What Was With Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘Latino’ Accent On ‘The X Factor UK’?

We here at Talent Recap enjoyed this past weekend’s X Factor UK live shows. It was ‘Viva Latino’ week, which was a little weird for a UK show with no Latinos on it, but whatever. Music is universal but what I could have done without Nicole Scherzinger’s funky, stereotypical ‘Latino’ accent.

Look, I’m not an overly sensitive guy. I’m Latino and, sure I can take a joke. But this was a bridge too far for me. Nicole used a Spanglish, stereotypical accent like some LA lowrider. She was doing the accent that Cheech Marin used as a spoof of the way Latinos were portrayed in the media. Nicole is not Latina. She’s half-Filipino and half-Hawaiian. She also doesn’t speak that way normally, so why talk that way? Not only did she do it once but she did it the whole friggin’ show.

Nicole, we love you, but cut it out. Don’t do this again.
