"I would say that my mother is the single biggest role model in my life, but that term doesn't seem to encompass enough when I use it about her," she says.

"I think weed is the best drug on earth," Cyrus, 20, tells Rolling Stone. "One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon. Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs – social drugs."

The magazine cover gal, whose engagement to Liam Hemsworth ended earlier this month, doesn't stop there.

The meltdown forced Armstrong to enter an outpatient rehab program for a month and in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the frontman, who turned 41 this month, reveals his struggle to get sober.

"I'm a blackout drinker," he reveals. "That's basically what happened [that night]."

"How did I kidnap him?" Swift, 22, exclaims to Rolling Stone when told about the rumor du jour. "You can't kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now!"

Laughing, she adds: "It's an interesting way to spin something into a story. ... See, this is why I don't read stuff."

Taylor Swift has never confirmed whether her song "Dear John" is about John Mayer, but the musician certainly thinks it is – and he's not a fan.

"It made me feel terrible," Mayer, 34, tells Rolling Stone in its latest issue.

"Because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."
