I BLAME MADONNA.
I think it’s fair to assume Madonna is the root of this problem.
I can think of a handful of stupid famous adults (Madge being the first) who’ve paved the way for FAKE BRITISH ACCENTS.
Someone please explain to me- WHY????
Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears and Mariah Carey are only among the few that frequently speak in British accents knowing full well they grew up in Detroit and Mississippi!
Not only is it tacky and annoying for those of us who have to listen to it, it’s also setting a trend among today’s young stars!
Here’s a recent video of Willow Smith performing her new song “Summer Fling” on Queen Latifah’s new show “The Queen Latifah Show“. She starts speaking around the 40: second mark and it’s a little hard to understand. Minus the fact that it’s stupid, this girl is talented as hell!
Smith was born in L.A, California, daughter of Will and Jada (neither of which are from any part of the U.K).
So have you figured out why she spoke in a British accent?
