It seems like it would be *really* hard to keep that up without practice and having that accent around you (like Madonna did)

I didn't hear her use any brit terms. I tried really hard to ignore the accent and think if she sounded like a Houstonian under it (speech pattern, words, etc) and to me it did sound like she was speaking normally on that end. Its just her articulation is off.

I don't understand what all the fuss is about. The lady obviously lived a previous life in England, Australia, or wherever.

Looks like all EU immigrants should come to that clinic and get British accent.
They can say, I was born here with that accent.
