Teen sensation MILEY CYRUS was left red-faced after meeting pop hunk JESSE McCARTNEY – because he was her first ever celebrity crush.
The Hannah Montana star became a huge fan of the singer when he was part of now defunct boyband Dream – and the star was the inspiration behind the first song the 15-year-old penned.
But Cyrus was left embarrassed after she was introduced to the McCartney shortly after moving to Hollywood, because he branded her lyrical tribute “cute”.
She says, “It was so embarrassing, when I first moved to Los Angeles, I had a crush on Jesse McCartney.
“In fact, the first song I ever wrote was about Jesse. He was on my show and I told him and he was like, ‘That’s so cute!'”
But Cyrus has now set her sights on a slightly more mature man.
She adds, “Orlando Bloom is gorgeous, but he’s a bit of a player.”
