Mr. Dylan is a Hypocrite

with 13 comments

Bob Dylan is a legend. A genius. A hero. A prophet. And so on and so on. Oh yeah, he is also a hypocrite.


Stop yelling for a minute there. Don’t get me wrong, I love Bob Dylan, he’s a great artist, great musician, and great lyricist. But I hate the fact that he is a hypocrite and I hate hypocrites.

How do I know that he’s a hypocrite?

I googled “Bob Dylan’s quotes”. Guess what two Bob Dylan’s quotes that I found on a quote site?

“You don’t necessarily have to write to be a poet. Some people work in gas stations and they’re poets. I don’t call myself a poet because I don’t like the word. I’m a trapeze artist.”


“I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I’ll die like a poet.”

What do you think? Is he a hypocrite or not by making those two very different quotes? I have said before that I hate hypocrites, but after I discovered that Bob Dylan is a hypocrite, I still love him. It means that I am a hypocrite too.
