The popularity of a YouTube video featuring Miley Cyrus and her BFF Mandy Jiroux poking fun at fellow teen queens Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato has prompted the “Hannah Montana” star to apologize. Well, sort of.

“I mean if we offended (Selena and Demi), we’re super sorry, but we were, like, just having fun,” Miley said in an interview with Popstar! magazine.

Miley and Mandy’s video copied an earlier YouTube offering from Selena and Demi. In the scene-by-scene send up, the pair put a “Mean Girls”-worthy effort into aping the actions of the other Disney stars, but according to Miley, it was all about the humor.

“That’s our thing, to be funny,” she said. “They were being funny on their show, and (besides) Elvis says imitation is the greatest form of flattery, so we were, like, imitating them. You know, like, being funny.”

“I was not prepared to be married, no matter who it was, when I was 20 or 30,” Mark said. “Committing to making it work and all the other things that go into building a solid foundation is where I'm at now.”

“The Happening” star believes the years he and Rhea already devoted to each other, as partners and parents, will help ensure a happy marriage.

“We continue to grow in our relationship, and we have a much better chance of succeeding and staying together now,” Mark told the magazine.

Twin-billing for Romijn and O'Connell
Actress Rebecca Romijn and actor Jerry O'Connell are not to be outdone by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Us Weekly is reporting that Romijn, 35, and O'Connell, 34, are expecting twins this winter. A spokesman for the couple confirmed the news Monday morning.

The babies will be the first children for the pair.

Dish on the fly
Fans unsure of what to wear with their Jessica Simpson-brand shoes, sunglasses, handbags and hair extensions can finally rest easy. The pop-turned-country singer is set to shill her own line of dresses, reports Women’s Wear Daily. The collection is expected to hit stores next spring. … Drew Barrymore’s ex, Justin Long, is reportedly so upset about his breakup with the “Charlie’s Angels” star that he walked away from a role in her upcoming film “Whip It!” “He couldn't stand working with her and not being with her,” a source told E! Online. The insider also revealed the backstory on the split, saying, “She dumped him. She was hot and cold. One minute she was in love with him and the next she wanted to break up with him.” … It looks like Lindsay Lohan’s gal pal Samantha Ronson was just being nice when she said she loved the new single from LiLo’s little sister. According to Page Six, despite offering Ali some kind words about “All the Way Around,” DJ Sam passed up an opportunity to play the track while working at the Angel Orensaz Foundation last week. “(Mama Lohan) Dina showed up with a copy of the song for Sam to play — but she refused,” a source revealed. “The song is really bad.”
