Live! with Kelly & Michael: Lenny Kravitz
Exercising his rock star swag, Lenny Kravitz had some explaining to do. The legendary rocker and actor was recently in an L.A. store called Church, frequented by Michael Strahan’s fiancee Nicole Murphy. He said that he was just giving her some criticism about the clothes she was considering buying, but she ended up walking out with a pretty big bill. The problem is that everything looks good on Nicole and Michael Strahan was footing the bill. Lenny claimed he had no idea.
Guest co-host Nicole Richie told Kravitz that she always knows when her dad, Lionel Richie, has been hanging out with Lenny. He comes home with a new pair of leather pants, wanting to wear it with a ripped tee and blazer. She then reminds him that he’s in his 60s and shouldn’t be clubbing with Lenny Kravitz, but at home with his grandkids. Hey, it’s Lionel Richie. He does what he wants.
