EXCLUSIVE! The X Factor's Astro Breaks The Rules BIG TIME!

| Filed under: Exclusives!X Factor

And no one is happy with him. No one.

A kid like Astro … he's got a lot of talent, but it sounds like he still has a lot of growing up to do. After he pulled some major tude last night when he fell into the bottom two, we got sent a story about his blatant disregard for the rules of the show and how the producers are NOT happy with him.

A source reports to PerezHilton.com EXCLUSIVELY that Astro consciously ignored the show's people when they told him he couldn't wear a pair of Dr Dre's Beats headphones around his neck during his performance this week. For whatever the reason - licensing, no affiliation wit Dr. Dre, etc. - the producers warned him not to disobey them, that it would cost them a lot of time and money if he did.

Yet he did it anyways!

As you can see in the video (above), because they didn't have the rights to the headphones, they had to blurred out. However, they were only able to do that AFTER the fact, since the show went up live. Who knows the repercussions they face from Dre. and his brand people now.

Show insiders add he's been VERY difficult to deal with the last couple of weeks, showing a lack of respect for staff and the rules.

Not cool little dude. You are NOT a star yet and these kind of antics will ensure that you never become one.

    You can take the kid out of the ghetto….



  3. 3

    There's a million other kids that sound just as crappy as he does on YouTube…..Send him back to Juvie…..

    fuck them! poor x factors can't make more money



  5. 5

    Blacks being black. It's time for Afro to get the boot.



  6. 6

    The kid is just babbling ghetto nonsense all the time. Does he realize that rap is a dying act?



  7. 7

    Why are they still enabling glamorizing Ghetto Scum?
    .
    He a product of he Ghetto Mama.



  8. 8

    you know what happens when you act like that no fix juvenile detention very soon sad i going to do a rap for you astro you should stay were you belong in the universe cause here in earth you dont belong



  9. 9

    Look at Chris Brown, unfortunately, it doesnt matter in that industry if you have a bad attitude if you can make everyone a lot of money…



  10. 10

    Re: Mad Dog
    Wow I didn't realize we had so many bigoted racists still in America. "black being blacks?" Are you kidding me? Well as a black person, who is much smarter and much more successful than you, I would like to inform you that you are an idiot. Check my Ivy League degree on the wall. Yea, how about that for "blacks being blacks?" Guess I'll be black all the way to the bank =)



  11. 11

    I admit he's talented for his age, but when you tell a kid that young that he's amazing or a superstar or whatever the hell LA told him, he's gonna act like it. He's a punk kid who is in serious need of a lesson and the real world isn't gonna be nice to him. Rap is crap to me so he better learn fast



  12. 12

    I dont understand why he is on there. He may have talent, sure, but hes disrespectful and rap is NOT SINGING.



  13. 13

    He is a little punk! I hope he is gone, next week. Producers are stupid, all they had to do was pull his performance and refuse him to go on stage.



  14. 14

    I'm really not sure how being black and rapping equates to being ghetto. I bet none of you even know anything about the ghetto. *SMH* We still have so many ignorant racists in America. It's actually quite sickening. I guess since i'm black and listen to rap, I must also be "ghetto." Doesn't quite jive with my Ivy League degree though, huh?



  15. 15

    what's the point of writing a racist, ignorant comment — it just makes you look like a racist, ignorant jackass.



  16. 16

    Wow Perez, nice way to appeal to a bunch of fat redneck middle age housewife racists, you queen. These comments clearly lay out that there's a LOT of work left to do in race relations in this country. "Send him to juvie," "blacks being black," "punk kid" and "5 more years and he'll be in jail" are clear examples that middle America has not moved beyond race discussion in this country. Fat cows like Hilray and Mad Dog need to get their heads out of their asses and their mouths off of chris rene or burrito boy's cock and get the hell over themselves. It's a reality show for christ's sake.



  17. 17

    ……simon should have sent his little disrespectful ass home…..and since the "black" word came up….i'm black and from the caribbean and am frankly quite tired of these african american attitudes…..



  18. 18

    All these comments here show way worse attitude than Astro's. Kid is brilliant and deserves to win.



  19. 19

    WHY IS HE STILL ON THE SHOW???/ This is why teens today have no respect. Behavior like his is allowed. He should have been removed from the show immediately!!!! He (and his PARENTS) should be held responsible for all fines….The producer who didn't see that they were on his neck should be FIRED. This kid will be another Lindsey and WE ALLOW IT!!!! I'm done with this show, just like I'm done with any show that puts common sense, decency and respect for the viewers in a back seat to ratings and money.

