    Default Gwyneth caught Madonna-itis

    Anyone watching the Golden Globes? Wanna tell me why our preggers Gwynie sounds British. Not all the time either. She goes in and out with the Brit accent. What has Madonna done to us???
    Insert witty line here

    Speaking from experience, if you're married to a british person, and esp. if you spend a lot of time in England - and esp. esp. if you are an actress, it is almost impossible not to pick up some of the inflection and the slang.. embarrassing, but true.

    I tend to pick up accents easily myself. I don't do it on purpose.

    If she went to a shop in the UK and spoke normally, with her
    American accent and inflections, she'd probably be misunderstood
    by the locals, so she's no doubt picked up some of their pronunciation
    just as a matter of course.

    I lived in the south for a while when I was younger, and within a year I had a twang. And I didn't even know it. So I can understand how that can happen.

    But she has the other kind of Madonna-itis...the one that makes you think everything you say and do is of great importance and your sense of self-worth is so overinflated that you're in danger of exploding.

    I noticed it too. But I'm totally guilty of doing the same thing - I dated a guy from Wisconsin and I developed a Midwestern accent big time!

    I noticed it and it bothered me but only because I can't stand her to begin with. And WTF? Didn't anyone teach her not to lean on tables with her elbows? She looked like she should be pulling up a chair at a hot dog stand rather than being at an award show.

    And what an awful dress....

    Oh man when she was on stage last night, I had to mute my TV. Her accent irritates the shit out of me.
