Black Comedian Comments On Aisleyne's Lingo

Junior Simpson appeared on Thursday night's BBLB show to comment on the way Aisleyne talks, a subject that has provoked lots of discussion amongst BB fans.

Referring to her regular use of phrases like 'You get me?', the black comedian said, "I come from a predominantly black family... and I have yet to hear the adults in that family talk like that".

Dermot then showed a VT of Ash talking about being a Ghetto Princess, mentioning her 'brethren' and her 'yard', talking in a pseudo-Jamaican twang, saying, 'You'd better know yourself' and using one of BB5 contestant Victor Ebuwa's favourite phrases, 'Shizzle my nizzle!'

In the words of Nikki, where does she get that lingo from?

"It's not even black-speak, I think it's more urban speak," opined Junior, adding that it doesn't matter whether you're black, white or Indian, it's just a kind-of street talk.

Mocking the promo girl's ridiculous banter, he then said, "If you're 14, standing outside a shopping mall... wonderful. If your 27... learn something!"

During the light-hearted interview, Junior, who is well-respected on the black comedy circuit, told Dermot that the word 'brethren' was a reggae term, but hadn't really been used since the late 1980's.

Another VT was then shown where Aisleyne re-iterated her claims that she's a Ghetto Princess, stating that she had to live on frozen peas, dry spaghetti and bourbon biscuits at one point.

But in a humorous rant the enthusastic comedian said about Ash's home town, "There's no ghetto in Regents Park.... they don't even a kebab shop!"

Aisleyne actually demonstrated how ridiculous her lingo was when she tried to abstain from using it, and instead put the correct words in-place of her urban patter.

Instead of saying 'innit' at the end of a sentence, she added 'isn't it', the literal replacement for the words in English.

However, she had clearly become confused by the concept of speaking properly, as the phrase 'innit' usually means (in context), 'Do you know what I mean?' or 'I know what you mean'.

Word up! Boo-ya-kasha! You get me?

What...? WHAT? That's how everyone speaks, innit?
