Cyrus penned love song about McCartney

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.

However, 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!'"

However, 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."
