Dy­lan skips meet­ing with pres­i­dent too

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — As­so­ci­ated Press

Bob Dy­lan is not only skip­ping the cer­e­mony in Stock­holm award­ing him the No­bel Prize in lit­er­a­ture. He also skipped meet­ing with the pres­i­dent Wed­nes­day.

Pres­i­dent Barack Obama was sched­uled to meet Wed­nes­day with sev­eral Amer­i­can win­ners of the No­bel Prize at the White House be­fore they of­fi­cially ac­cept their award.

But White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, “Un­for­tu­nately, for those of you won­der­ing, Bob Dy­lan will not be at the White House to­day, so every­body can re­lax.”

Earnest says Dy­lan didn’t give a rea­son, but he notes that Dy­lan and the pres­i­dent had met pre­vi­ously and that “the pres­i­dent en­joyed meet­ing him.”
