Celebrities are always talking about how much they dislike the paparazzi and how annoying they are. But when Selena Gomez pulled into a gas station in her brand-new BMW X5 SUV recently, she found out just how helpful the paps can be.

Apparently, the singer/actress had absolutely no idea how to put gas into her X5, because she just purchased it within the last couple of weeks. So after struggling to figure out how to put gas into it, she called over a paparazzo who was standing nearby snapping photos of her and asked him for assistance. And he got in, turned the car around, and helped her get a full tank.

What a gent. Celebs should think about this moment the next time they decide to scream on a photographer for following them everywhere. You never know when one of those photogs might come in handy.
