Written by January 10, 2012

2011 finished strong for Spokeo, so let’s see who finished strong as the top people searches of December.

10. Miley Cyrus – MTV’s Punk’d is returning and Miley will serve as one of the guest hosts. See her punk Khloe Kardashian Odom here.

9. Harry Burkhart – Harry Burkhart has been charged with setting a large series of fires across the Los Angeles area. You can read about the investigation here.

8. Kobe Bryant – Kobe’s wife recently filed for divorce and he also has been recovering from knee problems. On a brigher note, Kobe recently surpassed 28,000 career points!

7. Beyonce Knowles – Wondering if Beyonce is still pregnant? The answer is NO! Beyonce and Jay-z are now parents to a baby girl which they named Blue Ivy Carter. Congrats!

6. Cameron Boyce – Cameron Boyce is a newbie to our list. Boyce recently landed a co-starring role on the Disney Channel comedy series, Jessie.

5. Kim Kardashian – Although Kim is highly searched, she isn’t highly beloved at the moment. One group is campaigning to increase taxes for Kim and other fellow millionaires, and another group wants to boycott all things Kim Kardashian.

4. Taylor Swift – Taylor Swift definitely had a good year, with her tour coming in at number 4 on the list of the highest grossing tours of 2011. In other news, it is rumored that Swift has been offered the role of Eponine in Tom Hooper’s new “Les Miserables” movie.

3. Barack Obama – Our 44th and current President is busy with his re-election campaign and recently joined Instagram, which may help with the hipster vote.

2. Selena Gomez – Selena has decided to take a break from music and focus on her acting career. She is already involved in 2 film projects, so this teen sensation isn’t going anywhere.

1. Justin Bieber – Not only was Justin Bieber the most searched for person on Spokeo in December (and most of the year), he was the most searched for person on Google in 2011! I think it’s safe to call 2011 the year of the Bieber.
