Speaking in a preview of a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, the teen pop idol discussed his relationship - and pledged that he was determined to treat Selena right.
The Mirror quoted him as saying: "Sometimes we gotta take the back exits, but I never make her separate from me. I don't want her to feel like I'm ashamed of her.
"A lot of guys do that - especially in the business - they don't want to be seen with the girl, so they make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff.
"When we getaway, we're getting away together at least."
The famous pair had been rumoured to have split, amid reports that Biebs had been involved with a Victoria's Secret model.
