Yahoo!’s most searched celebrity of 2013 comes as no surprise: It’s none other than Miley Cyrus, who put a “wrecking ball” through the competition, even beating out Kim Kardashian and President Obama, Reuters reports. Miley didn’t reign supreme with Bing searches, however — that honor goes to Beyonce.

After Miley, Yahoo!’s second top search of the year is Jodi Arias, who was charged with murdering her boyfriend. Arias pleaded guilty in May and heavy media coverage followed throughout the summer. Obamacare was the next highest searched term, with the Boston Marathon bombing placing fourth.

Over on Spotify, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis placed first for the most streamed artist, interestingly beating Miley despite the fact that Yahoo!’s most searched celebrity released a new album, “Bangerz,” this year. “Can’t Hold Us” was the most-streamed song of the year, with the duo’s other hits “Same Love” and “Thrift Shop” following close behind. They were also the year’s most popular artist on the music search app Shazam, with more than 11 million “shazames.” Rihanna placed second with 8.4 million “shazames.”
