Considering all her antics this year, it's not surprising that Miley Cyrus was Queen of Google in 2013, in addition to being Queen of Twerk.  The singer was the search engine's most searched-for person of the past year.  Her split with fiance Liam Hemsworth was also Google's most searched-for celebrity breakup.

Following Miley, Google's most searched-for people of 2013 -- overall people, not just musicians, mind you -- were, in descending order, Drake , Kim Kardashian , J ustin Bieber , Beyonce , Rihanna , Taylor Swift , Selena Gomez , Katy Perry , and Kanye West .

Taylor also showed up at #2 on the most searched-for celebrity breakup list, thanks to her split in early 2013 with One Direction 's Harry Styles .

Meanwhile, Google's most searched-for song lyrics of 2013 were for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ' "Thrift Shop," followed by Robin Thicke 's "Blurred Lines," Miley's "Wrecking Ball," and Lorde 's "Royals."  The most searched-for song of 2013 overall, however, was "Harlem Shake," followed by "Wrecking Ball," "Thrift Shop," "Royals," and Adele 's "Skyfall."

As for Google's most searched-for concerts of 2013, the top two slots went to shows by rock bands: Alt-rockers 30 Seconds to Mars and classic rockers The Who .  Pink 's Truth About Love tour came in third, followed by tours by fun., Justin Bieber, Beyonce, One Direction, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Bruno Mars .
