Selena Gomez: Justin Bieber is 'my thunder'

Friday May 27, 2011

They recently went public with their relationship after months spent denying any romantic involvement.

But actress Selena Gomez and pop sensation Justin Bieber already seem comfortable discussing their love.

When asked if he was "the thunder to her lightning" - a reference to the lyrics of her single Naturally  - the Disney star replied: "Yeah, I think so."

The 18-year-old revealed she believes the perfect relationship is based on "compassion, honesty and having fun".

"And I'd like to think that's what I've got," she added 

But with Justin, 17, on a world tour, she admits long-distance romances are no easy feat.

"There's no point getting on the phone and being like "I haven't heard from you, why didn’t you call me?" and bickering about it," she said.

"You need to be able to support each other from a distance but also give each other space and continue to live your life."

The young lovebirds were spotted on the beach in Maui earlier this week, puting on a very public display of affection.

And they attended the Billboard Music Awards where Justin, who picked up six awards, looked dapper in a gold jacket.
