“I’ve Had A Lot To Learn”: Lenny Kravitz Is Finally Ready For Love…At 54
In the words of India Arie, Lenny Kravitz is ready for love.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, the 54-year-old singer admitted that he would like to have something special with someone special. However, what has usually gotten in the way is his career, which hasn’t slowed down since it started in the ’80s. He is a rockstar who constantly tours, he acts, does philanthropy with his Let Love Rule Foundation, and is also a pretty successful designer on the side. He just hasn’t been all that successful in the love department.
“I would really like [to find love],” he said. “But it’s difficult for me, being so dedicated to my art, which is not an excuse, it’s just difficult.”
At this juncture in his life though, he is finally ready to be dedicated to more than just being an artist. He’s hopeful that because he’s in a place where he is prepared, he will find the right match, because “things come to you when you’re ready, I believe.”
“I’m at a place now where I’ve been through so many relationships, and I haven’t been good at it all the time, at all,” he admitted. “I’ve had a lot to learn, but I feel like I’m at a place where I’m really ready for that.”
Kravitz was previously married to actress Lisa Bonet from 1987 to 1993, and they share daughter Zoe Kravitz together. When that relationship ended, he dated singer (and Johnny Depp’s ex) Vanessa Paradis for a few years, as well as model Adriana Lima, and was engaged to Academy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman. And before you get too excited and try to shoot your shot, he was spotted holding hands with 30-year-old Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Fialho in Miami just last month, so he may be off the market (and have a type).
But as he told Glamour UK back in 2014, whomever he decides to be with he won’t necessarily settle down for. They’ll have to be able keep up with his lifestyle, which these days involves splitting his time between a home in Paris and one in the Bahamas (where do we sign up!?) when he’s not on the road.
“When you have a tour booked for a year and half, you know where you have to be,” he said at the time. “You definitely have to find somebody who can move around.”
