U2 frontman and all-around-caring-dude Bono got knighted by the British Empire today.
The raddest part is that the Irish rocker made a Star Wars reference during the ceremony, joking that his youngest son thought he was about to become a Jedi instead.
Bono, 46, was named a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in a ceremony in Dublin.
"You have permission to call me anything you want — except sir, all right? Lord of lords, your demigodness, that'll do," the singer joked.
Sadly, because he is an Irish citizen, Bono won't have the title of "sir" before his name.
So..um…why else would you the title if people aren’t forced to put “Sir” in front of your name???? Man, he got robbed!
