Miley Cyrus has been accused of being a lot of things, but shy certainly isn't one of them. As of late, the notorious flirt has turned her affectionate attentions to Kings of Leon's bassist, Jared Followill! According to Hollywood Life, she's had designs on this 24-year-old dude ever since they first interfaced last year at the MTV Europe Music Awards, and has recently tried to catch his eye via "coy text messages." And guess what? The coy ploy seems to be working.
"So far, he is a big fan of what she has been sending. He thinks she's very pretty and is excited she's still flirting with him," a source told HL. "Jared loves showing off his texts from Miley."
Followill is the latest in a long stream of love interests for the teen queen—in recent months, she's been linked to everyone from So Undercover co-star Joshua Bowman to Nickelodeon hottie Avan Jogia. Yet this hookup seems like it could actually have potential. First of all, he's age-appropriate, unlike a certain other singer Miley was eyeing not too long ago. Secondly, they both hail from Nashville, so it could be a match made in cowgirl heaven. And he could give our Miley rock star cred as she moves from Disney diva to edgy musician. Definitely a pair to watch! Is Miley Cyrus Getting Frisky With John Mayer?
