London: Singer-actress Selena Gomez and popstar Justin Bieber made their relationship official when they kissed at a public function.

The young stars couldn`t have found a more public place to express their love than at a press conference in Indonesia where Bieber is performing. The two have been quietly dating for months, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Selena said they made a decision to go public with their romance because she doesn`t like hiding things.

"I don`t like hiding. I do like to keep certain things to myself, but at the end of the day, I`m eighteen, and I`m going to fall in love," Gomez told Seventeen magazine.

`I`m going to hang out with people, and I`m going to explore myself, and I`m okay with that," she added.
