Bob Dylan acknowledged his Nobel Prize win—but only momentarily. The musician has been oddly quiet about winning the literature prize, but a fan noticed that his official website added a line to this page that said "Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature." But by Friday morning, the reference had been removed from the site, NBC News reports. Per USA Today, the Nobel board has given up attempting to confirm whether Dylan plans to attend the December ceremony at which he would theoretically accept his award. (More Bob Dylan stories.)
