Miley Cyrus is finally talking openly about her relationship with boyfriend Justin Gaston.

During her visit to Access Hollywood last Friday, the 16-year-old “Hannah Montana The Movie” star said she is glad to have such a good man by her side.

“He’s so awesome and he’s cool and he’s a good person,” she said.

When asked by Access’ Nancy O’Dell about the teen’s recent admission she is in love, Miley clarified the reports a bit.

“I said something like that,” Miley noted. “I said that I love him as a person and he’s my best friend.”

Thoroughly enjoying her time with Justin, a 20-year-model and aspiring singer, Miley said she’s glad the young couple’s relationship is out in the open now.

“I’m guess I’m just tired of secrets and what not,” she said of recently confirming that the two are an item after months of rumors. “And you know, I don’t know how long him and I will last or what’s gonna happen in the future, but I just know that I’ve always got a really good friend. So that’s good.”
