Google has released its year-end list of the top search terms of 2015, an annual event that is increasingly viewed as a key indicator of what was on people’s minds throughout the year.
Coming in at No. 1 on two of the key lists — top searches of the year and top people searched — is Lamar Odom, the former NBA star and Kardashian reality show personality who had a highly publicized drug-related incident at a Nevada brothel in which he almost died. Odom reportedly continues to undergo rehabilitation.
Another sports and reality personality, Caitlyn Jenner, is No. 2 on the people list, followed by Ronda Rousey, Donald Trump and Ruby Rose. Rounding out the Top 10 people: Charlie Sheen, Brian Williams, Rachel Dolezal, Adele and Josh Duggar.
On the search list, the No. 2 spot behind Odom is held by “Jurassic World,” followed by “American Sniper,” Caitlyn Jenner, Ronda Rousey, Paris, Agar.io, Chris Kyle, Fallout 4 and “Straight Outta Compton.”
Google also posted a number of other lists, including actors (Charlie Sheen at No. 1, followed by Bill Cosby), actresses (Ruby Rose at No. 1, Amy Schumer at No. 2) and dog questions (topped by “Why do dogs wag their tail?”).
