Miley Cyrus may be the bigger name in the relationship, but her model boyfriend Justin Gaston is hot on her heels. A source gives RadarOnline.com some exclusive details behind his racy spread for VMAN magazine.
"It took place in mid-December in Los Angeles and Justin was very personable and free of handlers." says the source. "He was clever, funny, had lots of energy and was up for anything!"
In the photos, Gaston- in a retro, red track suit- straddles a tennis net and playfully grabs his, well, bulging nether region. Shot by photographer Doug Inglish, Gaston was apparently a "real pleasure to shoot" and was simply "lovely" to work with.
As for the theme behind the edgy pictorial, the source says "Justin reminded us of 90's gorgeous Versace-type models so that is how we decided to treat the shoot with Doug's certain spontaneity and easiness."
In the interview, Gaston opens up about being Miley's man. "I look up to her," Gaston revealed. "It's nice to have someone there who already knows what's going on. It helps you plan your next steps."
In fact, Cyrus was at his side during his spin in the spotlight, even chiming in during the interview to add a quote from the Bible. The source adds: "The interview took place on New Year's Eve while Justin and Miley were in Nashville."
Read the whole interview in the magazine's Spring 2009 issue which hits stands later this week.
