Jesse McCartney’s new CD, Departure, which comes out on May 20, is filled with romantic tunes, but he’s a very single guy right now. The 20-year-old has joined the Jewish dating site jdate.com — even though he isn’t Jewish! “One of my best buddies is a conservative Jew and his sister had met her boyfriend on JDate,” he explains. “I actually hadn’t heard of it before. He was like, ‘You should try JDate.’ There are a lot of different people of all religious backgrounds on that site. My screen name is jbagel07 and a lot of people see the pictures of me and say, ‘Who are you? Why are you pretending to be Jesse McCartney?’ And I say, ‘It’s me — I just decided to meet somebody online.’ And they’re still like, ‘Why are you doing it?’ I have to admit I have a pretty cheesy profile — I just had fun with it.” Jesse is still nursing a broken heart over his split with David Cassidy’s daughter, Katie.
