Despite the tabloid frenzy caused by her pregnancy, divorce and engagement to Kanye West this year, reality TV megastar Kim Kardashian fell short of being crowned 2013’s most searched celebrity in America. Instead the title went to Beyoncé, according to the annual report released by Bing on Monday.

As second most searched, Kim beat out Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Madonna, who came in third, fourth, and fifth place, respectively.

The only men on the list were Justin Bieber and President Obama. Surprisingly absent? Miley Cyrus, though the controversial starlet tops the list in Australia.

Beyonce is horribly overrated. She can't sing, and she's been teaching little kids how to "twerk" long before Miley has...

Does it count that people are probably just searching Kims playboy photos and sextape?

Well yeah, she is hot and actually has a talent, Kim is hot, but zero talent.

I don't do internet searches for celebrities.  They are just people.  Unless it is someone who changes history, they are no different than average Americans.

I wouldn't search either one of them.  Tho, at least Boyonce can at least sign.  What does Kim do?  She is an enigma.  She has no talent at all, except as playing a tramp.


Me?  I look up political figures, and those who have some worth in this world.

It definitely doesn't come as a surprise that Beyonce is the most searched for 2013. Her undercover fans are the first to always comment on articles about her, such as the idiots who commented before me. LMAO Again, I'm not surprised that Beyonce is the most searched celeb of 2013. It's a given especially with all of the hate and negativity people love to evolve around her name. It's clearly obvious that those bitter people are her #1 fans and absolutely take great interest in her. Beyonce is one admirable and inspirational woman. She rocks!! People stay checking for her!! LOLz Now, I hope that Beyonce's ugly, undercover & bitter fans, will come to their senses & stop with all of the BS already. They just make themeselves look like the ignorants fools they are when they try to convince others that Beyonce isn't the phenomenal woman that we all know she is. We know better than that! Just like Kim, all of her bitter, ugly & undercover fans talk so much trash about Beyonce and claim to not like her but they stay looking for her. This article backs up those facts and all of both Beyonce and Kim's undercover fans look even more stupid!

Nothing for nothing but Beonce was in Destiny's Child and has done a successful solo usic career. She just finished off a world tour, had an HBO special so why does it surprise anyone. Kim on the other hand has a show that airs 2x a yr for a few weeks and she came in ahead of Kate Middleton, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber etc That to me is the surprise. So in actuality Kim is above Beyonce because her platform is nowhere near Beyonce's and yet she's been on this list either on top or 2nd for a few yrs now. This is the 1st time Beyonce has made it.

No shade, but who uses Bing?  If this was google this would be saying something: 

SteveRedmond, you are absolutely correct.

Yawn. How about neither? These aren't stars they are ;products of a relentless PR machine.

@Channah If you don't search neither, how did you get to this article and/or why did you read it and comment on it? Beyonce and/or Kim do mean something  and especially to you. Enough for you to take out the time to read and comment about them.

@tray Kim is definitely not above Beyonce. How stupid! LOLz I don't think this news should even be looked at as some sort of competition between the two ladies, but more of a LOLz at all of their haters. After all, their undercover fans claim to not stand them and make remarks about how tired they are of them. This news proves otherwise. The people who evolve negativity around their names, who make negative blogs, articles about them & the first to always comment on articles or anything involving those two ladies, can't get enough of them. This news is a big LOL in their haters faces and especially in Beyonce's undercover fans faces. All of you bitter arseholes stay looking for her with a flashlight. LMAO

@jadewalker19 Google?  Most dangerous to have anything to do with Google.  They keep track of all your computer use and sell it to anyone and all.  Where do you think much of your spam comes from?  I could go on and on about Google.

LOLz @jadewalker19 This article says that Beyonce's undercover fans actually do take interest in her, even though they say otherwise. This article says a lot. You bitter individuals keep searching for her. It is something. A big LOL in you peoples faces for being so foolish by denying your likeness and/or interest for her. This news involving Beyonce definitely said enough and was enough to lure you and your negativity on this way. Now wasn't it!!

Yawns* @SteveRedmond ridiculous comment & LOLz at it. Beyonce is definitely a star, one of the best selling global megastars in the world at that!! Both she and Kim had your bitter arse's undivided attention, didn't they now! You're a product of bitterness and a toxin to this planet.

@KimDellacroce @Channah 

I don't search for either of these people… or any of the top five. I got to this article because a link is posted on CNN as a question: "And the most searched for celeb is…."  I was curious to find out who it was. I was surprised.  Just because your little world can't envision somewhere other than the Time Entertainment section, you don't need to be rude to others like Channah. Go get your mommy to make you some breakfast.

@Channah @jadewalker19 But you can't deny the fact that Google is the most used search engine, and the best in terms of finding you what you are looking for.  


By the way, RIHANNA was the most searched on Google for 2013 which is why the Beyonce fans are really mad, as well as the publications that Beyonce's people pay to post these irrelevant stories about how she is the most searched on a search engine that no one uses.
