Miranda Cosgrove wrote her song "Kissin' U" with a certain boy in mind – but she won't reveal her muse.
Asked if that special someone is fellow Nickelodeon star Nat Wolff, whom she's been linked with, Cosgrove, 17, laughs, "Um, next question."
But she confesses, "I go on dates all the time and I have guys that I really like, but I don't have a definite boyfriend."
Cosgrove has plenty of other things to dish about: She's performing songs from her new album Sparks Fly in her first mini-concert (no lip synching!) this Thursday in Plano, Texas, for the 8-year-old winner of the Quaker Chewy Afterschool Rocks Sweepstakes.

"I was a little nervous coming in," Cosgrove told PEOPLE of her party at Siren Studios, whose A-list tween guests included Suite Life on Deck stars Dylan and Cole Sprouse, True Jackson's Keke Palmer, and her costars Nathan Kress and Jeanette McCurdy.
In the end, she had nothing to worry about. "It's just so much fun," she said. "I couldn't be any happier."
