What does this 20 year old underwear model
have in common with just sweet 16 Miley Cyrus?
He's her boyfriend!
Not only that, he lives with her and her family. I just don't get it. What does a 20 year old man see in a 16 year old girl? I'm not ultra conservative, as a matter of fact I'm pretty open minded. I don't have a daughter but I can tell you this...
if I did she would not be with a boy 4 years older than her at this stage in her life. I feel once you hit a certain age, the age of your significant other doesn't matter too much. Twenty four year old guy + 20 year old girl, no problem. But this situation bothers me. Not to mention she's underage. Where are these parents heads? The following is an excerpt of an interview with Miley in Glamour magazine.

On the four-year age difference between her and boyfriend Justin Gaston:
"I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong, and I'm ready for people to accept it. My fans already accept it -- they just want me to be happy. And I haven't been that happy in a few years ... working so hard, moving to L.A. from Nashville, going through a bad breakup [with
Nick Jonas]. I'm finally happy again, and I think that is reflected in my music and my work. So honestly, I don't feel like there's anything to hide. And I love him so much I don't really care."
This girl is sixteen for heavens sake. She sounds like she's 30. Maybe that's what he sees in her, she seems older. Or maybe it's because she's a gold mine.

I suspect that she is a bit older than her years, in some respects. However, I'm with you: Living in the same house? Um ... bad idea.

I had a friend in high school. His sister was sixteen. Their mother was VERY liberal. She allowed the girl and her eighteen year old boyfriend to sleep together in the mother's bed when she was working night shifts. WTF? I was appalled at this even when I was seventeen.

I wondered what the mom was thinking. I talked with my friend about it. He said that it boiled down to the mom working three jobs and realizing that her kids were going to do what they wanted any way. She allowed it to happen under 'safer' circumstances. She made sure the girl was on birth control. Also, she bought beer for the older boys (17 & 18) under the condition that they, AND THEIR FRIENDS, only drink in the house and agree not to drive. Wrong and weird, but I thought THAT was cool at the time.

In any event, Miley's life is royally f-ed up. She's destined to be her generation's Britney Spears.

What do they have in common ... hormones! I'm open minded but I agree ... living in the same house -- not a good idea.
