G.E.M.’s accent can lead her to being mistaken for a foreign singer. Her unique accent is caused by the shrinkage of her left jawbone, therefore, the jawbone and the teeth do not fit together. When G.E.M. speaks, the shrinkage causes air to leak out, so it will sound different. There are surgery operations to correct this problem, doctors’ advice not to undergo the surgery unless you are at least 21 when your body stops growing. However, G.E.M. has already announced that she has temporarily opted against the surgery due to the risk of the surgery which has risen in recent years, as well as the problem has not deteriorated.
