Lenny Kravitz is Fearless With a Snake Around His Neck on 'Uptown' Magazine Cover

Lenny Kravitz keeps it cool and fierce with a snake around his neck on the cover of Uptown magazine’s October/November 2014 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 50-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On having more children, and what his daughter 25-year-old Zoe Kravitz offered: “I would like to do it again. That’s the way I feel, but when I bring it up [Zoë's] like, ‘Slow down. Slow down. I can have kids. Slow down.’ So I don’t know if she’s too keen on it.”

Reflecting on the deaths of his mom and dad: “I thank God every day for my health. [Health], for me, is where it begins and the rest is gravy. Also [I'm thankful] for being disciplined. As they say in the Bahamas, there are a lot of talented people living under the bridge. A lot of folks driving cabs, fishing and working in the streets can act and sing better than people getting Oscars and Grammys​.”

On his future: “I feel like whatever I’m supposed to do or get or achieve will happen, and what’s not mine is not mine to have. My grandfather used to tell me when I was a kid, ‘Nobody can take anything away from you that is yours.’ He also used to say, ‘the best is yet to come.’”

    snake charmers sewed shut the snake’s mouth so it could not strike them. So, why would he be afraid… old trick… new take.

    My most sincere regards to Lenny’s Parents, I can understand how he feels.
    Snakes might be feared for their venomous bite but new statistics show spiders & bees are leading the majority of bite & sting hospitalizations. spiders were the worst culprits accounting for a third.
    * when out & about or at home, be aware that dangerous critters are there. when in the bush look for dangerous animals (especially in summer) on the trail & any tracks that are left. expect the unexpected & don’t seize on the spot if caught unaware (human nature). keep eye & verbal contact with animals if your presence is known & stay out of reach. do not attack, ignore or play (intimidate & antagonise).
    * avoid the obstacle & if threatened stay out of reach & find object(s) to throw to distract or scare it away (like attacking komodo dragons or crocodiles). waving sticks can be good with non-venomous species, spraying water or perfume, waving (‘over here’) & playing music have all been tried sometimes successfully.
    Venomous Bites
    * check to see if the danger is still around & distract the animal until it retreats away from bite victim. calm & reassure person who may be in shock, immobilise (don’t allow patient to run or walk). call ‘emergency’.
    * wound bandage with a firm compression but don’t cut off the blood circulation, winding bandage from bite site, then wrapping down to the fingers or toes & then back up to limb to the hip or shoulder (even a shirt/pants make bandages), use a splint to help immobilise & elevate the wound above heart to relieve pressure if possible.
    * talk to patient about what color or type of snake has bitten them if you did not see it, evacuate immediately to a medical centre for anti-venom treatment as every second counts.
