Canadians really like to Google beautiful people.

According to the search engine company's 2012 'Most Searched' lists — which were released Wednesday morning — we have a penchant for finding out what the stylish set is up to, whether a person is in film, music or politics.

And, really, who could blame us? From Kate Middleton to Justin Bieber, there's always something on the go with the famous faces we often Google.

Google's Most Searched Style Stars Of 2012

Drake
