Bob Dylan Finally Agrees to Accept Nobel Prize
Act casual, Bob. The famously award-shunning songwriter’s prize for literature, which he won in October 2016, has been languishing with the Swedish Academy. But this weekend — while he’s already in Stockholm for two concerts — he’ll finally make time to pick it up. Dylan has so far neglected his duties as a Nobel Prize winner, including delivering a lecture, a requirement if he wants to receive the $900,000 prize money. Characteristically, Dylan plans to collect his award privately, and will deliver the lecture on tape.
