Bob Dylan To The Nobel Peace Committee And Their Prize: "Nah"
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 6 months ago
So it looks like Bob Dylan is going to stick with the world’s view of him as an enigma and fairly whiney singer, over a Nobel Peace Price Laureate. Good on you Bob. Good on you.
Bob’s made it quite clear, after a week of not acknowledging any direct contact from the prize committee, that he doesn’t want any part of the the title or the award.
“It took Bob Dylan the best part of a week to acknowledge that he had been awarded the Nobel prize in literature, and even then only in the most dismissive way: an update to a page on his website plugging a new collection of his lyrics. But now it appears even that paltry nod went too far for the mercurial music legend.
The simple words ‘winner of the Nobel prize in literature’, which appeared on the page for The Lyrics: 1961-2012, have now been removed. Bob Dylan, Nobel laureate, is once again plain Bob Dylan.”
