Willie Nelson, country/folk singer/performer/political activist/actor has cut his waist-length pigtails while on vacation in Hawaii. According to the USA Today, his spokeswoman said that he cut it because he was tired of dealing with managing the longer style.

First of all, why does Nelson need a spokeswoman? How do you get a spokeswoman? Do you pay her by the question or by the week? What kind of ‘assistance’ was he on when he made such a goofy decision? I assume he also has an entourage, since he has a spokeswoman. Couldn’t any of them change Willie’s mind? Or hid his car keys?

In the words of the bard (CSN&Y):

I almost cut my hair
It was just the other day
It was gettin’ kind of long
I coulda said it was in my way
But I didn’t and I wonder why
I want to let my freak flag fly
