Washington: Selena Gomez has claimed that having Justin Bieber as her boyfriend is great because they can support each other through the trials and tribulations of fame.

Gomez, 19, admitted that one of the great things about dating the ‘Baby’ hitmaker is that he can identify himself with her career issues.

Gomez has been dating Bieber since March, and she revealed that it was great to be able to share her problems with someone who knows what she is going through.

“I have friends who are in the business, and I have friends who are not in the business,” Contactmusic quoted the ‘Monte Carlo’ as telling OK! magazine.

“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,” she added.
