It is very tempting to speak in an English accent, especially when you are among Brits.

And Britney Spears can't seem to get enough of imitating our friends (or shall we say, mates) across the pond.

The 31-year-old songstress, who is in the United Kingdom for a press tour to promote her upcoming album Britney Jean, had a little bit of fun with BBC Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

When asked by Grimshaw if she ever thought she would "be the type of person that would release number 8," the pop superstar could not resist the urge to speak just like the radio host in his native accent.

"No I never did, I never thought that," the "Work Bitch" singer quipped in her best British accent, combined with her Louisiana drawl.

It isn't easy to pull it off, so A for effort Brit, for trying to be a Brit!

Returning back to her regular voice, she then added that she will take some time out of the spotlight after she releases Britney Jean, which drops on Dec. 3.

"Oh, I'll take a break after this one, for a while," Spears said.

Spears dished that her latest project is different from any other album she has released.

"It's very moody and electric and different, so it's pretty cool," she said.

Sound like Brit had a great time during her radio appearance, tweeting afterwards "Grimmy, dahling!! Kisses to @R1Breakfast for a fun morning @bbcradio1 @grimmers."

Cheers mate!
