Michael Phelps is so 2008: After winning big in Vancouver, Olympic skateboarder Shaun White's popularity continues to grow, as 23-year-old is the cover boy of Rolling Stone for the second time, and has the preview for you.

“Getting into music has changed my personality and my way of doing things,” he told the magazine. “I’m far more open now.”

He said he thinks playing guitar is "the best thing in the world" because it's "the only thing where no matter what I do, I can’t do it all myself.”

As for the skill that brought him to the dance -- snowboarding -- you won’t catch the sexy Colorado native playing armchair quarterback anytime soon.


“I’d rather do it, not watch it,” he told the magazine, which hits newsstands Friday.
