Does Nicki Minaj’s English accent sound familiar to you? Well it might be because the rapper models her spot-on accent after a certain Spice Girl.
The Starships singer – whose alter-ego Roman Zolanski speaks/raps in a British accent on her records – taught herself to speak with an accent by copying her Spice Girls idol’s accent when she was a child.
Nicki confessed: “There are so many [I copied], but one person was Scary Spice. I used to listen to her all the time and try to make the same faces she’d make when she was talking. Oh, and Hermione from ‘Harry Potter’!”Tweet
