In the “Hunger Games” movies, he portrays Cinna, a stylist and fashion designer. In real life, Lenny Kravitz recently had a wardrobe malfunction so embarrassing, he’d wish Cinna was there to quickly patch things up.
On Monday, during a show at Gröna Lund theme park in Stockholm Sweden, the 51-year-old singer suffered an incident of accidental indecency when his pants tore open as he squatted down. To put it simply, his manhood was exposed for everyone to see – and take pictures of.
The performer noticed the mishap and quickly went away to get a new pair of pants. The change took more or less a minute.

Expressen, a Swedish newspaper, reports a fan saying, “The producer stepped up and said that they had some problems onstage. A bit later Kravitz came out wearing other trousers. He said ‘sorry, I ripped my trousers’.”
Though Kravitz had previous experience of exposing himself in public. He had already posed nude in the past.
On Tuesday night, he addressed the malfunction by tweeting a text sent to him by Steven Tyler of Aerosmith using the hashtag #penisgate.

While PETA, of course, has something to say about the issue.
Another reason NOT to wear leather! We'll be sending Lenny Kravitz some extra sturdy #vegan leather pants…
