Steven Tyler Says Taylor Swift Is 'Hot'

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler apparently is infatuated with Taylor Swift. When asked who he'd like to intern for him, Tyler replied emphatically that the 23-year-old country singer was his first choice.

"She's the blonde with all the hits . . . She's hot," Tyler told US Weekly on March 10 at the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood. "She's beyond talented," Tyler continued. "I have to write a song with her."

Aerosmith worked with Swift's fellow country singing blond Carrie Underwood on their last album, Music From Another Dimension!.

The "We're Never Getting Back Together" singer has not responded to Tyler's compliment.

Tyler was also asked about no longer being a judge on American Idol, and he responded that he missed it. "TV is a whole other animal, and it was good. I miss J. Lo a lot and Randy [Jackson] on and off."
