is simply by the way they hold each other to the pulsating beat.

With wedding season soon in full swing, and everyone from your co-worker to your third cousin eagerly waiting to say “I do” to their significant other, MadameNoire highlights the top 15 weddings songs in no particular order your betrothed pals could play for their first dance.

Hear all the tracks in the list below, and share your own suggestions for the first dance song you want to hear at your next wedding.

Do You Believe In Putting Your Parents In A Nursing Home?

Comedienne and actress Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley on the hit show “Community” announced that after five seasons she’ll be leaving the show. She’s not leaving to pursue another acting opportunity. Instead, she asked to be let out of her contract so she could tend to a personal, family matter.

In a recent interview with TV Guide, Brown said that she’s leaving to take care of her ailing father.

“My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad.”

Recently, Lenny Kravitz echoed her sentiment when he appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show,” he said he had taken a break from music because he was taking care of one of his older relatives. He said in their family, they don’t believe in putting their elders in nursing homes.

I nodded in agreement. It was a beautiful sentiment really. When our parents, aunt, uncles and grandparents devote so much of their lives to taking care of us, it seems only right to return the favor when they need it.

But the more I think about it, the more I realize that a lot of people who ultimately chose a nursing home or assisted living type situation for their loved ones often don’t believe it’s the right thing to do. They come to the conclusion as a last resort.

Unlike Brown and Kravitz, they don’t have the financial means to stop working and take care of someone who’ll require constant watch and care. They learn, sadly, that they’re not equipped to handle their relatives’ health needs. Or they learn, tragically, that their loved one has now become a danger to themselves and other family members.

In high school, I worked at a nursing home/assisted living community and I saw some of the very real challenges the residents faced. There was the woman who had Alheizmer’s and would tell me, on occasion, that she was waiting for her husband to pick her up, when, in actuality, he had died years ago. Another woman, thought she and I were coworkers and would often ask me for a ride home. I had to come up with all kinds of stories. There were residents whose food needed to be specially prepared, residents who hit or spit. And then there were those whose diapers needed to be changed. They needed to be lifted to bathe or shower.

I saw that it was intense work and I was only there during meal times.

While I commend both Brown and Kravitz for making the decision to put their family members first, at the expense of their careers. But I think some of the stigma associated with people who find themselves in this predicament needs to be removed. They’re often perceived to be selfish, preoccupied and unloving. When in reality they could be overwhelmed, underemployed and unqualified.

Have you ever found yourself in the position where you had to place one of your family members in a nursing home? How did you come to the decision?

Idris Elba

We fell in love with him even though he played the cold-blooded killer and drug kingpin Stringer Bell in the widely popular HBO series “The Wire.” But the role forced him to hide his accent and once fans found out that Idris Elba was really an English actor, he became even sexier. After starring in a few moves, Elba went back to his television roots and starred in the BBC One series “Luther.” Elba will be celebrating his first Father’s Day this year. A few months ago he and his girlfriend Niayana Garth welcomed their first child, Winston.

Moguldom Films’ documentary, “The Swirl,” which looks at interracial relationships in America is now available for purchase on iTunes, Google Play, and VHX.

Since the U.S. Census Bureau has been keeping record, interracial marriages have been on the rise. While there are more than 2.4 million mixed marriages in the U.S., Hollywood has been a bit slow in keeping up with times and portraying more interracial couples, but low and behold we’ve managed to find a few favorites over the years. Take a look.

“I Love Lucy’s” Ricky and Lucy Ricardo

Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were one of, if not the first, interracial couple on television. Debuting in 1951, “ I Love Lucy” made groundbreaking history when it aired with the real-life husband and wife stars. The show followed the antics played out by comedian Lucille Ball while her husband looked helplessly on. The show lasted for six seasons and more than 60 years later, “I Love Lucy” remains popular with over 40 million Americans still tuning in.
