FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18 2016 ENTERTAINMENT 39 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA CHITCHAT manent secretary of the Swedish Academy, who received the news about Dylan not attending, told TT news agency that she didnt know how or when he would deliver the lecture. The 75-year-old (pictured), whose lyrics have influenced generations of fans, is the first songwriter to win the literature prize, although literature experts bet on writers such as Salman Rushdie or Ngugi wa Thiongo. The singer didnt say a word about his prize on the day it was announced on October 13 when he was performing in Las Vegas. The American writer of Blowing In The Wind, Like A Rolling Stone, and Mr Tambourine Man confined himself to his songs. Danius said she was not disappointed over Dylan skipping the ceremony. The award is worth 8 million kronor ($870,000) in 2016. Piano-playing American songbird Alicia Keys is all smailes after releasing her sixth album Here Picture: AP NEW YORK: Alicia Keys is winning. Not because you say she is, but because she says she is. As the piano-playing singer releases her sixth album and reflects on the 15 years since she put out her Grammywinning debut songs in A minor, she feels content. Super content. When asked about her future goals, she replies: I already won. And I won because Ive been able to create and maintain what I believe is my artistic vision. I feel, like, so dope, she says with a laugh. Seriously, I just feel so blessed, and I feel so grateful, I feel so excited, and I feel so moved by music, maybe more than I have ever felt. Keys has had a string of hits and successes since 2001, winning 15 Grammy Awards and launching hits with No One, Fallin" and other tracks. Shes seen her album sales not match previous releases much like most of the recording industry. Here, despite debuting at No. 2 on Billboards 200 albums chart this month, only moved 50,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Here is somewhat of a departure for Keys, 35, who ditches love songs and tackles social justice issues, Here and now Alicias on to a real winner Bob too busy to accept Nobel STOCKHOLM: Music icon Bob Dylan will not attend the Nobel ceremony in December to accept his literature prize because he has other commitments, the Swedish Academy said. The Swedish Academy received a personal letter from Bob Dylan yesterday where he explained that he could not make himself available in December..., it said in a statement. He wishes that he could accept the award personally, but other commitments make it unfortunately impossible. He underlined that he feels incredibly honoured by the Nobel prize, it added. The Swedish Academy said it respected Dylans decision, but that it was unusual for a Nobel laureate not to come to Stockholm to accept the award in person. Nobel laureates are honoured every year on December 10 the death anniversary of the prizes founder Alfred Nobel, a Swedish industrialist, inventor and philanthropist. Several other literature prize winners have skipped the Nobel ceremony in the past for various reasons Doris Lessing on grounds of ill health, Harold Pinter because he was hospitalised and Elfriede Jelinek due to social phobia. We look forward to Bob Dylans Nobel lecture, which he must carry out it is the only requirement within six months starting from December 10, 2016, the academy said. But Sara Danius, the per Glimpse into Cohens peaceful death LOS ANGELES: Singersongwriter Leonard Cohen died in his sleep after falling down in the middle of the night at his Los Angeles home, his manager said. The death was sudden, unexpected and peaceful, manager Robert B Kory said in a statement. The details from Kory pro vided the first glimpse of how Cohen died. No cause was given last week in the initial announcement of his death. The statement also said that Cohen (pictured) died on November 7 three days before his passing was made public. The singer, songwriter and poet behind Hallelujah, Bird on a Wire and Suzanne was 82 when he died. Cohen had been in declining health for much of the year, though he revealed few details.
