London: Singer Selena Gomez says it`s great having Justin Bieber as a boyfriend because they can support each other through the trials and tribulations of fame.

The `Monte Carlo` star has been dating the 17-year-old singer since March and says it`s great to be able to share her problems with someone who knows what she is going through, reported OK magazine.

"I have friends who are in the business, and I have friends who are not in the business. It`s good to have people who understand what you are going through, which applies to him. But it`s also nice to have someone to talk to about real life, so it`s good to have a balance of both . It`s just nice to have someone who understands," said the 19-year-old `Lovesong` singer.

Gomez also said that one of the best things about her relationship with Bieber is that they spend so much of their time together laughing.

"We laugh so hard. It`s like when you laugh so hard your stomach hurts," she added.
