Vintage Willie Nelson braids are being auctioned off. Wait, what?
This is a serious question. Do you want to bid on and own Willie's braids? Um, the immediate answer is NFW – no fucking way. Think of it this way. On a classic ep of The Golden Girls, Dorothy responded, "Frankly, Rose, I'd rather use Willie Nelson's hairbrush" instead of something unpleasant she was asked to do. So, you get the point. Nelson's hair is a special thing.
Nelson's braids are iconic and he is a legend, but owning his braids? Aw naw.
Nelson cut off these braids back in 1983 and given to fellow country star Waylon Jennings as a measure of support for Jennings getting sober. Um, okay. Not sure we get the connection, but...whatevs! It sounds like a nice gesture.
The auction will be on October 5th at the Musical Instrument Museum in Jennings' hometown of Phoenix. These are 31-year-old braids. We can't even.
Would you bid on Willie's braids?
