U2‘s BONO has been linked to a nomination for the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE.

The singer has been tireless in his efforts in lobbying Western leaders to eradicate third world debt, while closer to home he’s considered a major influence on the Northern Ireland peace process.

Although nominations aren’t officially released, it has been reported his name appears on a shortlist of 150 nominees this year, including the Pope and French President Jacques Chirac.

A spokesperson for Bono was unable to comment.

Last year’s winner of the Nobel Peace Prize was given to former US President Jimmy Carter. Bono was liked to the award last year also.
