Before doing this Top 10 Most Searched Person On Google for 2013 in America, I was happy. But when I saw the results of the top 10 list, I was really sad. I blame television for feeding us all these crappy reality channels. This is the most depressing day of my life.
Anyways here is the Top 10 Most Searched Person On Google for 2013, sad but true.
10. Kanye West
I watch South Park, because it is to the point and most of the time relates to current affairs. They have a couple of episodes which make fun of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (who was referred to as a “Hobbit”). South Park is sending the right messages to the audience, but at the same time giving free publicity to these cartoons.
In an interview (Saturday Night Online’s Garrett Sits Down), Kanye West was once quoted saying, it’s “like being a police officer or soldier in war” every time he goes on stage. A person quotes something like that, and he is one of the top 10 most searched person of the internet for the year 2013. If that doesn’t depress you, I don’t know what will? Seriously America, you need to search for something better.
9. Katy Perry
People say “The french are rude.”, and Katy Perry experienced that at the NRJ Music Awards which was held at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France. Apparently, there was a technical difficulty when Katy Perry’s lip movements were not in sync with the audio that was being heard by the audience. Everyone is talking about the embarrassment of Katy Perry, because she was lip syncing. I hate to break the bubble, but most high other profiled artist like Madonna or Lady Gaga also lip sync, because it sometimes becomes very difficult to sing and dance at the same time.
It’s definitely not Katy Perry’s fault, as it was a glitch by the audio engineers and organizers. This controversy in France boosted Katy Perry’s search results in search engines, and managed to sneak her in on number nine in this Top 10 Most Searched Person On Google of 2013.
8. Selena Gomez
Honestly speaking, I have never heard of Selena Gomez and when I found out her age, I was literally amazed. She has been in the news a lot of late, when Russia denied her visa for a performance. That sparked some controversy and led the singer to cancel her concert, which was scheduled on September 23rd in St. Petersburg at the Ice Palace and September 25th at Olimpiisky Stadium in Moscow.
The former Disney star also had to back out of her “Star Dance” Tour, scheduled in Australia and Asia. Rumor has it, the cancellation was due to low ticket sales. So fans in Australia, Japan, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines have to wait until Selena Gomez schedules a tour in Australia and Asia in 2014.
7. Taylor Swift
In the 1946 movie “It’s A Wonderful Life”, Karolyn Grimes (Zuzu Bailey) said, “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings”. That statement became very famous and is still used in present day. In fact, it can even be used for Taylor Swift. It goes like this: “Every time Taylor Swift breaks up with someone, a Grammy nominated song is born”.
Taylor Swift is at lucky number 7 on this Top 10 Most Searched Person On Google for 2013. Just for fun, here is the list of Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriends and the songs written after the break ups.
Joe Jonas dated Taylor Swift from July 2008 to October 2008 and the song inspired by this break up: Forever and Always
Taylor Lautner dated Taylor Swift from August 2009 to November 2009
John Mayer dated Taylor Swift from November 2009 to February 2010 and the song inspired by this break up : Dear John
Jake Gyllenhaal dated Taylor Swift from October 2010 to December 2010
Conor Kennedy dated Taylor Swift from July 2012 to October 2012
Harry Styles dated Taylor Swift from December 2012 to February 2013
As per VEVO, singer Rihanna is the very first woman to surpass four billion, yes four billion total views on their website. 2013 has been a great year for Rihanna in the online world, as she became the most streamed artist worldwide on Spotify.
Beyonce started 2013 with a bang as she was chosen to perform at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. The halftime show was watched by 108 million viewers, but was only second best to Madonna’s performance the year before that attracted 112.5 million viewers. Beyonce is on number 5 of this Top 10 Most Searched Person On Google of 2013 list.
4. Justin Bieber
This is the first time I have actually opened Justin Bieber’s wiki page and started reading. I am still not sure why he is so hated on the internet forums, blogs etc, when he is the 4th most searched person on google America. Believe it or not, Justin Bieber is not even featured in the top 10 of people searched in Canada, his home country. If you are wondering who is number one, well he is none other than Canadian politician Rob Ford.
3. Kim Kardashian
“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” won the Teen Choice Award’s Female Reality/Variety Star Of The Year, beating other crap reality series like Dance Moms, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Married to Jonas and Tia & Tamera. Kim Kardashian is the third searched person in the United States for the year 2013. WOW.
Canadian rapper Drake is the second most searched person in America on google. 2013 was a great year for Drake as he won the Best Rap Album at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. He also was nominated for the Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “HYFR (Hell Ya F***ing Right)” , but lost to “Ni**as In Paris” by Jay-Z and Kanye West on both occasions.
1. Miley Cyrus
Ladies and gentlemen, the “Top 10 Most Searched Person On Google America for the year 2013” goes to Miley Cyrus. The daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus created controversy during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Because of that naughty dance, MTV presented Miley Cyrus the “Artist of the Year” award. If you ever wondered what the “M” in MTV stands for, well it actually stands for Music, yes Music. In the 80’s, MTV played only music videos.
Miley Cyrus is the number one searched person in America, but one number globally behind Nelson Mandela, Paul Walker, Malala Yousafzai and James Gandolfini.
That’s all folks. Hopefully we will have a more sensible list in 2014. Have a great year ahead. Cheers
