The 20-year-old model, who hasn't gone public with his relationship status with the teen star, is already talking about the future in a new interview with the spring issue of VMAN Magazine.
"I look up to her," he told the mag. "It's nice to have someone there who already knows what's going on. It helps you plan your next steps."
In one photo from the VMAN shoot, he stands over a tennis net in a provocative position – but his relationship with Miley seems to be a far cry from his steamy modeling work. And while Miley has become a superstar to millions of tweens and teens, Justin hinted that she hasn't forgotten where she came from.
"In a girl, I want someone who's really genuine," he said. "Someone attractive, but more just really nice."
And according to Miley, Justin, who she met through dad Billy Ray after he competed on his reality show, "Nashville Star," plans on devoting more of his future time to making sweet music with his girlfriend.
"I just got a studio for my birthday," Miley told the mag. "And I got him a guitar for Christmas. My goal is to become one of the most-wanted producers of 2010, so we have a whole year to get really good."
