AceShowbiz - Lenny Kravitz is apparently not shy to address his penis flashing incident after a photo of himself experiencing the wardrobe malfunction on stage went viral on Tuesday, August 4. The 51-year-old singer took to Twitter to post a screengrab of a text message Steven Tyler sent him responding to the mishap.
"Dude... No underwear and pierced...," the text message read. Steven was apparently upset as the "Fly Away" rocker never showed a glimpse of it to him though they have been friends for years. "F**k me.. You never showed me that s**t," the lead singer of Aerosmith added. Surprisingly, Lenny also joined in the fun as he put the hashtag #penisgate in a caption for the picture.
Many people commented on the incident and made the hashtag once trending topic on Twitter. User @ AllanaHarkin wrote, "Confirmed: Lenny Kravitz does not wear boxers. Nor briefs. Nor trunks. Nor jockstrap. Nor banana hammock. Nor thong. Nor pouch. #penisgate." Meanwhile, user @ErinMBarlow thanked Lenny for putting the hashtag. She tweeted, "#penisgate may be the greatest hashtag to date. Thank you Lenny!"
The mishap happened on Monday when Lenny was in the middle of a performance in Stockholm. The singer accidentally split his leather pants wide open and flashed his penis before the crowd. However, he handled the incident well as he quickly walked off stage mid-concert to change into another pair of skin-tight pants.
