Kravitz cover-up exposed in a very private little affair

The only people talking about Lenny Kravitz last week were the man himself and his family. But in a manoeuvre that certainly stretches the no-such-thing-as-bad-publicity cliche, Lenny is certainly suffering from over exposure right now.

For anyone unfamiliar with Lenny's mishap, #penisgate will give you some idea what's been going on. At a concert in Sweden the 51 year old's leather pants ripped on stage, exposing his little Lenny for the world to see.

Unfortunately most people go to concerts these days to hold their phones in the air, so it wasn't long before countless images of Kravitz's private parts were very public indeed. The old advice from your mammy about wearing clean underwear in case of an accident was obviously lost on Lenny, as he wasn't wearing any onstage.

At least he did the decent thing and exited stage left and got a new pair of trousers after his unfortunate wardrobe malfunction.

Kravitz even impressed his fellow hard living rocker Steven Tyler afterwards. He tweeted his admiration for Lenny not having any underwear and being pierced. But hopefully Lenny has learnt a few hard lessons from all this. Leather trousers over 50 are a no no, and wear some underwear.
