Texas street named after Bieber

Justin Bieber had a street renamed after him by the 11-year-old "mayor for a day" of a US city.

A temporary sign for Justin Bieber Way went up on Main Street during a ceremony in Forney, Texas.

City manager Brian Brooks says the request came from 11-year-old Caroline Gonzalez. She won a contest meant to get young people interested in municipal government. She's active in student council, recycling and community service projects.

Brooks said city officials weren't able to reach Bieber to invite him to Forney, which is about 15 miles east of Dallas.

The tween politician's act won't cost the community much. Officials said the sign was made for about 20 dollars and would only be displayed for the day.
