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.”
