Amy Winehouse's accent
What kind of accent does she have? It's definitely a London accent but which type? She is often referred to as "Cockney" but I don't think she has a Cockney accent. She's from Camden.
I'm talking about her speech not her singing voice, which sounds American.
Amy's accent is totally fake. She's a Jewish princess trying desperately to be 'street'. Bad tattoos, fake accent - SO embarrassing.
Maybe she should be sent to rehab...
rachel savage-there are jews from london you know? is it possible that her accent is real and not all jewish people have heavy new york accents or speak hebrew.
Hope this helps:
Taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amy_Winehouse
"Winehouse was born in Southgate, London to a Jewish family with a history of jazz musicians. Her father, Mitchell Winehouse, is a taxi driver, and her mother is a pharmacist. She grew up in the suburb of Southgate, North London, and attended Ashmole School."
I can picture it now. Mitchell Winehouse, in his cab, saying "Your never guess 'o I 'ad in the back ov 'ere last night.."
I can picture Mitchell now.....not in his cab but almost 40 years ago things were alot different then.....remember me Mitch ??????
