PARIS (AP) - Rock star Bono on Thursday urged French President Jacques Chirac to be "a champion for Africa" when he and other world leaders meet next week to discuss a new African development plan.

Chirac has "been in Africa more than any other politician," the U2 singer and activist said before meeting the French leader at his presidential Elysee Palace.

"He has a passion for Africa and I want to turn his passion into cash," Bono said.

France and other Group of Eight nations will discuss the new plan for Africa at a June 26-27 meeting in Canada. It offers a package of trade and aid help for Africa, coupled with assistance in ending civil wars and improving governance across the continent.

"We're looking for a champion for Africa for this year's G8 and next year in France," Bono said.

Chirac said he hoped for progress at the summit and pledged that "France will play its part."

The French leader said it was essential that industrial nations cancel or reduce debts owed by poor nations and improve development aid.

They've been discussing his outfit on PLEBA too. I think he's cool. He knows the media is going to say he is 'casually clad, unshaven' and his shirt tail is out and his socks don't match, but you know what? It draws attention to him. He stands out in a crowd. He's not just your typical stuffed shirt in a perfectly pressed matching suit. His outfits screams, 'LOOK at me! And while you're looking, how about LISTENING to me, I've got a few important things to say about this world!' He's better than your average bear!

I was thinking the same thing.... who knows maybe one of his kids bought him that tie and that is why he wears it all the time....

I think he DOES do it on purpose- that's why I said what I did.

He really is awfully cute. You can see the geeky, awkward Bono of the Boy/October/War days in those pics.

I think that's the tie he spilled soup on when he was in Africa.

hmmm, based on my business dress experience all the components of his outfit are terrific but they don't add up to much in this manifestation.

the untucked dress shirt, albeit a nice shirt, with a very nice tie screams of teen punk of the present day(ie blink, green day). i am aware bono is a 'free spirit' and his dress choices are made independantly but he looks like a bit of an idiot with the shirt untucked the tie is awesome. the shirt is awesome. the pants and jacket are nice. but together...they just don't add up for me. but hey bono can do whatever he wants to do. he's such a great guy of genuine and exceptional character

I LOVE his outfit. He looks rock star shabby chic. I run with an arty farty crowd and this is how they dress.
