Who Knows Tarkan in America?
In response to a question whether she is "thinking of breaking into international markets like Tarkan", she is written to have said: "Everyone does. But what we in Turkey think that means is to sing concerts to the Turkish diaspora abroad.
"But it's completely different to be someone that everyone knows in America or England, because sadly it's these two countries that determine popular culture and world music. Sure, Tarkan is our most well known artist, but if I asked an American friend of mine today he won't know who he is."
