It seems that most developed or globalized countries watch american movies and listen to MOSLTY american music, why is that, is there a history for this wonderful country in getting all the fame? Obviously we dont have those boy bands like Justin Biber(canada) or One Direction(UK). By the way i am a huge fan of Adele, the beetles and other artist. Also looking at some countries top movies right now like Australia, al the top movies are american in developed or globalized countries, why is this, does america just get lucky?

Because the US pushes their stuff more aggressively than any other country. One of the US embassies' primary functions is business/commerce. Pushing product, helping expand market share.

Yes, many people watch American films, listen American music, etc. But..................MOSTY? I don't think so. At least I can name too many films, singers, musicians and millionaires that are not American, not even anglo.

Maybe that is just your impression because you have never been abroad? Go to India, they have their giant Bollywood with their own stars that you have never even heard of. Same in Brazil, lots of excellent movies, TV shows, music and the actors and musicians behind it.

I guess the English language helps a lot. There are so many actors from Britain and other English-speaking countries in Hollywood...

And yes, as Ruth says, there is a huge industry behind it in the US, it is more about money than about art.
