Well his name is Justin Gaston and if you did know his name, then he’s accomplished exactly what he wanted by dating Miley Cyrus - fame. It’s not hard to see that Justin is using Miley for the spotlight that seems to constantly follow her but Miley is just a stupid kid so I actually don’t blame her for being blinded by love. I do however, mind the fact that once again, this girl’s parents are not stepping in. In fact, they are actually encouraging the behavior! From Celebitchy,
“Miley Cyrus’ underwear model boyfriend, Justin Gaston may just be using her for her fame, a source has claimed. The 16-year-old Disney star met her hunky 20-year-old boyfriend in Nashville earlier this year after Justin appeared on country music talent show hosted by Miley’s dad Billy Ray Cyrus. Since then the pair have been spotted hanging out (in a completely non-physical and totally innocent kind of way) on numerous occasions. But the question on everyone’s lips is: is it a genuine relationship? A source close to Justin revealed:
“He’s got more modeling jobs since he’s been with Miley and is telling people they’re writing songs together so her fans will get interested in his music. You start to think he’s in this for fame.”
But apparently, says the source, it’s not a one way thing: “After her photo leaks, she needed someone discreet and Billy Ray thought this was perfect for her image. They talk up how he is a good Christian like her and he won’t overshadow her like someone like Nick Jonas might.”
This is just so extremely wrong. How can Billy Ray even think that pairing her with a 20-year-old guy that it would be good for her image? How about having her date boys her own age? If he’s actually more worried about someone overshadowing little Miley’s career than he is about her happiness, I’m sure there are plenty of 16 or 17 year olds that aren’t even famous that she could easily score a date with. I also wonder where Miley’s mother is. We all come down so hard on Billy Ray for not being more protective of his daughter but there’s another parent here who is just as uninvolved as Mr. Achy Breaky.
