Google ‘Dying Grandparent’ On Google Images And You Get… Christina Aguilera?!

Google

Christina Aguilera has fallen victim to an exceptionally strange search engine quirk: If you Google ‘dying grandparent’ in Google Images, it’s predominantly images of her, and she’s neither a grandparent nor dying.

So what’s going on?

It’s a result of a gossip item published in June about her family troubles. Aguilera was widely considered to be snubbing her… you guessed it… dying grandparents.

As a result, every website that ran the article, and there were a lot of them, used the phrase “dying grandparent” in the article, and often tagged to the accompanying image. Google Images just pulls the image with “dying grandparent” in them… and thus lots and lots of Aguilera photos.

Good job twisting the knife, Google.
