    Jay Sean is the most successful male UK import in the USA since Elton john...the man has enjoyed a no.1 song on the billboard charts, a feat that could not be managed by robbie williams, Oasis and loads of other british hopefuls who really tried to crack America but could not...even though they are huuuuuuge in this country....

    Do you feel that the media in this country has brushed his achievemnt under the carpet? I kinda think he wouyld be more recognised if he were regarded as a "true brit" by the media and geeneral public, but I think his Indian heritage has prevented some British people (media in this country in particular) from getting behind the man, even though he is representing our country on a global scale in the music world..again a feat that other english men have failed miserably at (westlife anyone? lol! )

    I'm awar that most people on this site probably don't like his music has it isn't the stereotypical "your sex is on fire", lets grow our hair long and ALL have fringes and wear the same skinny jeans, indie stuff, (im joking! chill out emo warriors!), but are you proud of your fellow brits achievements?

    Im wondering because I cannot understand why the media here doesn't show him any recognition, when he's a huuuge star overseas.... is it due to the asian stigmatism in this country which he may not suffer in America? (a country that has wholly embraced ethinic minorities into their pop scene...)

    would he appeal more to you if he was white, could barely sing and his name was dave?

    what are your thoughts guys!

    It's because he's doing stuff over there and not here right now...

    Also, why should I care about what another person's doing? If they're doing well, that's great, but I really don't see why I should be proud... they're his achievements. I'm not going to eat off his plate...

    I think what he's doing is great. I personally don't enjoy that genre of music but good on him for his success. He has achieved a lot in the UK but right now he is clearly being a star in the US.

    Its because he is generally doing American music, he just happens to be British. He is signed to an American label, singing songs written and produced by American musicians and collaborating with American artists. There is not really any hint of the British music scene in his music (the singles that have charted anyway). He is just an internationally successful artist who just happens to be from London

    He is not English, his civic identity is British, however the english are an ethnic group.

    Edited to add - Neg rep me all you want, the English are an ethnic group, this is fact.

    He didn't get credit because he's got less creativity than a bowl of porridge and sucks harder than Monica Lewinski. Get over it you shameless fanboy
