Bob Dylan’s Website Scrubs Mention of Winning Nobel Prize in Literature

Bob Dylan's website takes down acknowledgment that he is a Nobel Prize winner 1:01

Bob Dylan recently added Nobel Prize laureate to his list of accomplishments — but fans of the famously elusive singer-songwriter wouldn't know it by looking at his official website.

BobDylan.com has quietly scrubbed the one mention of him as the "winner of the Nobel Prize in literature" in "the lyrics" section of the site following his surprise win last week.

The 11-time Grammy winner — on tour in support of a new album — has made no public mention of the prestigious prize. But the simple online acknowledgement seemed as if he were changing his tune about accepting the honor.

Despite the increased attention showered on him, the Swedish Academy said it tried unsuccessfully to make contact with his reps. The board said Monday it had given up trying to confirm whether he'll even attend a Stockholm banquet honoring him and other Nobel winners in December.

Dylan, 75, is the first songwriter to win the Nobel literature prize. He is known for taking his time to recognize awards.
