PINT SIZED POP NIGHTMARE Justin Bieber is the most searched-for celebrity on Microsoft's Bing search engine.
What this says about Bing users is not for us to comment on, but this year they stopped being fascinated by Kim Kardashian, who fell back into the number two position, and lost interest in Barack Obama, who dropped from fifth to 49th place.
The US President was replaced in hearts, minds and internet searches with Jennifer Lopez, according to Bing's data. So perhaps the actress will have a good election year.
This time last year Bieber was of less interest to Bing users and at number six position was behind other worthy people-to-know-about like Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock. He now sits proud at the top of two lists, the most searched-for musician and most searched-for celebrity.
Presidentlal rival Lopez is a new entrant to the wilderness that is Bing users' likes, and entered the top ten along with teeth and tats actresses and singers Jennifer Lopez, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Megan Fox, and Miley Cyrus.
Other things that kept Bing users occupied in the past year were the UK Royal Wedding, the size of Beyonce's stomach, and "Lady Gaga Coming Out in the Egg". µ
