Love her or hate her, one thing is for certain – Kim Kardashian is definitely one popular reality star! In fact, she is so popular that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently topped the list of most searched for celebrities in 2012.
As if we need anymore of Kim Kardashian, she just topped the most searched for list. That’s right, according to Yahoo’s new list of hot searches for 2012, Kim Kardashian has come in number 3, only behind the search terms “election” and “iPhone 5″, which took the number one and number two spots.
That means that Kardashian was the most searched for person – celebrity or not – in 2012. Kardashian beat out other famous females such as Whitney Houston (who passed early in 2012), Kate Middleton (who was in the middle of a topless photo scandal), Kate Upton (swimsuit model), Lindsay Lohan (who has been dealing with legal woes all year), and Jennifer Lopez (former American Idol judge), all of whom made the top ten.
But why is she so popular? Why are so many folks searching for her? Vera Chan, Yahoo’s trend analyst thinks she knows why. “Kim’s notoriety has kept her at the top.” Kim Kardashian has been drawing lots of headlines in her pending divorce from Kris Humphries, but perhaps it was her new romance with Kayne West that has folks mesmerized. We may never know the real reason that people are obsessed with Kardashian, but sadly, it is true.
