Singer Annie Lennox can add "Officer of the Order of the British Empire" to her resume. Lennox was honored by The Queen for her work with charities fighting AIDS and poverty in Africa. She is an ambassador for development group Oxfam and founded the SING campaign to help women and children with HIV.
Lennox said she was "getting my fake leopard pillbox hat dusted and ready" for the Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony. "As somewhat of a renegade, it either means I've done something terribly right — or they've done something terribly wrong," Lennox said. Love her humor.
Congrats to Lennox on being christened an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
What is your favorite Annie Lennox song? I love "No More I Love Yous."
