'X Factor' Prodigy Astro: I'm Awkward With Girls

Astro The X Factor

Astro may be the smoothest rapper in town, but he’s says it’s quite the opposite story when it comes to getting a girlfriend

Astro made The X Factor history last night during the results show by refusing to sing for his life and then eventually succumbing to the pressure. Even though the 15-year-old acts like the cockiest guy around, he admitted to HollywoodLife.com it’s all a big facade — especially when it comes to girls.

“Um….to be honest, no…I’m not really [smooth with the ladies],” Astro told us after the show Nov. 16. “I’m a lame kid from Brooklyn. I just love makin’ music.”

Astro was thought to be one of the favorites this season, but was shockingly put in the bottom two Nov. 17. Unfortunately, he didn’t respond well to the bottom and acted out so much, his attitude almost got him voted off the show.

Do YOU think he’ll last or will his cocky attitude come back to haunt him?
