“Feel the power! You see the energy”
Great news for Justin Gaston — 20 year old underwear model and manfriend to 16 year old Miley Cyrus … all of his pandering to the Cyrus family has finally paid off — homeboy scored his FIRST magazine cover! Tho, this mag, Electric Youth!, is prolly not the sort of mag that the überreligious Cyrus family might readily approve of … especially considering … oh, just see for yourself:
Celebrity magazines have been reporting that Justin Gaston, Miley Cyrus’s 20-year-old model boyfriend, has moved into the Cyrus family home so that dad Billy Ray can “keep an eye on him.” But it seems the young fella has been slipping out of the compound. Away from the Disney-sanitized environment that attends a hit commodity like “Hannah Montana,” young Mr. Gaston is getting quite the reputation for racy photo spreads. First came a series in the Spring 2009 issue of V Man, an edgy men’s fashion magazine which posed him awkwardly straddling a tennis net and grabbing his crotch.

Now he is on the cover of the even more avant garde Electric Youth! magazine, a frankly homoerotic remix of the teen-mag Tiger Beat genre dedicated to up-and-coming male models. (Although the new issue does also feature a handful of young female models, including Dakota Johnson, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.) Electric Youth! (or EY!), named after the Debbie Gibson hit, is the brainchild of a Madrid-based creative director named Luis Venegas. Each model is interviewed in the style of a teen idol and the text, in contrast to the revealing photos, is positively restrained. Gaston is only referred to as Miley’s “best friend,” for example, and the aspiring musician is allowed a generous plug for his MySpace demo page. Dakota Johnson’s famous parents aren’t even mentioned. EY! does not have a web site and you won’t find the ad-free mag on news stands. Although it nominally has a US cover price of $18, in reality it is stocked by only a few trendy European boutiques or distributed privately among the fashion media. Which is probably just as well, since if he saw it Billy Ray might wonder why Justin’s red Speedo had to be quite so tight.
Actually, I understand that EY! is sold at American Apparel stores (which kinda makes sense) and it does have a website at ElectricYouthMag.com. Personally, I’m very intrigued to see what other photos of Justin Gaston might be hiding inside this particular issue of the magazine. Truth be told, the young man on the cover of this magazine does not strike me as the type of gent who would be interested in a romantic affiliation with someone like Miley Cyrus. I’m just sayin’. That being said, I can see how someone like the young Miss Cyrus might not even be aware how telling a photo like this of her manfriend Justin Gaston really is … in fact, I could see how she might giddily want to tack up a photo like this in her bedroom so she can moon over his beauty whenever she likes. HMMM. Yeah, I just really can’t see this Jiley thing being the real deal … but I sincerely doubt that anything will change between them. Their union has proved to be a boon for his modeling career. I wonder what magazine covers the lad will score next?
