Beyonce was named the most-searched person in 2013 on the online search engine Bing, edging out 2012's list-topper, reality television star Kim Kardashian, who came in second. Women continued to dominate the most-searched list for a second year running, as singers Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Madonna rounded out the top five. Justin Bieber, who ranked second place in 2012, dropped to sixth this year. Rapper Nicki Minaj and pop singer Miley Cyrus, who both made the list in 2012, also were in the top 10, joined by troubled actress Amanda Bynes, who came in at No. 8.

It'll be interesting to see what that last interview consists of, considering the tiny royal has yet to utter a decipherable word.
