Bob Dylan Nobel Prize Mention Removed From Website

Since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature this week, Bob Dylan has remained conspicuously tight-lipped. He failed to acknowledge the honor at live performances, ghosted the Nobel committee, and now, a mention of the award on Dylan’s website has mysteriously vanished, the Guardian reports. The brief acknowledgement—“winner of the Nobel prize in literature,” which appeared on the page for The Lyrics: 1961-2012—was published for no more than 24 hours. Dylan himself may have had nothing to do with the removal; he remains reliably inscrutable. 

Many artists have reacted to Bob Dylan’s win: Tom Waits sent congratulations; Leonard Cohen said giving Dylan the Nobel Prize “is like pinning a medal on Mount Everest for being the highest mountain”; and Tim Heidecker paid homage with an impersonation. (Kurt Vonnegut, had he been alive, might not have been pleased.)

Read the op-ed “The World Does Not Need Bob Dylan, Nobel Prize Winner in Literature” on the Pitch.
