London: American singer Kelly Rowland is worried that she will acquire a British accent like Madonna if she stays here for too long.

The 30-year-old is currently in the country as a judge on the British reality show "The X Factor".

"If I went back to the States and I took some these accent moments with me, my friends would cut me down," quoted Rowland as saying.

"They`d be like, `Oh, Madonna, really?!` Like they would go in on me and I love Madonna, but yeah. I would need to be over here for years in order to get a British accent, not a couple of months," she added.
