What kind of accent does Gaga speak with?

I've always wondered this. Gaga seems to speak in a very unique nasally way that deviates from the standard American way of speaking. At times, she even sounds like she's speaking in a posh British accent, especially around 2008-2009, and 2010 (Jonathan Ross Interview). Am I the only one who thinks this? 

 

And what kind of accent does Gaga speak with? I'm so curious to know...

She does it alot on stage, like when she's talking to the crowd between songs. She has a way of prounonouncing her T's that makes her sound posh. 

I also noticed it alot here. Check out 1:48...

Lmao at the awkward last few seconds at the end of the video.

Everyone speaks with an accent. "Standard American" is still an accent.

True. I should revise the thread title. I'm dying to know what kind of accent though. It almost sounds British to my ears but she doesn't have any connections to Britain. Her accent has an Old Hollywood star quality to it imo. It changes so much and messes with me lol

early tf days she sounded like a california valley girl (and still does on a lot of occasions). Then she has the faux british accent that came and went during tfm, btw, and ap :toofunny:. Now it's just kind of a "standard american" accent if you will.

I remember she said once in an interview that she used to speak in an accent once because she used to get really nervous the media was trying to sabotage her. Not sure which one it was. If you watch her super early Gagavisions she never talked like that until Poker Face blew up. I don't think it's posh. It sounds more like a baby voice to me.

She over enunciates compared to the Standard American speaker because she is from New York, elitely educated and a trained performer. Like Glamourpuss said, she's very serious about her Ts. Her dialect shift is both because she dropped the pretense of early career and, I think, because she lives in California. 

A linguist just published a long post about her dialect  in her music but not a lot about her speaking voice

It sounds like a mix of Starbucks and New York accents.
