Willie answers why

Wondering why Willie Nelson cut off his famous braid? Well that may not be the only hair he cut off...He told The National Post: "Tell them I also shaved my legs." Ok, so that was probably a joke :) But he did explain why and how he got rid of his famous hair. Willie says, "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."
So, now the only thing left to wonder is who did the cutting? If you thought Willie went to some fancy salon, you'd be wrong. He says, "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."

Is Ashton Kutcher going country? According to his co-star in The Killers, Katherine Heigal, he has co-written a country song with her husband Josh Kelley. Josh is Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum's brother FYI. Josh has decided to follow in his brother's footsteps and go country. He's working on his CD and while hanging out on the set of his wife's movie with Ashton, they co-wrote a song together called "You Drive." Katherine won't say whether it's going on her husband's country CD though and would only say "You're going to have to ask Josh!"
