Some lucky fans caught the LOLAWOLF singer as she trekked through the Big Apple and nabbed a photo-op.

Zoe then made her way to "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" where she talked about some upcoming gigs at a few summer festivals, following in the footsteps of her legendary rockstar dad Lenny Kravitz. Check it:

Then, Zoe and Jimmy got dressed in inflatable suits for a game of flip cup where Zoe defeated Jimmy (for the 2nd time) on his own show:


This morning....

The heiress to her parent's Hollywood throne stopped by "LIVE with Kelly & Michael" for a fun segment. Chick swiped a pair of green pumps from Kelly Ripa's dressing room to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and revealed she freaked out because she didn't have on any green so she borrowed Kelly's shoes. When she walked out she asked Kelly, "Do you like my shoes? They're yours!"

She totally grew up as an only child (long before her younger siblings entered the picture).  Definitely ish they do.  Ha! Check it above.

The 29-year-old actress will star as a house slave who tries to escape slavery for a better life on the new series. The show is getting rave reviews.

Jurnee told HuffPost Live she hopes the show will open up dialogue about the unsung herso of the Underground Railroad and the effects of slavery that still plague the black community today. She said,

“’Underground' is such an important show for us to be having aired right now because it will create a dialogue and it forces us to look at ourselves. Art holds a mirror up to society.”

She then addressed overt and systemic racism and how they disproportionately impact black Americans. She continued,

“We still see our brothers and sisters being killed by police officers. We still see them being locked up at a faster rate. We still see us battling with poverty and mental illness at higher rates. These are all systemic injustices that come from racism, that come from slavery. Until we really heal the wounds that we dealt with during slavery, I don't think we'll be a fully realized country.”


Peep the clip below:

After the interview...

Jurnee and her hubby spotted her face on a bus advertisement for the “Underground” series and Jurnee was freaking out! She captioned, “Y'all look at GOD!! When I tell you I've been working my entire life & I've never been a part of a project like this! That's my face on a bus!??! What?!? Don't y'all ever give up on your dreams...cuz right when u want to give up, that could be the moment that God wants to you to push through and claim your blessing. Keep pushing my people! #blessed #dreamscometrue” Cute!
