Bob Dylan won't attend Nobel Prize ceremony

PanARMENIAN.Net - Bob Dylan decided not to attend the December-10 Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockholm, AceShowbiz said. The music icon has informed the Academy about his decision in a letter. They "respect" his decision, calling it "unusual, but not exceptional."

The 75-year-old musician "underlined that he feels extremely honored." According to The Associated Press, "he wishes he could receive the prize personally, but other commitments make it unfortunately impossible."

It's unclear who will receive the honor on Dylan's behalf, but the Academy is "looking forward to Bob Dylan's Nobel lecture, which he must hold, according to the requirements, within six months [from December 10th]."

Bob Dylan is named the recipient of Nobel Prize in literature. Drama soon followed after the Academy's attempts to contact him were ignored. He was called "arrogant and impolite" by a member of the he organization before he later acknowledged the award and promised to attend the ceremony "if it's at all possible."
