Remember when Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize? That was a while ago, right?! Well, after dodging the Swedish Academy’s calls and bailing on the award ceremony, Dylan is finally going to pop by Stockholm this weekend pick up his Nobel diploma and medal. However, rather than give his Nobel lecture IRL, he will record it and send it over “later.” Don’t hold your breath, Swedish Academy.
By the way, it’s not like Dylan is planning a special trip to receive the award – he’ll be in town performing on Saturday and Sunday (Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, says she’s, like, totally going).
This is just like when a guy ghosts on you and then decides he’s sort of interested a few months later and then ghosts on you again. Leave it to Bob Dylan to go fuckboi on the Nobel Prize.
