Some talk show interviews are boring, some only have one or two good moments — not Willie Nelson. He was on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Friday (March 20), and his entire interview is a treasure trove of awesome from start to finish — though, naturally, about 80 percent of the interview is about marijuana in some way.
Above, Kimmel asks him about “all the girls he’s loved before,” which is a nod to his 1984 duet with Julio Iglesias. Nelson plays coy about his love life, but says, “I’ve been very fortunate.”
Below, Nelson talks about selling his famous braids for charity and how you could plant them and grow a marijuana plant, and he also skirts around confirming the rumor that he once smoked pot on the roof of the White House.
In the very last video, Nelson reveals a creative way that he tried to smoke pot while on tour in Japan (where marijuana is highly illegal) and he also somehow manages to “tell a non-offensive AIDS joke, that’s unbelievable,” Kimmel marvels.
