Men’s Style wrote an article about Justin Gaston, called ‘The Trouble with Dating Miley Cyrus': Justin, unlike Miley, who was booking acting gigs at 10, has arrived in the world of celebrity with little time for preparation. After a modeling agent discovered him three years ago, the devout Christian from Pineville..
..Louisiana, spent three miserable months in New York before heading to LA to transform himself into the next John Mayer. His shaggy good looks landed him a spot on Nashville Star, on which he discovered an ally in host Billy Ray Cyrus, himself a churchgoer with former pro-ball aspirations, who summoned Justin..
..for frequent powwows in his tour bus. When Gaston was booted after three episodes, Cyrus’ on-air farewell was lavish: ‘This guy’s gonna be a big, big movie star. I’m calling it right now! Tom Cruise, look out!’
Ruby Cantu, a Nashville Star producer who lived with the contestants, said: ‘I kinda saw it coming just with the way Billy Ray was with him.’ Billy Ray ushered Gaston onto the Hannah Montana set. ‘It’s like if you had a 16-year-old daughter who said, ‘Oh, Daddy, he’s so cute, I want to meet him.’ That’s exactly what happened.’
Cantu says it’s real affection: ‘puppy love.. holding hands and being cute with each other.’ Courtney Hazlett, MSNBC’s pop-culture columnist, ‘It seems like a de facto advertisement’, of the YouTube video of Cyrus dancing and swooning while Gaston sings. Is Gaston a girl’s first love or part of a stage dad’s cynical ploy to help his multi-million-dollar daughter forge a post-Disney career?In contrast to Miley’s ex, Nick Jonas, Justin hasn’t spent his life
hermetically sealed in a Magic Kingdom turret; take, for instance, the
photo shoot Gaston did for the online underwear retailer International
Jock, the mention of which makes him cringe. He said, ‘It’s not something my mom
would be proud of.’
He scoffs at the rumor that he’s been living in the Cyrus home, ‘No! I live in an
apartment in North Hollywood with two guys!’ and seems at a loss when
asked basic questions about his girlfriend. He won’t identify the
person who repeatedly calls his iPhone during the interview. Finally he
hurries off to take the call behind closed doors.
The status of his music career? All he’ll disclose is
that he’s involved with people who are tinkering with his image. It’s a
surprising admission, perhaps, though somewhat less so when you
consider what he says he’d choose to be if he..
..weren’t Justin Gaston: ‘One of those little lapdogs that gets petted all day. You
know, they wake up, get fed, get attention. I like attention. I’d like
to be one of those little dogs. Is that weird?’ Full article here.
