Unsurprisingly Bob Dylan Was A No-Show At Today’s White House Event For Nobel Prize Winners

Bob Dylan has been skirting the responsibilities of decorum surrounding his Nobel Prize For Literature award.

He’s also not attending the official ceremony in Sweden in December, but in order to collect the $900,000 cash prize that comes along with the award, he’ll have to give a Nobel Lecture sometime between now and June, which he’s still expected to do because who would turn down almost a cool million dollars?
