    The Police Honored In France - From now on, he's "Sir Sting" [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    The Police, much like Jerry Lewis, are popular in France. Last night, the band was bestowed with the high honor of knighthood in Paris by the French Culture Minister Christine Albanel. The trio was recognized for their "new sound"—perhaps the Parisians aren't aware of this being a reunion tour—and their contribution to culture and the arts.

    While we're not exactly sure what knighthood gets you in France, the band is admittedly honored. "We are very happy to be among your knights," said frontman Sting, speaking to the crowd in French.
