Bono gets knighthood, but don't call him Sir

Bono has accepted an honorary knighthood in Dublin from British Ambassador David Reddaway. The U2 singer's new title is Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Although you won't be able to call him Sir, because he is not a British Citizen.

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair described the star as an inspiration in the fight against global poverty, in a letter that was read out at the small gathering.
