Major Lazer at Lollapalooza: By the Numbers

A Major Lazer show is not for the faint of heart. For the most part, you've gotta be young, horny and your shorts cannot come anywhere close to your knee. If your mom is anywhere near the vicinity, you're going to want to ask her to leave... and run far, far away. Mostly, a live Major Lazer set is exactly like their "Butter's Theme" video but with more sweat and butt jiggling. Believe it!

We caught Major Lazer's 7pm set at Perry's stage Sunday night at Lollapalooza, and we got all the major stats down in case you missed it. In case you did miss it, it's probably best for your back—number of girls we saw cause possible permanent damage from twerking: at least 2. See more numbers below.

Number of times Major Lazer encouraged the crowd to twerk: Officially 1 (which was plenty)

How hot Diplo looked on a scale of 1 - 10: 10, obviously

How many ambulances showed up to their set, just in case: 2

How many boobs I saw: 3. Don't ask. Please.

How many Aaron Pauls (AKA Jesse Pinkmans) were in the audience: 1

How many hangovers there are going to be tomorrow because of Major Lazer: Approximately 5,000

What percentage of the crowd took their shirts off when Diplo asked: 65

How many objects were flying through the air at any given time during their set: I counted 6

Number of girls on stage showing off their asses during "Bubble Butt": 8? 9? I couldn't see through the tears streaming down my face.

How many air horns were harmed during the making of this Major Lazer set: At least 4. R.I.P.
