Shaun White is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine

Lindsey Vonn may have hogged the front of Sports Illustrated during the 2010 Winter Olympics, but Shaun White got a nice consolation prize: his second appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone.

The two-time gold medalist will be featured on the March 15 cover of the iconic rock and roll magazine. His pose, shirtless and squirting lighter fluid on an fiery snowboard, calls to mind Iggy Pop, Jimi Hendrix and R. Kelly. The pants, however, are all Evel Knievel.

The issue hit newsstands Wednesday and, for now, it's the only place to read RS's interview with White. In it, he discusses how music has helped his snowboarding, his hair and why he doesn't like to think about snowboarding when he doesn't have to. White also shares a story about teammate how Louis Vito blasted Miley Cyrus's song "Party in the U.S.A." in an attempt to disrupt his mental state.
