We all know Kim Kardashian is popular, and it turns out 2012 search statistics gathered by Bing prove that fact, as Kim Kardashian is the most-searched for person — and she even beat Justin Bieber, who was knocked down a peg to spot number two, a position The Beebz isn’t all that familiar with. Among the other most-searched for names were Miley Cyrus (3), Rihanna (4), Lindsay Lohan (5), Katy Perry (6), Selena Gomez (7), Jennifer Aniston (8), Nicki Minaj (9), Taylor Swift (10).
It’s truly amazing how fascinated the world is with pop culture and its Celeb World happenings. In a time you’d think be dominated by the political landscape, President Barack Obama ranked 46th on the list of top-searched people and Mitt Romney came in at 43. Sort of crazy, huh?
According to a Bing press release, other top 2012 searches on Bing include: “Peyton Manning as the most-searched athlete; American Idol as most-searched TV show; The Avengers as most-searched movie; Serena Williams as most-searched Olympic athlete; Michael Kors as the most-searched fashion designer; Ellen DeGeneres as the most-searched daytime talk show; and Psy’s “Gangnam Style” as the most-searched song.”
Chris Brown and Rihanna captured people’s curious minds, as they were the most-searched celeb couple, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson coming in at a close second. Snoozefest couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrived at number 6 and Beyonce and Jay-Z finished out in the bottom spot of the top ten. The biggest celebrity event was the birth of Beyonce’s baby and, surprisingly, Whitney Houston’s death comes in at number 3, which is a bit surprising given the sheer amount of talk and coverage surrounding the event.
