Last week, the world found out that WILLIE NELSON cut his hair. And this week we know why. It was just too much trouble.
--He tells Canada's "National Post", quote, "I felt like I was pulling a trailer it had gotten so long.
--"My hair was way down below my waist, it was a problem . . . it was heavy, it got dirty and I couldn't wash it because I hurt my arm playing golf. I was using a five wood and hit a rock, and when I hurt my arm that was the last straw.
--"I couldn't take care of my hair by myself and I had to have Annie, my wife, help me wash it."
--Willie was so fed up he didn't even bother hiring a professional to do the cutting.
--He explains, quote, "I was looking for a pair of scissors and I found one in the bathroom drawer and just reached back there and grabbed the ponytail and just cut it as close as I could get it."
This still doesn't answer my burning question, Where are the braids? Did he not save them for a museum, charity auction or something?
