Beyonce has been named the most searched-for person of the year by the search engine Bing.
Web surfers helped King B top the chart thanks to her Super Bowl performance, her world tour and her family: daughter Blue Ivy and hubby Jay-Z. But another contributing factor was likely that lip-syncing controversy at President Obama‘s second-term inauguration, not to mention the fact that at one point she chopped all her hair off and posted a photo of her new pixie cut online.
Last year’s most searched-for person, according to Bing, was Kim Kardashian. Kanye West‘s fiance and the mother of his child was #2 this year, while Rihanna checked in at #3, she was #4 in 2012. Nicki Minaj made the list at #7, a move up from her #9 position last year.
Other names on this list include, Miley Cyrus who, surprisingly only made it to #9, just above President Obama. Among those who made the top 10 last year but fell off the chart this year: Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan, Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston.
