A recent study conducted by CelebTattler put Amber Heard at the top of the “most Googled celebrity” list. This result is unsurprising, considering her involvement in a widely publicized lawsuit alongside ex Johnny Depp.

Amber Heard was searched on Google an average of 5.6 million times each month in 2022.

Tom Brady has taken the title of the most-searched sports star in 2022. He is also the fourth most Googled celebrity overall. He was Googled an average of 4.06 million times per month this year. Between his retirement announcement in February and, more recently, his divorce from his wife, Giselle Bundchen, it's no wonder he's made the top four on this list.

Pete Davidson has been in the spotlight a few times this year.

More recently, he has been in the news over his potential new flame, Emily Ratajkowski. Davidson was Googled 3.2 million times on average each month this year.

Elon Musk

Musk's Twitter takeover has landed him in the spotlight a few different times this year. First, he was buying Twitter, then he was trying to back out of buying Twitter, and then he ended up buying Twitter. Then he started laying off employees, and then he introduced Twitter Blue. Most recently, thanks to “verified” accounts impersonating celebrities or other well-known individuals, Twitter Blue has been deactivated until the bugs can be worked out.

Musk was Googled 3.19 million times on average this year.

Will Smith
