Def Leppard's Joe Elliott is not a perv! Though with Taylor Swift, nobody would blame him



Taylor Swift and Joe Elliott
Def Leppard
's Joe Elliott is the special guest on this week's Stuck in the '80s podcast, and the absolute best part of the interview is Joe explaining that he's not a perv -- or at least he wasn't when he worked on stage with Taylor Swift.

"She was 18 or 19 ... and I was just 49 at the time," he insisted to us. Still, while singing Pour Some Sugar On Me, he said he couldn't bring himself to look her in the eyes when singing "I'm hot, sticky sweet, from my head to my feet." 

Elliott insists the band actually became like a "super dad" to Taylor, protecting her from all the other hedonistic rock stars around her. Sure, sure.
