Kim Kardashian surpasses Justin Bieber as most searched celebrity on Bing

By Gina DiFalco,

Kim Kardashian has knocked Justin Bieber off of his spot as No. 1 searched celebrity on Bing.

On Tuesday, the search engine company announced that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians is the top search celebrity of 2012.

Reuters reports that in 2010, Kardashian, 32, held the top spot but the “As Long As You Love Me” singer, 18, stole it in 2011.

Jennifer Lopez, X Factor host Britney Spears, former Transformers star and new mom Megan Fox and Lady Gaga have vanished from the list of top 10 celebrities most searched on Bing, and newcomers Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Nicki Minaj and Red singer Taylor Swift have replaced them.

Meanwhile, The International Business Times reports that while Kardashian is the most searched celebrity on Bing, the iPhone 5 is the most searched news story. However, Kardashian remains the top searched term overall.

Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe also took the top 3 spots in the Reality TV Star category of search terms.
