Singer Lenny Kravitz says he finds leisure in decorating when he’s not rocking out on his guitar on stage.
The 47-year-old rocker, who owns an interior design company, told Today Show’s co-host Ann Curry after a performance on the Rockafeller Plaza in New York City on Friday that he is currently working on a pair of new design projects in Miami.
“That’s my day gig.” Kravitz said. “I have always been into it. I started my firm 13 years ago and now I am doing this 46-story tower in Miami called Paramount Bay which is an amazing project.”
The singer also announced that he was involved in another project with famed designer Philippe Starck for the new SLS Hotel in South Beach, which is scheduled to open in 2012.
“He asked me to do the top floor of the Presidential Suite,” he explained. “So it’s quite an honor to be working with someone of that magnitude. ”
The “Let Love Rule” hitmaker has also designed the inside of the upscale Delano hotel in Miami Beach, among other projects.
“I see leisure time as any time I’m doing something else,” he explains. “If I’m on tour and have an afternoon off to work on a design project, that’s leisure. Whatever I’m feeling or what the time allows — that’s what I do.”
Kravitz, who recently wrapped up filming “The Hunger Games,” which will be released in theatres next year, is set to go on tour to promote his ninth studio album “Black and White America.”
