A Breakdown of Miley Cyrus' Rolling Stone Profile by the Numbers

On Tuesday, Rolling Stone published its first Miley Cyrus cover story online.

Over the course of its four pages, Toluca Lake's most fearsome little young person has the name of the magazine tattooed on her "dirty feet," jumps out of an airplane with a reporter in tow, dances on a banquette at a club where a little person dressed as an Oompa Loompa is lowered from the ceiling on a harness to deliver liquor, and poses for paparazzi pictures in front of a dumpster. It’s a lot to take in. So we’ve broken it down by number.

12

Number of tattoos explicitly identified in the profile

  • 9 on Cyrus' hands, arms, ribcage, and ear
  • 2 more she receives during her interview (“ROLLING” on her right foot; “$TONE” on her left foot)
  • 1 of fictional teenager Hannah Montana’s initials, located on the shoulder of Stephen Baldwin

"Did you know Alec Baldwin has Hannah Montana's initials tattooed on him? No, wait – Stephen Baldwin. He said he was my biggest fan, and I told him my biggest fans have tattoos. So he got hm tattooed on his shoulder." She shakes her head. "People do fucked-up shit."

  • 1 from Pharrell

"This is why I love Pharrell so much," she says, then reads a text that he sent her out loud. It's at least 1,000 characters long; she scrolls forever.

  • 1 from Lil Kim

She checks her phone and reads a text from Lil' Kim out loud: "My little pumpkin, I just had to tell you you're so fucking smart. I love you and all the press you are getting. Sad I didn't run into you at the VMAs. Keep killing it, boo." Miley laughs.

"This is actually the house! [...] And these are the homies!"

Days per annum Steve Carrell regrets his choice of neighborhood

"He always gives me the stank-eye because I drive so fast," Miley says. "The other day I was trying to reverse and I almost hit a thousand things, and I was getting nervous because I could see him going" – she crosses her arms and lets out a big, annoyed sigh. "I'm like, oh, my God, Dan in Real Life is watching me right now!"

Maximum number of months in prison one could face if convicted of trespassing on private property, under California law

One time she went out to her backyard and saw a shadowy figure in the bushes. "I thought I was gonna get murdered," she says, "and then I see my dad climbing my fence. He's like, 'Sissy! I found a secret path where I can get from my house to your house without having to go on the street!' I'm like, 'Dad, you definitely just trespassed through someone's yard.'"
