An 11-year-old “mayor for a day” of Forney, Texas renamed a part of Main Street to “Justin Bieber Way,” several international news sites reported on Tuesday, August 16, 2011.

According to reports, Caroline Gonzalez won the right to be mayor of Forney for 24 hours in a Facebook competition aiming to promote interest in politics among the youth. Gonzalez was said to be active in community service projects, recycling and student council.

As a mayor on Tuesday, Gonzalez‘s first act was to rename a portion of the Main Street to “Justin Bieber Way” because she really likes the young musician.

“Because I really like Justin Bieber. I like his music and I like him. And I thought, why not have a street in my home town named after my favorite singer?” Gonzalez reportedly said.

According to city officials as mentioned on several reports, the sign was made for about $20 and was displayed only on Tuesday.
