Justin Bieber Overtakes Kim Kardashian as Most-Searched Person in 2011
Justin Bieber has been crowned the most-searched person of 2011. A survey conducted by Internet search engine Bing uncovered that the "Baby" hitmaker dethroned last year's queen of search Kim Kardashian, who slipped to No. 2, by moving from last year's No. 6 position to the penthouse.
The 17-year-old pop sensation, who also topped the list of Most Searched Musician this year, was the only male to make it into the top 10 of the search list. Aside from Kim, he was also joined by Jennifer Aniston, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Megan Fox, Lady GaGa and Miley Cyrus in respective order.
Being in a relationship with Bieber proved to be advantageous. The "Mistletoe" singer's girlfriend Selena Gomez made a leap from #50 in 2010 to #11 in 2011. Meanwhile, the likes of Sandra Bullock, Jesse James, Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods, Barack Obama and Kate Gosselin were out of the top 10 list.
New to the top 10 list, on the other hand, were Perry, Lopez, Lohan, Spears, Fox and Cyrus. While she was not even included in the top 50 in 2010, Lopez managed to sneak into No. 5 this year, while Perry went from No. 26 in 2010 to No. 7 in 2011. Aniston also climbed up from her position last year. She moved from No. 9 to No. 3.
Topping the most searched news stories of 2011 was the "Casey Anthony Trial". It beat "Osama Bin Laden Death" on No. 2, "Hurricane Irene" on No. 3, "Japan Earthquake/Tsunami" on No. 4 and "Amy Winehouse Death" on No. 5. In the meantime, Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding was dubbed the most searched celebrity event of the year.
