Bob Dylan on his Nobel Prize: “It’s hard to believe”

bobdylan2Bob Dylan has finally spoken up about his Nobel Prize for Literature, and he seems more excited to have won the award than many might think.

In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, Dylan said “It’s hard to believe” when asked about winning the award and felt it was “amazing” and “incredible” when first told of the award.

“Whoever dreams about something like that?” Dylan said.

Dylan also said he plans on showing up for the award ceremony in Stockholm in December.

“Absolutely,” Dylan said. “If it’s at all possible.”

As for why he didn’t initially respond to the Nobel Committee’s calls regarding the award, Dylan gave somewhat of a cryptic answer.

“Well, I’m right here,” Dylan said.

Dylan was announced as the winner of the award on October 13, but caused some frustration among the Nobel Academy when they received no response from Dylan about winning the award. Now they at least know he’s happy about winning and that he may also claim the award in person.
