Natasha Bedingfield: I Would Love To Collaborate With Astro From 'X Factor'

Natasha Bedingfield told HollywoodLife.com she really wants to work with her favorite ‘The X Factor’ competitor from this season, Astro!

With three studio albums and international success, Natasha Bedingfield is one singer who knows what she’s talking about — and when it comes to The X Factor, she’s convinced Astro, the 14-year-old rapper, was the most talented performer in the entire competition.

“I think he is the one who is going to be a star of all of them,” the 30-year-old British pop singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the VocalizeU launch party at Rolling Stone Restaurant Hollywood last weekend.

When we asked if she’d be interested in collaborating with the teen rapper, she said “absolutely,” explaining, “I love that he writes his own raps, I thought that was very cool.”

She added, “I think sometimes The X Factor misses the real talent because it’s all about singing other people’s songs, [but] a true artist that is long term creates their own original stuff.”

We agree — which is one of the reasons we love Chris Rene, who’s still in the competition.
