Best Adrenaline Rush
Any live performance, whether it’s in a play or with the Citizens Band, a political cabaret group that I sometimes sing with. I get so nervous before I go onstage—beyond butterflies!
Best Comfort Food
I would fly to Los Angeles just for a cheeseburger with pickles and extra tomatoes from In-N-Out. As a kid, I wasn’t allowed to eat fast food—my mom [Lisa Bonet] was too health conscious—so when my friends got their driver’s licenses, I started sneaking it.
Best Lesson from Dad
March to your own beat. Yes, it’s a cliché, but this industry can be judgmental, and it’s easy to feel like you want to change according to what’s cool at that moment. My dad [Lenny Kravitz] has stayed true to himself, and that’s led me to do the same.
An 1800s silk robe from a London flea market. It’s too tattered to wear, but I have a thing for faded colors and beautiful fabrics.
When I turned 11, my dad decorated a room at the Standard hotel in Los Angeles in a ’60s, Austin Powers style. There was human bowling: You run inside a giant inflatable ball and try to knock down pins. To this day, adults say it was one of the craziest parties they’ve ever been to.
Best Saturday Morning
A drawn-out brunch over lots and lots of food with good friends and family. I always order a Bloody Maria, a Bloody Mary with tequila instead of vodka. And then I go home and nap.
