Country star Taylor Swift has been known to date men her senior, but not senior citizens. Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler showed an interest in the hitmaker, in more ways than one. The famous ladies man split with fiancé Erin Brady in January.

Us Weekly asked Tyler who he'd like to intern for (an odd question to be sure), and he said Swift. "She's the blonde with all the hits … She's hot." He's 64, she's 23. Taylor … Tyler. Tyler … Taylor. Somehow we're reminded of Dave Letterman's "Uma … Oprah' gag from the 1995 Oscars.

His interest may be more than personal. "She's beyond talented," Tyler says. "I have to write a song with her." Fellow country blond Carrie Underwood appeared on Aerosmith's last album 'Music From Another Dimension!' So did 'American Idol' contestant Lauren Alaina. So the rock legend's interest in country musicians in not without precedent.

Swift's team has not responded to the blunt-force compliment. Her father may have just started to polish his shotgun.