    Sick of the damm black kids who think they are owed something and have no respect!!



  20. 20

    I bet if he gets kicked out for his stupidity, he'll learn about respect!!!! how can the show allow behavior like that?



  21. 21

    Re: acmiles2010 – Agreed, and even you must be disgusted by the behavior…Why don't you do something about it….because all you have is a piece of paper…I have one too, but you don't see white kids, or indian kids, or asians kids behave like this kid did….Even othe black rappers don't act like this kid did and yet… he'll be on again next week….Whatever!!! Don't like the stereotype??? Do something about it….Because this kid fits it to a T



  22. 22

    I had never liked him.always fast forward his "act", there's something about him that BOTHERS THE HELL OUT OF ME!!! and after this week I hope he is the next one to go… I knew Stacy was going to leave, but just to teach him a lesson, I would have gotten rid of him… audience was booing him… he did dig his own grave!



  23. 23

    rap is evil and encourages criminality. All these gangsters bragging about bullet wounds and jail sentences…totally glamorizing it. Should be ashamed of corrupting young kids like that. Utter filth and lowlifes.



  24. 24

    whats the big deal ?
    these headphones are everywhere and they are getting a free xmas like commercial on one of the most viewed shows in america

    i wouldnt complain…



  25. 25

    Re: Alliestp
    All I have is a "piece of paper," and education, common decency, and common sense. You cannot evaluate people by their skin color. His skin color has nothing to do with his merits as a person. Furthermore, I dont see why I should be disgusted by his act of wearing headphones around his neck. In the end, the show's production allowed him to go on stage and perform with the headphones on. If they didnt want him to perform with them on, it was in their power to deny him access to the stage. It's really that simple. So I am not really seeing how he is so awful, disrespectful, and ghetto. Also, yes, there are plenty of people of other races who exhibit much much worse behavior. This site provides enough fodder to corroborate that point. Geez, the kid wore a pair of headphones around his neck. I guess we should send him to jail for that? Give me a break people. So simple-minded.

    26

    Re: acmiles2010 – Yes, but you only got in because of affirmative action. You basically stole a seat from an excellent student and intelligent, articulate man like George W. Bush who has done SO much for all of us.

    In all seriousness though, I teach Sociology at fairly diverse university and the number of blatantly racist statements that I get on papers/tests never ceases to amaze.



  27. 27

    Think he might be being set up to be the american frankie cocozza. The UK X Factor has learnt how much publicity they can get from booting someone off the show for rule-breaking so it makes sense the American one would give it a go next.

  28. 6one9 says – reply to this


    28

    Boot his ass NOW!!!!! Lil PUNK!!



  29. 29

    i hope some of these comments are "jokes" seriously "ghetto" ??? what the hell is wrong with you ??



  30. 30

    Re: yeez

    LOL yea the same people who cry affirmative action are the same ones who pay me money to tutor their prep school kids for the SAT. It's hilarious. I know, the blatant racism is actually quite surprising to me. I thought we'd be a little bit more advanced by now. I guess that's just wishful thinking though.



  31. 31

    Why would there be any repercussions from Dre? Doesn't everyone like free advertising?



  32. 32

    Exactly what we need, another entitled rapper that thinks because he's made it can disrespect rules and do as he pleases. Can you imagine if this little jerk actually won the 5 million the kind of crap he would be pulling then? His mother should be ashamed of him. From the very beginning you could see he had an arrogance and way about him that was not good. All I can say is hopefully he gets removed from the show next week, I cant imagine having to sit through his crappy attitude for another week.

  33. PHARO says – reply to this


    33

    I KNEW AND STATED LONG AGO HE'S A PUNK WHY IS ASSTROTURD EVEN THERE STILL..NO TALENT AND TOO YOUNG..WILL WIND UP LIKE MOST THUGS DO…RHINNA AND LA REID MADE A HUGE MISTAKE…BUT I KNEW THEY WERE GONNA PICK WHO THEY PICKED..SHE DON'T LIKE WHITE PEOPLE..ONLY BLACKS..LOST RESPECT FOR HER WHEN I FOUND THAT OUT LAST YEAR.



  34. 34

    I don't care what color he is. He is a punk. He has acted like this from day one. Has no respect for anyone. They need to send his ass back home. I know white kids who behave like this and if he or any other kid, regardless of race continue to behave like this, then yes, you will NOT go far in life. He hasn't made it to the big time yet and producers such as, LA Reid, might not take a chance on him!



