I am so insulted that jpguy didn't even mention any talented artists from the Philippines!
Anyway, the world revolves around the west, particularly in the USA, the dominant features there (black, white, etc) are the ones that will always be the more successful ones, not just in music but in modeling, entertainment, business, entrepreneurship, politics, there are rarely any Asians that make it as big as Obama, Oprah, Meryl Streep, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Steve Jobs, Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerberg, Donatella Versace, Gisele Bunschen, Cindy Crawford, etc. They are more culturally embraced and easily supported and accepted than those with Asian features.
The only game changer is sports, where its the skill and not the image (or looks and features) that matters.
Steve Jobs, Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerberg, Obama??? Do you really think they are successful because of their image? In their respective areas, skills are important too, not "being sexy or beautiful"
They are most likely to succeed because of their image too! I mean, it's not about beauty in their case, but for sure, there are also a lot of Asians who are smarter and can compete with them in terms of skills, but if let's say for example, Obama, Oprah and Steve Jobs were in an Asian body, do you think they will be celebrated or elected at all? I highly doubt it, a huge part of their charisma, and ability to connect well to their audience and consumers (but not all of it is credited to that, don't get me wrong) is because of their ancestry.
