Shirley Temple passed away yesterday.
The former child actress passed away from natural causes at her home in Woodside, California yesterday at the age of 85, her agent has confirmed.
"She was surrounded by her family and caregivers. We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and... our beloved mother, grandmother [and] great-grandmother," her family said in a statement.
Shirley landed her first movie role at the age of three and, in 1935, she became the youngest person to receive an Academy Award - a record she still holds - when she won a special juvenile Oscar aged just six. She starred in over 43 films - including Bright Eyes, Stand Up and Cheer and Curly Top but struggled to maintain her cinematic career in adulthood and retired from movies in 1950, though she continued to work in television. Following the end of her entertainment career, Shirley served as a U.S. ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.
Justin Bieber has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and drag racing.
The "Boyfriend" hitmaker was arrested earlier today in Miami Beach, Florida, after driving a rented Lamborghini, police sources told NBC 6 South Florida. There are no further details about the arrest at this stage but Justin is believed to be in police custody and a police statement is due this afternoon.
According to TMZ, Justin had just left a club and had a model in the passenger seat when he started racing a man in a red Lamborghini, who was also arrested. Justin has visited a number of place in the town this week and yesterday posted a photograph on Instagram of him at a skate park with friends.
Meanwhile, Justin - who reportedly spent $75,000 at a strip club over the weekend - had his home in Calabasas, California, searched by police last week after he was accused of a vicious egg attack on his neighbor. Justin's mother Pattie Mallette urged fans to pray for her son this week and insisted fame was to blame for his behavioral issues and wild antics: "I think so many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots and they go in with the right morals and they get influenced somehow. I ask that people keep me and Justin in their minds. I pray for him every day."

He claimed Tanner was also planning to castrate Justin.
