Mark Daniel Ronson is an English musician, music producer, artist, DJ and co-founder of Allido Records. He currently works with his own band, Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.

Mark Ronson had to change his accent to fit in at school. The London-born producer admits he had to soften his English tones to avoid being bullied when he moved to the U.S. as a youngster.

"It's sort of a mockumentary, Woody Allen plays the lead and he changes his appearance depending on what group of people he's with," he explained about one of his favorite movies, "Zelig". "I moved to New York when I was a kid, and I remember having to change my accent to stop me from getting beaten up by other kids, so I've always had a lot of sympathy with Woody's character."

I know exactly what he means about changing your appearance based off of what group you are with. I used to do that a lot when I was younger and when one group of friends would find out I was friends with another group they would always be so shocked and asked how I could ever be their friend. I never knew but I think I wanted friends so badly that I was willing to be anything that they wanted me to be so they would accept me.
