Do you recognize the name Josey Greenwall? Well, if you’re a country music fan, you may remember a younger him being a Nashville music superstar. However, when Josey decided to make the tough decision to openly come out as gay, he was immediately dropped from his label. Despite the obstacle, Josey didn’t let that stop him and continued to move his career forward. He has since become a very successful model and has many acoustic covers on YouTube garnering him tons of views.
In the latest issue of DNA, Josey talks about life, love, his music and of course, his best friend, Rodiney Santiago who also joined in for part of Josey’s shoot for the mag shot by photographer Richard Gerst. The two frollick in the sand and show off their comradery quite nicely. When Richard asked Josey if he was excited to be on the cover, he said:
Absolutely! I don’t think there are enough words to describe how excited I am, really. I feel extremely honoured to be in such great company with all of the other cover models that have been on DNA’s cover. When I look back at all of your magazines and then see the one with me on the front, it really is a surreal moment that I’m still trying to take in. I think what I’m most excited about is that achieving something like this is the kind of milestone in someone’s career that they never forget.
Aside form the smokin’ hot photos in the mag’s latest issue, Josey and Rodiney teamed up for another YouTube music cover together. This time, the two tackled Britney Spears’ How I Roll. While I know that Josey has quite the voice, Rodiney has proven before that his isn’t the most golden. However, the two pull this song off quite nicely and I almost prefer it to the original. Check out the sexy photos from the mag and the acoustic cover below.
For this week’s selection for my “Model Behavior” series, I choose 6’1″ stud, Jeff Tomsik. He’s been the face for Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle and Polo. His discovery is a bit of a fairy tale one. Back in Ohio, Tomsik was a garbage man before he decided to stop by an open casting call. It was here where famed photographer, Bruce Weber, discovered him and quickly scored him a modeling gig for Hollister Co. His face was all over the company’s shopping bags for months. The rest they say is history.
With his blond boy-next-door good looks, he became a favorite for photographers to shoot. Including Bruce Weber, he’s worked with Jeremy Kost, Richard Gerst, Tony Duran, Gregory Vaughn and many more. Given his perfectly sculpted body, Tomsik has no hang-ups showing it off. In fact, if you do a quick google search, you can see if the carpets match the drapes. When asked what his favorite part of his body is, the 24-year-old says his eyes are it. I couldn’t agree more. I could get lost in those baby blues for hours.
