Beyoncé Is Most-Searched Person on Bing

Singer Beyoncé Knowles was named the most-searched person in 2013 on Bing, the online search engine said on Monday, edging out 2012's list-topper reality television star Kim Kardashian, who came in second.

Beyoncé, 32, topped the list in a year where she made a carefully choreographed return to the musical spotlight after taking time out to give birth to her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, with rapper husband Jay Z.

The singer performed at President Barack Obama's inauguration in January, at the Super Bowl in February and kicked off a worldwide tour, "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour," in April.

The notoriously private singer also revealed glimpses of her life with Jay Z and their baby in a February HBO documentary.
