Google’s Top Trending Selfie Of 2015 Will Surprise You

Here's who America searched for this year.

Kendall Jenner may have come away from 2015 with the most-liked selfie of the year, but that doesn't mean her now famous heart hair photo was most searched-for all year round. 

In fact, when we found out just exactly what kind of selfies people in the U.S. were searching for this year -- thanks to the folks at Google -- we were quite surprised. None of the Kardashians, or even Miley Cyrus, managed to nab that top spot. Instead, it was Malia Obama, daughter of President Barack Obama, whose "shady" selfie inspired Googlers to search away.

Essentially, the term "Malia Obama selfie" saw the largest spike in traffic for a sustained period of time in 2015, as compared to 2014.

Malia's selfie, in which she was seen posing in a Pro Era T-shirt, appeared mysteriously on Pro Era's Instagram page. According to the Independent, a rep for the Brooklyn-based collective said the photo was passed on by "a mutual friend of Malia and the Pro Era member." The validity of the photo was never confirmed, but that (clearly) just sparked the Internet's curiosity. 

Coming in at No. 2 was the Miss Lebanon selfie.

During the Miss Universe pageant, Miss Israel Doron Matalon shared a photo of herself smiling with Miss Lebanon Saly Greige. The photo caused a stir in Lebanon, as the country is technically at war with Israel. 

Searches for "Al Roker selfie" also spiked this year, likely thanks to his "insensitive storm selfie." Other trending celebrity selfies included Anna Kendrick, James Franco, Lady Gaga and and Miley Cyrus. 

Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian selfies were the ninth and 10th most-searched selfies, but that doesn't mean they're losing popularity. Searching for Jenner or Kardashian selfies has been popular for longer than just the past year, though the traffic spikes these terms saw in 2015 were less drastic than others on the list. 

Google also compiled lists of various trending terms, including celebrity weddings (Surprise! Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello topped that one), musical artists and song lyrics (which of course went to Adele and "Hello") and celebrity pregnancies (Kim Kardashian, obviously).
