Bob Dylan has decided not to attend the Nobel Prize ceremonies after all. The musician is this year’s Nobel laureate in the field of literature. He cited pre-existing commitments as the reason.

That’s right literature, not music.

The Nobel people announced the news in an official statement. While acknowledging that Dylan’s decision not to attend is unusual, they said that it is not without precedent.

“Yesterday evening the Swedish Academy received a personal letter from Bob Dylan, in which he explained that due to pre-existing commitments, he is unable to travel to Stockholm in December and therefore will not attend the Nobel Prize Ceremony, ” read the statement. “He underscored, once again, that he feels very honored indeed, wishing that he could receive the prize in person.”

While attendance at the ceremony is not mandatory, Bod Dylan is, however, required to give an official lecture within the next six months.

Bod Dylan is not without his critics for this decision. The Atlantic has a story about it tiled “It Pays to Be a Jerk, Bob Dylan Edition.”
