Most celebs can pretty much agree that the paparazzi are total pests. (We feel ya Miley Cyrus!) Selena Gomez, however, may not be such a critic of the paps. Why? Well, one helped her with something every adult should know how to do -- pump gas.

The 'Come & Get It' songstress pulled her car up to the wrong side of the gas pump. (Life pro tip, Sel -- there are arrows on your gas gauge that point to the direction the tank is on.) But then, a kind photog was nice enough to get in Selena's brand new Beamer and turn that thang around for her.

The pap also told Sel that her maxi dress was stuck in the door. See, they are good for something, celebs!
