Nicki Minaj is one of 2010’s most ‘googled’ people
HollywoodNews.com: 2010 has been quite the year for Nicki Minaj. After stealing the spotlight on nearly every song she spit a verse for, Google reveals that she is also among the world’s top Google searches for 2010.
The reigning femcee from Trinidad came in fourth place, nearly beating Justin Bieber, on Google’s coveted, Zeitgeist list of 2010, which covered the curious search habits of UK audiences. Socialite, Kim Kardashian also made the list, but it seems that some of the most popular searches involved celebrity divorces, of which Minaj had some big competition in 2010 with the divorces of Eva Longoria and Tiger Woods.
While it may seem as though Minaj is a star rising at a meteoric rate, Dr. Mark Graham, research fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute warns, “Zeitgeist is reflecting popular culture, but that’s not to say Google doesn’t have a hand in deciding what we consume online…Through its elaborate ranking systems, Google is actively shaping what we have access to and what we know about the world.” Voice Online reports.