  35. 35

    Let me add…I don't think he is, "ghetto"! I think that he is a "PUNK"! He has no manors or respect for anyone. He needs a rude awaking!!



  36. 36

    Obviously Astro is really young and immature. He doesn't realize what an opportunity he before him. Maybe he should have been sent home to show him just what a bad attitude will get him in this world. Stacy Francis should have stayed. She showed more heart , passion and commitment than most of the other contestants. Just one more example showing our young generation that if you act like a brat and are distrespecful you will be respected. Great example..Kanye West !!Shameful!!



  37. 37

    This story sure emphasizes the racism in America. I expect Hollywood to start an It Get Better campaign for minorities soon.



  38. 38

    What barbaric comments! No wonder human race in such deep crap. Hate and prejudice, in 21st century! Never going back to this site again, but just wanted to defend the kid. I give him a lot of credit for not complying with the rules, that shows the integrity of his personality. He was also the only one not dancing during the bootcamp, if you remember. I think that shows the strength of character if anything. As far as his meltdown yesterday, my heart goes out to him, he is not ready at this age to be alone without his mom, under so much pressure. If I were his mom, I would never let him go there in the first place, or be there with him the whole time. This is wrong what they do to these kids, and make money on the drama in the process. This is wrong.



  39. 39

    Can I also point out the Astro is the only person writing his own music. His bottom 2 performance was a flow that he wrote himself. All of the other contestants just sing other people songs. That takes skill but absolutely no creativity.



  40. 40

    I bet its not Dre that is the one upset. I bet Pepsi threw a fit because of the millions they fork out for advertising on the show, and Dre's Heartbeats gets free advertising. I admit Astro is a pretty talented kid but I think fame will give him a bigger head than he already has.



  41. 41

    Re: acmiles2010 – Chris Rene has been writing his own lyrics as well as Astro.



  42. 42

    I'm an Irish American who grew up in a nice part of California so I will not even begin throwing words around like: "ghetto" because aside from a stereotype I am not sure what that means. What I do know is when you are a contestant on a singing show where the prize is $5 million you should at least be able to SING your way through a rock song when the theme is: ROCK. This annoyed me greatly and is probably the breaking point for me in regards to this show. Two contestants didn't sing Rock and got away with it. That is weird. So I think for that alone Astro should have gone but his attitude last night and now this thing with the headphones is pathetic and immature. If he has great talent (I cannot be the judge since I don't enjoy the aesthetic of Rap performed by anyone) than someone will sign him and invest in his career. But winning 5 million when you are unable to step outside your comfort zone and show some diversity in talent all the while acting disrespectful to the producers and the audience? No, I do not think so.



  43. 43

    re: Ritakatya dont make excuses for him because hes 14, by now he should know how to behave himself hes 14 for crying out loud.He threw a tantrum like a little 5 year old. Rachel Crow is the same age and has shown that she is a well mannered, respectful young lady, I can assure you she would have handled the situation far better. Astro is a punk and has shown a bad attitude from the very beginning. I have two kids and I can assure you I would put a whoopin to my kids butts if they ever showed the arrogance or disrespect for people the way this little punk has. I dont care that hes black, I care that adults make excuses for little punks like this. This is why our youth is the way they are, cause the adults dont reprimand them for their bad attitude or bad behavior, they make excuses for them. He is the product of his parents, and obviously his Mom doesnt have a problem with the way he acts, as he was disrespectful at the auditions.



  44. 44

    If he is breaking the rules just kick him off the show. End of story



  45. 45

    Face it, the boy got skills!!! im quite surprised that the both of them were at the bottom 2. There were others that should have been there, but america has their favorites even though some of them have no talent. Astro is a TRUE artist, he writes his own lyrics, very confident and can hold his own. America needs to understand the boy is young, he's under a lot of pressure, he probably misses his mother, and guarantee going through puberty. Anyone who has raised kids know what a child is going through in their teens. Give the boy some props america for heavens sake…..



  46. 46

    BTW…The racist comments SUCK! It has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin. Grow up people.



  47. 47

    Skimming over these comments (most are worth reading) it is very sad to read. The boy is just a kid. He only knows how great it thinks he is so he has a lot to learn. I agree his attitude stunk and I wanted him to go home to learn a leason hopefully he won't repeat that again. COMMENTORS: GROW THE HELL UP!!!!!



