Shirley Temple , the iconic child film star of the 1930s who went on to become a U.S. ambassador and a crusader against breast cancer, died Monday at the age of 85.  And even though it may seem that some of today's younger stars shouldn't even know who Temple was, her work was so legendary that they do --- and they took to Twitter to pay tribute.

Taylor Swift , prepping for the final show of her RED tour in England, tweeted, "Sitting backstage at the O2 in London, thinking about what an impressive and extraordinary life Shirley Temple led. Thanks for the memories."  She followed that up by tweeting an Instagram photo , which shows the following words, attributed to Shirley Temple, written on a memo pad: "There's nothing like real love. Nothing."

Katy Perry also saluted the woman who sang "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and "Animal Crackers In My Soup," writing , "You were the original cherry on top Shirley Temple! Rest In Peace!"

And Jordin Sparks tweeted , "I will always remember this song making me laugh: 'Animal crackers in my soup, monkeys and rabbits loop the loop...' RIP Shirley Temple <3."
