~~Willie Nelson thinks gay marriage should be legal.
Willie tells Texas Monthly mag, "[Gay people] should be just as miserable as the rest of us."
He adds, "It's ridiculous to me that this is something we're having a conversation about this in this day and age. I thought it was something that was settled a long time ago. Obviously, even the Supreme Court doesn't know what to do about it. They say, 'Don't ask me. Ask somebody else.' They don't want to get in the middle of the states on it. What are they going to do, come in and override states that have said it's OK? It's a mess."
Married four times himself, Willie notes, "I've been there and back a few times. It's not perfect, so why should we expect it to be perfect for everybody? ... I never thought of marriage as something only for men and women. But I'd never marry a guy I didn't like."
