Pop star Beyonce has dethroned reality TV personality Kim Kardashian as the most searched person on the Internet in 2013 for Americans, in a year when entertainment celebrities reigned.

That was the verdict from Microsoft search engine Bing, which released data on top searches for 12 countries that showed Web users want to know more about the entertainment world than most other sectors.

While Beyonce outpaced Kardashian in the United States, she was also number two in Britain, behind Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber. Britain's number three searched personality was Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Barbadian singer Rihanna was the top-searched person in France, followed by Kardashian and Beyonce, the blog said. US actress and singer Selena Gomez was number one in Germany, edging Cyrus and Bieber.

In the United States, the top five most searched people of the year were all women, with only two men in the top 10 -- Bieber at number six and President Barack Obama number 10.

Facebook was the most-requested search item among social networks, ahead of Pinterest and Twitter.

Xbox beat iPhone as the top searched gadget among Americans and Iron Man 3 was the most requested movie. – Sapa-AFP
