Who Bumped Kim Kardashian to Become the Top Bing Search of 2013? You May Be Surprised USA Today

Microsoft has come out with one of the first of the year-end search trend lists, and the list shows a change at the top. USA Today reports that pop singer Beyonce was the most searched person of 2013 on Bing -- knocking Kim Kardashian out of the spot she held a year ago.

Kardashian had to settle for No. 2 this year, part of a sweep of the top five for women.

"Justin Bieber -- No. 6 -- and President Barack Obama -- 10th -- were the only two men who made it into the top 10," the story reports. "Also making Bing's Top 10 list: Rihanna (3), Taylor Swift (4), Madonna (5), Nicki Minaj (7), Amanda Bynes (8) and Miley Cyrus (9).

Swift is on the rise, climbing from No. 10 a year ago to No. 4. Bynes, Madonna and Obama are all new to the top 10, the story notes.

The report adds: "Microsoft's take on top trends has a decidedly pop culture bent, but Bing also offers a look at top news stories of the year. The birth of the royal baby was the most searched story of the year followed by the Boston Marathon bombing in April."
