Lenny Kravitz reveals he’s celibate and the public has responded. But before we get to the more eye opening reactions to Lenny’s announcement, let’s take a look at the rock star’s dating history and what led up to this shocking reveal.

Lenny Kravitz reveals he’s celibate

In an interview with The Guardian, Lenny said he has been celibate for years and for him “it’s a spiritual thing.” The interview was to coincide with Lenny’s upcoming 60th birthday which was May 26. Lenny adds that he hasn’t been in a serious relationship in 9 years and that he would probably struggle. According to Lenny:  “I have become very set in my ways, in the way I live.” And how does he remain celibate? Lenny says it’s simple. He just doesn’t let his desires take over.

Public reaction has been mixed

According to the public reaction to the news, people are either agreeing and celebrating the news or making light of it. One Twitter user wrote: “This is like having a Ferrari and never driving it.” While another actually applauds Lenny for his choice writing: “I understand the celibacy. A clear mind is a peaceful and great life. Remove the clouds for clarity.” But there is one celebrity who is not embracing this announcement. In fact, he is mocking it. And that is rapper and actor Ice T. Let’s take a look at not only his reaction, but others’ reactions as well. Not to mention, what to you think about celibacy? Could you do it? Do you applaud Lenny for at least attempting it? What do you feel about his reasoning?
