Lenny Kravitz lives in a "trailer" on the beach in the Bahamas
The 47-year-old singer says he feels most "at home" on the island of Eleuthera - the birthplace of his mother - and found inspiration for his new album `Black And White America` during his time there. Lenny - who recently sold his house in New York but has permanent home in Paris - said: "It is the place I feel the most at home. I`ve been there on and off since I was five and lived there the last two years.
"I live in a trailer on the beach, low key with a dog, a hammock and a jeep I bought when my first album came out. I wake up at night hearing music, I hear it walking down the road in the trees, so it`s conducive to creativity."
Lenny - whose father is Jewish - insists he grew up feeling comfortable with being mixed race, but was shocked by people`s attitudes when he first launched his music career.
He explained: "I had a very healthy childhood experience of being bi-racial. But when I first came out in the music industry I was always told I wasn`t black enough or white enough and I didn`t fit a box or category. I found that interesting.
"But I`m not just one thing, and not many of us are."
