Willie Nelson Did a Bic Lighter Commercial with Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart, and He's Releasing a New Album


Willie Nelson once said he'd rather die than retire, and he was not kidding. He's got a bunch of stuff going on right now . . . including a very funny Bic lighter commercial that also stars Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart.

It shows Willie using a Bic to light up a fat . . . candle. Then he gets a video call from Snoop, who lost his Bic, followed by Martha, who pops up looking for her candle. Willie plays innocent as he lights his "favorite herb scent" candle.



There's also music news from Willie. He's going to release a new album on March 3rd. It's a tribute to legendary Nashville songwriter Harlan Howard, and it's called "I Don't Know a Thing About Love"



Harlan has written hits for Ray Charles, Patsy Cline, and Conway Twitty. He's also THE guy who described country music as "three chords and the truth".


The album's first single is Willie's take on "Busted."  

Did we mention Willie will turn 90 on April 29th?

Limp Bizkit's Borland Sues Ex For Defamation.

Wes Borland is suing his ex-wife for defamation. The Limp Bizkit guitar player has brought an action against Queen Kwong lead singer Carré Callaway, claiming she has violated the terms of their divorce settlement. The 2020 deal specifies how the former celebrity couple is allowed to speak about each other in public.

“Neither party may make speeches, give interviews, or make public statements that defame the other party," states the agreement, and Borland accuses Callaways of doing just that. Borland points to an article in Bandcamp Daily last year in which Callaway suggests one of their cats “died a week after he left because he was the only one who could care for her. That's the hardest thing to get over, honestly."

Borland also points to a separate article in which his ex accused him of “gaslighting” her. In response, the Queen Kwong rocker called the suit “a tactic to bully, intimidate and silence me.”
