The lyrics of Madonna's smash hit "Vogue" feature a laundry list of glamorous style and movie icons of the 20th century.  With the passing of screen legend Lauren Bacall on Tuesday, however, every one of them is now gone.

In exchange, prosecutors dropped the DUI charges.  A prosecution source tells ABC News that the state's case wasn't that strong to begin with.  As part of the deal, the Bieb will have to…
