Taylor Swift, meet your next rock star beau: Steven Tyler! The Aerosmith frontman told Us Weekly on March 10 at the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood that he thought the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer was "hot."
Responding to a fun question about who he'd intern for, the 64-year-old rock legend said, "She's blonde with all the hits. Taylor Swift. She's hot."
"More than that, she's beyond talented," he continued of the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, 23. "I have to write a song with her."
The former American Idol judge also talked about missing working on the FOX show. "I always wanted to see what the other mountains looked like…. TV is a whole other animal, and it was good. I miss J.Lo a lot and Randy [Jackson] on and off." Three celebrity judges have since replaced Tyler and Jennifer Lopez: Keith Urban and dueling divas Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
Tyler served as a judge on the show for Seasons 10 and 11 but decided to leave to return to his first love — music. "It feels good to be back with my band again. It feels really good," he told Us.
