New York - "Back home in Budapest we have this saying," Hungarian model Kristof Somfai explained this morning, "from the outside a handsome youth may look like he's already shaving but on the inside he's still - how you say? - an unripened, er, fruit.
"Maybe peach, maybe prickly pear, I dunno; you make up your own mind!"
The comments, published in iconic celebwatch magazine Catwalk Strutz N Slutz.con, come as a furious 18 year-old Justin Bieber was plunged into has-he-or-hasn't-he-been-dumped-by-Selena Gomez controversy over a 'platonic date' with the lovely Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin.
Somfai, who has been dating stunning nineteen year-old sapphire-eyed Barbara since their time together at Budapest high school, insists rumors that she has a 'crush' on the Canadian entertainer 'is total bollocks'.
His girlfriend has been described as an absolute knockout with a string of high profile catwalk hits to her burgeoning portfolio including modeling for Prada at Milan Fashion Week as well as Chanel, to name just two.
But she is no heart-breaking cradle-snatcher, Somfai insists, just an unbelievably beautiful and sophisticated young woman who's interested only in him.
Somfai, whose own modelling career has rocketed since posing in faux fur-trimmed swimming shorts for the Winter 2012-13 edition of Alaskan Polar Bear Illustrated magazine, believes gorgeous Barbara 'has no need of Justin's attentions'.
"Why, only last week she told me she can all too easily see through shallow Western celebs," the young man added confidently, "and that includes Justin Bieber!"
