Twitter informed E! News today that more than 900,000 tweets about the twerktastic pop star were posted over the past 24 hours.
Before that, her name was mentioned 12-times’ more than usual while the documentary Miley: The Movement was airing on MTV.
But even though it seems as if all this Miley talk is a newish, post-VMAs thing, that isn’t exactly the case according to USA Today‘s handy compilation of numerical Miley facts from various statisticians.
For starters: Her Best of Both Worlds Tour—featuring Miley and “Hannah Montana”—in 2007 and 2008 grossed $54 million. Folks, many of them youngsters, were definitely interested in what the then-15-year-old Disney star was up to.
The 2008 documentary Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert also benefited from that interest, grossing $65.3 million. The film remains perched at No. 9 on the all-time list of top-grossing U.S. documentaries, per IMDb. (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never landed at No. 6 in 2011 with $73 million, and 2004’s Fahrenheit 9/11 continues to cling to the No. 1 spot with $119 million.)
But that was then.
Also per the reported stats, Miley is said to have drummed up roughly $79 million worth of free publicity from her 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance, which was watched by an estimated 10 million people.
Before that had even happened, it took only 37 days for her “We Can’t Stop” video to rack up 100 million views on Vevo, a record for the site.
After the VMAs, it took “Wrecking Ball” 24 hours to amass a record 19 million Vevo views on its way to a record-shattering 100 million views in six days. (Breaking the record previosly set by “We Can’t Stop,” natch.)Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
