Who Was the Most Searched Celeb of 2013?!

Kim Kardashian & Beyonce

2013 is coming to a close, and the record-holders from the past 12 months are being revealed little-by-little. Most recently, the list of the most searched celebrities of 2013 were announced, and while the earner of the top spot certainly holds a ton of star power, the results may surprise you a bit.

Although Kim Kardashian made headlines non-stop this year for her pregnancy and engagement, the reality star didn’t top the list (although in 2012, she did). It was Beyonce who beat out the reality star for the top spot, but that doesn’t mean Kim didn’t get a ton of online hits — she came in at No. 2.

Following, in order, was Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Amanda Bynes, Miley Cyrus and Barack Obama. Of those stars, Kim and Miley are the only two to make Barbara Walters’ Top 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year list, as well.
