Selena Gomez added a British accent for her latest film, Monte Carlo. Now Selena claims that Victoria Beckham was her inspiration! Despite hours of vocal coaching, it was thinking about, and replicating Posh Spice’s voice that seems to have done the trick.
How Selena Gomez had time to work on a British accent is a bit mind-boggling. Between her TV show, The Wizards of Waverly Place, a new album, and dating Justin Bieber (all three of which are fulltime jobs), it looks like she did put in the work with a coach.
In a recent interview, Selena Gomez opened up about her training:
We wanted (the accent) to be almost very Victoria Beckham, kind of very posh and sophisticated. I had a coach for two weeks before the film, so I worked with her very closely and then we had her on set with me guiding me.
In a strange co-incidence, it is rumored that Victoria Beckham named her new baby girl, Harper, after a character on Selena’s Disney TV show.
