Lenny Kravitz flashes peace sign in 1960s-inspired look ahead of surprise appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!… then oozes rock star cool in all-black for Shotgun Wedding premiere
He wasn’t among the list of celebrity guests for Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
But that didn’t stop rocker Lenny Kravitz from making a surprise stop at the Hollywood studio where the late night talk show is taped to say hello to host Jimmy Kimmel.
And as always, the singer-songwriter looked every bit the rock star with his fashion choices when he arrived at the studio gate, where he was greeted by security and a group of enthusiastic fans, and later when he went to the premiere for Shotgun Wedding at the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Kravitz, 58, made his way to a back gate and was easily recognized by security, who then proceeded to open the gate and whisk him on to the studio grounds.
Looking almost exactly as he did when he dropping hits like Let Love Rule, Always On The Run and Are You Gonna Go My Way in the early 1990s, the New York City native was the picture of rocker cool in dark brown pants that hugged lean physique before flaring at the bottom.
He also wore a brown, red ad orange-patterned shirt underneath a very cool cropped brown leather jacket and tan leather boots.
And of course, the Fly Away star had his thick dark dreadlocks flowing long past his shoulders, while also sporting cool dark sunglasses.

It turns out one of the three guests for Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! is Jennifer Lopez, who’s out promoting her new film Shotgun Wedding.
While Lopez and Josh Duhamel play the roles of the lead actors in the romantic action comedy film, Kravitz also scored a smaller part in the film that drops on Amazon Prime Video on January 27.
With that in mind, the musician-turned-actor made his surprise appearance on Kimmel while Lopez was on stage chatting with the host, which got a roar from the live audience.
Kravitz plays Sean, the globetrotting ex-flame of Lopez’s character, Grace, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie also stars Sônia Braga, Jennifer Coolidge, Cheech Marin, D’Arcy Carden, Selena Tan and Desmin Borges, among others.

The musician has done a number of roles in films and television over the years, mostly playing himself, but he has had several character roles as well, which includes in The Hunger Games (2012), The Butler (2013) and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013).
The multi-instrumentalist has reportedly been hard at work on new music over the last year-and-a-half. Back in September of 2021, he took to Twitter and posted a photo of himself with his famous ripped abs on display, where he revealed he had been working on more than just one new record.
‘2:37pm. Good morning. All nighter in the studio last night. 3 albums on the horizon. Going back in. Love,’ he shared in the tweet at the time.
Kravitz’s last studio album release came in September 2018 when he dropped Raise Vibration, which produced seven singles, including It’s Enough, Low and 5 More Days ‘Til Summer.
