Google’s annual list of popular and most searched celebrities has been released.This list features some of the best trending people on the planet, based on the times they were searched on the internet. Whether it’s Charlie Sheen who revealed his HIV-positive status or Donald Trump who became, more famous than he already was because of his increasingly disturbing presidential campaign that catapulted him to a top spot on the list. Here we are with our own list of Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities who were most searched on the internet in 2015. Sounds fun?..Go ahead and read on.
Here’s our Top 10:
1. SUNNY LEONE
This one should not come as a surprise. Sunny Leone is easily the most searched Bollywood celebrity in the world. In 2012 alone, she was searched about 3.5 crore times, so we can easily imagine that the numbers have risen atleast thrice times or more by 2015.
2. CAITHLYN JENNER
America’s most famous family (yes, even more than the Obamas), The Kardashians never fail to make headlines. But this year, it wasn’t Kim who broke the internet with her magazine cover. Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn, graced the cover of Vanity Fair magazine and became the focus of intense fascination in June last year.
3. Katrina Kaif
Katrina was searched about 1.6 crore times. We are guessing she was searched more due to her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor than the films she did last year like Phantom. Though the film was a decent one, it wasn’t the blockbuster she needed.
How could she not make it to this list? She is one of those who proved that going underground for a while is the best PR move ever. After 4 years of staying away from the spotlight, she finally released her much-anticipated album 25. Her song ‘Hello’ broke all sorts of records and has become the ultimate breakup song of the year.
5. SALMAN KHAN
Salman Khan is always in the news, whether it is for the court cases or the films he does. ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ being a hit was a great move, leading to tons of online searches, along with his court case verdict taking lots of twists and turns. He was searched about 1 crore times in 2015.
6. JUSTEIN BEIBER
He made headlines for various controversies, as well as for his Comedy Central roast, where they literally, burned him. His alleged relationship with Kendall Jenner and now Hailey Baldwin as well as relations with Kourtney Kardashian and his tactics to displease her ex boyfriend Scott Disick definitely got him searched, a LOT.
7. KAREENA KAPOOR KHAN
The Begum has it all, the handsome hunk, the wealth, the looks and the searches. She doesn’t need to do blockbuster movies (though Bajrangi Bhaijaan did work for her) to get searched a lot. That face attracts everyone. Whether it’s a fashionable outfit, or her holidaying in the Swiss Alps every year, she knows how to get people to look her up.
8. MILEY CYRUS
Miley doesn’t have to do much to attract attention. Isn’t she famous enough already? But we think she feels otherwise. With all those crazy antics on Instagram and other social media, as well as passing crazy comments against her competitors in the industry, hosting the MTV Video Music Awards in those outrageous outfits, she was sure to have made it to this list.
9. AAMIR KHAN
He was searched about 80 lakh times in December 2015 alone. We must say, we are not shocked by this number due to the amount of publicity he gets. From giving controversial interviews about his wife thinking that this country isn’t safe, to his show Satyamev Jayate, there is a lot to talk about this superstar.
10. LINDSAY LOHAN
Not exactly in the news for the best reasons, but leading to her being one of the most searched celebrities on the planet. The actress who has a substance abuse problem, ran around naked in a departmental store last year. To make it worse, she created a big scene when the shopkeepers tried to help her and started shouting. This was a well-googled story by her fans who definitely did not expect this kind of behavior from the actress.
So here’s our roundup of the top 10 most searched celebrities of 2015. There are of course, many more, like Leonardo DiCaprio, Britney Spears, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor, Jennifer Anniston, Mallika Sherawat, Sonam Kapoor, Beyonce. But the ones in the list are way ahead of others, now we know the reason why!!
