It's a big day for Lenny Kravitz, who was honored with his coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, celebrating his decades of influence in music, film, and fashion.

For the special occasion, the 59-year-old entertainer was inducted into the elite group at the ceremony in California on March 12, and two cherished people were present to welcome him in.

Lenny's daughter with ex-wife Lisa Bonet, Zoë Kravitz, and one of the star's closest friends, Denzel Washington, were on hand to give speeches celebrating Lenny.

Others like Hal Williams, Marla Gibbs, Wolfgang Puck, Earth, Wind & Fire member Verdine White, and many more friends of the Hunger Games star were in attendance to cheer him on.

Zoë, 35, was first up and before taking to the podium, sat hand-in-hand with her reported fiancé Channing Tatum, who proudly watched Lenny's induction and his partner's speech for a rare joint appearance.

"I've had the pleasure of knowing you for a long time," she joked. "And, I must say, being your daughter has been one of the great adventures of my life."

The Batman star praised her father for growing over the course of their lives, adding: "I've seen your incredible dedication to your art, but mostly, I've seen…through your shirts."

She continued to fire digs at her dad for his penchant for sheer, netted, see-through tees. "According to my dad, if it doesn't expose your nipples, it's not a shirt.

Her reported fiancé Channing Tatum was by her side to cheer Lenny on

"Sure, it used to embarrass me when you used to pick me up from school as a kid. But I've gotta say, at this point, I respect it. You really do pull it off. Your relationship with the netted shirt is probably your longest one…and it works."

After her last spar left the audience in hysterics (and Lenny exclaimed "wow!" behind her), Zoë added: "You two make each other better. And if it ain't broke, don't fix it. It's a beautiful thing."

She sweetly called being raised by a cool dad "awesome" and cited his "radness" coming from his love for life and his work, the people, and the experiences around him. "Congratulations, you're a star!"

Denzel, 69, then came up on stage to sing his close friend's praises, starting off with: "He's more than a friend. He's more than a brother. We're twins, we just don't look alike."

He recalled their long relationship, which began in their youth, having first met when Lenny was just seven years old and Denzel a teenager. "I love Lenny Kravitz, like I've loved no other brother in my life. Less is more…Leonard Albert Kravitz," the Oscar-winning star concluded, pulling Lenny into a tight hug before walking off stage.
