'X Factor' Rapper Astro Apologizes For Bad Behavior

Astro The X Factor

After he showed attitude while in the bottom two, HollywoodLifers thought Astro should be kicked off the show. But after his apology, are you be willing to forgive him? See what Simon Cowell had to say!

The X Factor definitely found a star in pint-sized rapper Astro, and now the teen prodigy says he feels so bad about the outburst that almost got him axed from the show!

Astro took to his Facebook on Nov. 18 to apologize for the behavior, which led to him almost refusing to perform for judges on the Nov. 17 episode.

“I believed I was being mistreated,” he wrote. “My guards are always up, and maybe I took the situation too heavy. I seriously apologize to my fans — what I said and my emotions weren’t directed toward you. I’m 15, and I think I know everything. But the truth is, I don’t, and I handled the situation wrong!”

In return, judge Simon Cowell tweeted on Nov. 18 that everything was all good.

“Met with Astro and his father today and @LA_Reid. Everything is much calmer now and the good news is he’s back on the show next week,” he wrote.

But according our recent poll, 72 percent of HollywoodLifers think Astro should be booted from the show for his behavior! As one commenter wrote, “Astro has to go!!! He had 5 million reasons to have a good attitude. The judges show just how much respect they have about his attitude by keeping him on the show. It just shows money rules.”

What do you think, HollywoodLifers — do you accept Astro’s apology?

Not only does Astro have a horrible, self-entitled, over-blown ego, he’s also a liar. I can’t believe he blamed his behaviour on not being able to use his headphones. Does he think we’re that stupid. LA Reid probably wrote out the phony apology for the ignorant little brat.

Astro is a kid, thats the bottom line. Kids that age are going thru a lot of changes at 15 esp when in the spot light. Let him learn from this, Im sure he will come out better. Give him a chance now to redeem himself and this will make him a better performer in the long run when he is older. GIVE THIS KID A CHANCE, JUST AS WE ALL DESERVE ONE!

Can’t stand this little brat!!! I didn’t like him in the beginning when he wouldn’t get off the floor and dance like all of the other “X-Factor” hopefuls. He should have been eliminated right on the spot and here the brat is in the Top 9!!! Doesn’t stand for doing the right thing to be the X-Factor. He doesn’t qualify and needs to go home so his mommy can teach him some manners!!! He is NO ROLE MODEL for sure!

I had bad vibes about Astro from the beginning. LA Reid says he wants more from Drew, that she is the same every week. Hello Astro does rap/hip hop every week – boring! Not fair to the other singers who have to sing different genres every week. I watch him at the beginning of the results shows and he just doesn’t sing at all with the others. Rachel Crow is around the same age as Astro and she has a brilliant attitude and persona! If he has such a high opinion of himself now God help us if he does become a ‘star’. All for kids making it but just because he is young doesn’t mean we have to like him.

The fact Astro appeared on stage wearing Dr. Dre’s headphones when X Factor has a deal with Sony proves that no company will want to trust him with an endorsement deal. The sponsers pay money so the show is broadcast and sponsers pay for ARTISTS to go on tour. Astro is biting the hand that is feeding him and he doesn’t even have a contract yet. He is a spoiled brat and I have lost all respect for him after he apoligized and then tried to say it was because of the headphones incident. He should have been disqualified as soon as he appeared on stage with those headphones since X Factor has a deal with Sony. At 15 he is old enough to know that sponsers pay for all the exposure he has gotten.
And tonight the theme was who are you grateful to? Simon was correct that his song was not fitting with the theme of the night. Astro is so full of himself that I really hope he is voted off on the result show.

He should be taken out the show. It was unbelievable that he was kept in,for what can only be deemed as a little baby having a tantrum Astro has such a big ego and thinks he is gods gift to earth and for that reason the show should do the right thing for once and send the right message to the public and to the youth!

If he couldn’t handle being in bottom two, how will he handle rejection in the music world. He is the kind to end up on drugs to handle the pressure of the entertainment world. The really sad thing is it doesn’t matter what we think, the judges are going to keep him everytime. If no one votes for him maybe they will get it.

Because he’s black? Stop it. A bad attitude and lack of respect for the audience that can make his career has nothing to with race. He’s immature and way into himself. He needs to eat a bit of humble pie.

@ BUSTED : People really crack me when they try to pull the “race card” to question the motives behind people and their opinions. I am black and I am among those who voted against Astro. It’s not because of his color it’s because of his NASTY attitude! Our youth has it all wrong. Our youth should be grateful to the many people who fought for equality and paved the way for us all to reap the benefits. They also should be grateful to their parent(s) for busting the butt to give them a better life than what they had! Instead of being grateful and making a positive impact on society, our youth has taken it upon themselves to think that they are ENTITLED to things WITHOUT having to work for them. Case and point… Do you remember as a kid after a snowstorm going out with your shovel to make extra money? How many kids do you see actually getting out from in front of the tv or putting down their Xbox’s and Wii to actually go out and shovel after a storm? I’ve seen parents outside shoveling snow while letting their kids be lazy and stay inside. WHAT!! Unfortunately, I think it’s too late to change Astro’s attitude. That should have been done when he first started to display this nasty and spoiled attitude. What a shame….

I also did not approve of the way Astro acted this particular evening, but I’m not going to blame it on race or anything, but him and how he’s let stardome go completely to his head. Teebone couldn’t have been more right with his post, but I just really hope Astro has learned a valuable lesson from all of this because not knowing how to humble still may have cost him everything!!!
