Rolling Stone cover star Zoe Kravitz talks about being starstruck by the Spice Girls at the VMAs, smoking weed when she was 14 and how she’s often embarrassed by her ultra-cool parents, Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, in this installment of “The First Time.”
Despite having two famous parents, Kravitz admitted that she became starstruck when she encountered that Spice Girls when she, as an 11-year-old, attended an MTV Video Music Awards. “Scary Spice let me sit on her lap,” the actress revealed, adding that her favorite Girl Power songs are “Wannabe” and “Momma.”
Kravitz also recounted about her first encounter with marijuana and how, instead of being mad, Bonet instead offered to share a joint with her daughter. However, having Bonet as a mom wasn’t always cool: Kravitz said that Bonet would belt The Sound of Music songs loudly in public, while Lenny Kravitz’s choice of wardrobe often embarrassed his daughter.
“The netted shirts, the nipples out,” Kravitz said of one time her dad picked her up at school. “A lot of fashion stuff; I didn’t get it.”
