Lenny Kravitz still isn't shy when it comes to his underwear preferences -- namely, that he prefers not to wear any.

The handsome 53-year-old rocker sat down for an interview with MR PORTER, in which he talks about his signature style over the years. Kravitz says he still prefers to go commando, and addresses his infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2015, when his leather pants split as he was performing onstage. Since Kravitz doesn't wear underwear, he ended up exposing himself to the entire crowd.

“Do I have any underwear on now? No. Thus the problems that I incur," Kravitz notes.

"I didn’t rip them,” he now laughs about the NSFW incident in Sweden. “They became ripped. It was fine. But it was a little cold in Sweden. I would’ve warmed it up a little, had I known."

Kravitz also candidly opens up about his love life in the interview, including his intense romance with his ex-wife, Lisa Bonet. The two share a daughter together, 29-year-old actress Zoe Kravitz. 

“We were mirror images of each other, male and female,” he says of Bonet, whom he's still on great terms with. “It was quite extraordinary.”

The "American Woman" singer admits he's never found that type of love again, despite engagements to both Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima and Nicole Kidman. 

“Not that. It will never be that," he says of his romance with Bonet. "I was 21. She was 21. It’s that time when you are discovering yourself, your art. It’s a very romantic time in general.”

Kravitz notes that he's stayed friends with most of his exes, including Kidman, who ended up co-starring with his daughter in the HBO hit Big Little Lies. 

“Nicole is amazing,” he shares. “Zoe and she hadn’t spent time together since she was younger, since Nicole and I were together, so that was great."

As for how Kravitz manages to stay so young, he reveals that aside from obvious good genes, it's mostly due to his diet and rigorous exercise schedule. 

"I have done nothing to my body or my face,” he says. “I just wash it with water. I eat primarily raw, foods that are alive, vibrating, emit energy. I eat off the land in the Bahamas.”

“Weed was my vice," he does note about his more youthful days. "A natural psychedelic here or there. I never got into heroin or coke or pills.”

Kravitz counts one of his idols as Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.

“Mick can outperform a 20-year-old," he says. “The Rolling Stones’ stages are huge. I’ve performed with them, and you don’t realize how much he is doing when you see him going back and forth and back and forth for two-and-a-half hours. So if you take care of yourself, [age] doesn’t matter. You can have two Porsches in the garage from 1964. One’s beaten up and one looks like it just came off the showroom floor."

In an interview earlier this year with The EDIT, Zoe Kravitz talked about living with Kidman and her dad in Miami as a teenager, when the A-listers were engaged.
