Yahoo! confirmed what we already know millions of you wanted to see Miley Cyrus twerk. The former Disney star turned provocative pop diva is the No. 1 person or thing searched on Yahoo! in 2013. What's more, the phrase "What is twerking" also topped the search engine's most popular list this year.

Miley bumped out realty TV star Kim Kardashian whose baby bump and birth helped her retain yahoo's place as the second most searched person in 2013.

Yahoo! host Ralphie Aversa says this list of top searches means literally millions of users have searched these celebrities, places, and phrases billions of times.

For the first time Yahoo! tracked the interests on the social media site Tumblr. Tumblr blogs "The reasons my son is crying" and "Hot dog legs" went viral.

But it wasn't all silly and famous names that took up our time. Although Yahoo! ranked Duck Dynasty as our No. 1 obsession, "Breaking Bad" is right below it.

Infamous murder trials with attractive defendants such as Jodi Arias and Casey Anthony captured our interest and our web searches. So did Obamacare. But the Affordable Care Act comes in at No. 6. It still has a way to go to catch up to the Internet's most famous twerker.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?
