Which Latina Topped Yahoo's List of Most Searched Celebs?

It has been quite a year for Jennifer Lopez, thanks to her widely publicized divorce from estranged husband Marc Anthony, gazillion business deals, and, of course, hit music.

Yep, the Boricua superstar’s name has definitely maintained a position in countless conversations surrounding entertainment. It’s no surprise to us, then, that the 42-year-old singer/actress was included in Yahoo’s Top Searches of 2011, according to Tr3s.

Jennifer Lopez Makes a $20+ Million Deal to Return to 'American Idol'

According to the website, Lopez ranked number five in the list, alongside the infamous Casey Anthony, pop star Katy Perry, and reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

J.Lo’s career has been white-hot this year. This past summer, we reported that the star is returning to American Idol as a judge and will be paid a reported $20+ million for the gig; quite a chunk of change. She also filmed the romantic comedy What to Expect When You're Expecting, which is set to hit theaters in May 2012 and shot an action film opposite Jason Statham entitled Parker shortly after. And of course, how could we forget the Kohl’s line she partnered with her estranged husband for? The list of projects J.Lo has her hand dipped in seems endless.

This Week in J.Lo News…

Lopez made this year’s Yahoo list of top searches and there’s no doubt in our minds that she will do it again next year, especially with her recent romance with Los Angeles-based dancer Casper Smart, who is 18 years her junior.

Make this another eventful year, J.Lo.
