Sorry if this is topic was already made. Be free to tell me if there's one like this. :D

Anyways, here in the US, I like to listen to bands like Arashi, NEWS, Kat-tun, etc. But they are in Japan.

Do people in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, China, etc like to listen to people from here? Such as the Jonas Brothers, Beyonce, Kanye West?

I want lots of replies!

Im pretty sure they do, but im from america, so im not 100% sure. cuz i went to this mall in taiwan when i was on vacation and this guy was listening to Jesse McCartney on his ipod........
but i was kinda laughing at him cuz he was singing to the song She's No You, and he didnt sound that great. but barely anyone listens to Jesse McCartney though. they usually know really famous people, or they listen to people who they think are famous, but really arent.

I go to countries in Asia every summer, and I always hear American music playing.

Funny that I saw the Guitar Hero sales in Japan... I'm going to say as a populace not entirely. Most cultures like their own music, but regardless cannot overlook the icons that stemmed the multitude of genres.

i go to japan every other year and japanese people do not know the jonas brothers at all lol
famous people like beyonce and kanye west are popular though.

i'm sure they do because america is one of the world's most influential countries so people
would want to do what americans do .. since they do consider america to be a "dream land"

lol,yes.on family outing,a korean t.v. show they played the jonas brothers once and i was very suprised.and yes as puppet89 said,mostly every country knows about american music and listen to them.they know micheal jackson in places that dont even have tvs or radios thats how influential our music is.same thing with sports,if you've seen the olympics you would know that the chinese people wanted the U.S. basketball team to win more then their own.models,actors,musicans,know that if they make it big in america then you are known throughtout the world.thats why asian artists try to debut in the united states cause they know they are the #1 market to be in.

mhmm..i'm surprised when I go to taiwan and my friends kno singers/bands who sing in English like.. Linkin Park, Daniel Powter, Gwen Stefani (I heard Hollaback girl in 3 stores), Usher (apparently they use Yeah at bball games)...etc
i doubt they really understand the lyrics tho...cuz i went to this store..and the storeowner had Crank Dat-Soulja boy as his ringtone x__x;

hmm well when i went to china, you'd have like justin timberlake ringtones and beyonce's songs might pop out of nowhere in a department store but no one actually goes and obsesses over it...and def. no jonas brothers or miley cyrus fans ew.

Yup, we do listen to their music.....
But whether people here like them or not it's depends on their taste....
A lot of people like Beyonce and Kanye West... But Jonash Brothers may not be that popular
