The “Baby" singer told a television host in Taiwan, “Selena is…ah…she is amazing. She makes me really happy." Selena had earlier said that she was lucky to have someone who understands her profession well. “I'm blushing! He's been in my life for so long and it's just nice to have someone that understands what you're going through," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
However, it was not a cakewalk for the lovebirds. Selena said that she was hurt by criticisms by Justin fans. "It's hard. It hurts, it really does. I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong. I've been best friends with him for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot but I try not to focus on it. I have a strong family and great fans," she said.
