It’s obviously nothing new for pop stars to speak with fake-o British accents. Madonna’s been doing it for years, and it’s surely just a matter of time before Lady Gaga starts talking like Camilla Parker-Bowles. But how many singing sensations pattern their anglophilic affectation after British cartoon babies!? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I count just one: Miss Britney Spears herself!
The 28-year-old singer has become obsessed with animated US TV show ‘Family Guy’ and has reportedly been wandering around Los Angeles’ Mondrian Hotel mimicking the voice of troublesome baby Stewie, whose English accent is voiced by show creator Seth MacFarlane.
A source said: “Britney has developed a real fascination for ‘Family Guy’. She’s been staying in the hotel’s penthouse suite and has been watching box sets.”
Britney has been addressing hotel staff in the voice much to their amusement.
The source to The Sun newspaper: “She really likes Stewie and has been trying to copy his British accent. It’s a bit weird, especially when she’s in the gym speaking like a camp Brit.”
This is not the first time Britney has spoken in a British accent.
