“That’s just how I talk,” he explains. “A Mexican accent isn’t necessary either, but if you have one, you’ll look fake and stupid trying to hide it. And there’s nothing more embarrassing than someone who doesn’t use profanity, trying to jam it into their set like that will help them. Just as awkward.”
I like the accent/cursing comparison. Either way is ok as long as it's legit and you don't come off sounding like a phony. When a British person sounds British, it's fine. When Madonna sounds British, it's like, "Wait a minute, aren't you from Michigan?"
