But it’s not with Cody Linley, her Hannah Montana co-star, as she had been spotted with just recently on what seemed like a date. And while I’ve never heard of him before, Justin Gatson certainly looks a little more mature and more – ahem, experience than Linley. From the Gossip Girls,
“Enjoying the company of Nashville Star hunk Justin Gatson, Miley Cyrus had an action-packed Saturday (September 13), as she was surrounded by family and friends during a Pasadena outing.
The 15-year-old “Hannah Montana” singer/actress was spotted playfully poking and laughing with her chiseled young male companion, with the duo, along with Miley’s family, going to church together before grabbing lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.”
Now all of this sounds pretty innocent but I definitely think that this is one girl who needs to be watched. By her parents, preferrably. It’s sad that I have to remind myself every time that I look at her that this girl is 15 years old. She seems so much older than that and I think other people see that too so when they hear these stories about her, they seem quick to exuse it. But innocent stuff like two kids in tanks tops poking each other and laughing and flirting, while fun and sweet, can quickly turn in a bad direction and Miley just seems like the type of girl who’s particularly vulnerable to it. As a side note, I never realized until I saw this picture how identical she looks to Shannen Doherty.
