Kim Kardashian The Most Searched Celebrity of 2014

Though the year still has some days to go, the folks at Microsoft’s Bing search engine are ready to call it in favor of uber-celeb Kim Kardashian. The socialite-turned-reality-TV-star-turned-entrepreneur-turned-cover-model dethroned songstress BeyoncĂ© as Bing’s most searched person of 2014.

A word of caution here: The people who are the top 10 most searched names are pretty much the people you wish we weren’t obsessed with. So, scan the list at the risk of falling into a pit of despair.

Kardashian topped the list this year, Bing-sters note, thanks to her “buzzworthy Vogue cover, extravagant wedding to Kanye, and her photos that ‘broke the Internet.'” And, yes, I’m linking to none of them.

In the far more mundane world of actual news, Bing also revealed our top 10 interests.

The World Cup was first on the list. But most of the entrants indicated, on a more hopeful note, that when real news is happening, people are willing to pay attention and make some attempt to be informed: Ebola, Ferguson, ISIS, Malaysia Jet, Ukraine.
