Of the many lists that are released at year’s end, a search engine’s top searches of the year is one of them, and it is worth noting – not only now, but in the future, as well – to keep track of who we were interested in at a particular time in the past. According to USA Today on Tuesday, Bing has released its top searches for the year 2013.

"Selfie" is the "Word of the Year 2013"

This year, the person with the most searches on Bing’s search engine is Beyonce. She has had quite a year. The year began with her making headlines – and therefore receiving searches by persons – for her performance at President Barack Obama’s second Inaugural event in Washington, D.C. She caused a stir when it was reported that she was lip-synching rather than singing live. Headlines about Beyonce continued throughout the year.

In second place, Kim Kardashian, who made headlines throughout the year – most notably due to her relationship with Kanye West and due to her giving birth to his child, was heavily searched. Last Year, Kardashian was number one on Bing’s list.

Singer Rihanna came in third, singer Taylor Swift is fourth, and Madonna is fifth. Naturally, one immediately sees a trend when looking at the top five. They’re all women!

It isn’t until number 6 that a male makes the top search list. Controversial singer Justin Bieber is the top male at number 6. It won’t be until number 10 that another male is found – who is President Barack Obama.

The other on the list are singer Nicki Minaj at number 7, actress Amanda Bynes at number 8, and singer Miley Cyrus at number 9.
