18,000. THAT IS the approximate number of Beyonce fans online around the world who type search queries about the music star's real eye color into their Google browsers each year. As a result of her mixed ancestry — African-American, European and Native American — some fans assume that her natural eye color may be green, like Rihanna's or Tyra Banks.

There are also approximately 100 online queries a month from fans who Google the question, “Does Beyonce wear contact lenses?”, believing her eye color to be artificially induced. In fact, the singer and wife of rapper Jay-Z's natural eye color is brown, in line with the majority of people with African ancestry.

But Beyonce is not alone in being the focus of online eye color curiosity. Fellow actress and music celebrity Vanessa Williams draws 1,000 queries a month about her blue eyes, while Rihanna attracts 4,000 searches relating to her green eyes. Top of the list is Bollywood celebrity Aishwarya Rai with 6,000 queries per month, making hers the most Googled eyes in the world.
