For all the headlines that Miley Cyrus grabbed in 2013, shockingly, she was not the most searched-for person of the year, at least according to the search engine Bing. That honor instead goes to Beyonce .
According to the search engine, Beyonce topped 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.
Bing's top ten list for 2013 is actually chock-full of pop stars, including Rihanna at #3, Taylor Swift at #5, Madonna at #5 and Justin Bieber at #6. Nicki Minaj was #7, likely due to her presence on American Idol. Amazingly, Miley Cyrus only made it to #9, just above President Obama.
Last year's most searched-for person, according to Bing, was Kim Kardashian . She was #2 this year. 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 .
