According to Google, Inc., despite the ongoing world financial crisis, rising unemployment, the housing market crash, and other more personal troubles, people throughout the world are googling for nude pictures of pop sensation and Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus at least 550 million times per day with no success.
This figure compared to 137 million seeking info on the Iraq war, employment information, housing information and other subjects.
"I don't understand it", declared Carol Bartz, CEO of Google. "There are so many things that directly effect people's lives! I don't understand why people are Googling her so much!"
Bartz claimed that there are currently no legitimate known photographs of the 16-year-old pop singer nude on Google or any other search engine.
"I've searched the web myself. They may find some pictures of her in her underwear posing provocatively in front of the camera but that's all they'll find".
Yahoo Chief Executive Terry Semel confirmed Bartz findings.
Ms Cyrus herself proclaimed that no man or woman has ever seen her nude, with the exception of her parents and a boyfriend whom she would not name.
"I always lock the bathroom and bedroom doors when I get naked", the youthful diva swore. "I ain't getting naked on the web until I am 17".
Undoubtedly, hundreds of million of men, women and children will be doing web searches for the young star on her 17th birthday November 23rd.