  48. 48

    "This is the reality of today's youth. Each generation is increasingly disrespectful, entitled, and self-centered. This "I do what I want, f–k you if you don't like it" attitude is what's going to destroy this country as these little sh-t bags grow up and continually expect the world to kiss their a– as adults. No hard work required, I get what I want because I demand it. Makes me sick."

    This kid needs a good lesson..like being kicked out of the show!

    Re: nickymeatball – I was thinking the same. He doesnt sing, he just talks.



  51. 51

    AStro YOU MAKE THIS SHOW WORTH WATCHING
    You can Break it by leaving. AND have the last Laugh. Because EVERYONE, even thoughs who oppose you Knows your career will outlast The Show.. LOL

    LEAVE THE SHOW because it is NOT WORTHY of you.

  53. 53

    Re: acmiles2010 – Really, you didn't realize it? Come on, who are you trying to kid? There is a LEGITIMATE reason racism still is prevalent in society today. If you don't know that then it doesn't matter how many Ivy League degrees you have, you apparently never learned any common sense. Picture this, you are walking down a city street at night a group of 3 black men approach with their pants half way to the ground, you can't tell me that that wouldn't make you more nervous than a group of 3 whites approaching dressed in college sports apparel. If you do try to say it you are naive or lying. It is sad but it is a reality.



  54. 54

    Re: Mad Dog – You are a disgusting disease that permeates the world. Blacks being blacks? really? go hang yourself!



  55. 55

    Here's the thing. No one in their right MIND can defend his behavior last night. Yeah he's immature, but he's not the only child on the show. And the other girls are not acting, nor have they ever acted like a self-entitled spoiled brat. The earphones showed blatant disrespect for the producers and the show. The fact that he felt like "he shouldn't have to perform" because for some reason he was "better than that" was so outrageous to me I was mortified for his mother. He has THE WORST attitude I have ever seen in my life. And to have him hold up his microphone and say "Nah not really Simon" while Simon was talking and "I don't feel like I should perform for people who don't want to vote for me" is SO ABSOLUTELY CHILDISH it makes me sick. As far as the race cards go, the black community should be really upset with Astro for supporting the disgusting ignorant stereotypes again black kids. I've been stereotyped by black women a lot because they assume I'm just a white girl. But I will never stoop to that level, because I will not be the one to prove their point. Astro needs to realize he's representing himself in a way that's going to make more than just himself look bad.



  56. 56

    Re: HILRAY – really hilray??? he'll be in jail? wow, why? cause he's a black kid or because he raps? and much like your name hilray, we should assume that your husband, dare i say you have one, will find a attractive young woman, and screw her while you look the other way…….you are completed worthless…granted his behavior was inappropriate but he's a kid and that what kids do, he pout and throw fits. you on the other hand I will assume suppose to be an adult, what's your worthless excuse!



  57. 57

    Re: ritakatya – Not complying with the rules is a show of integrity?. WOW, you are SO WRONG. No wonder why so many bad things going on around the world, since now everybody seems to be entitled to do absolutely whatever the f*ck they want without taking into consideration other peoples words.



  58. 58

    Re: CaliCoyote – ghetto? much like your buddy Hilray,whom I just blasted, Coyoteugly, im assuming he has to be ghetto because he's black….you are completely worthless, much like your name, I will assume, that you need to continue to lay your back and make a living…absolutely worthless!



  59. 59

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – What is Perez promoting on here? Lets blasts a different race to make ourselves feel much better? Ghetto mama? really? you are a disgusting maggot….your views are cancerous and frankly, do me and favor and much like your buddy "mad god" whom I just blasted, go hang yourself, ingrade!



  60. 60

    Re: acmiles2010 – I just blasted mad dog, hilray, calicoyote and and another worthless biggot. Believe it, racism is alive and well! outrageous!



  61. 61

    Re: icommenter – second



  62. 62

    Re: Alliestp – damn blacks kids who think they own everything? if you are so sick of them, take your igorant ass to EUROPE! this is also not your country, "WE" all know who the really AMERICANS are! you are another worthless racist disease ingrade, much like the others i have previously blasted, GO HANG YOURSELF, worthless disease!



  63. 63

    Aside from the racism, I'd like to address the other form of prejudice poisoning these comments - age discrimination. "Each generation is increasingly disrespectful, entitled, and self-centered." - Really?! Come on. You can't really believe that's true. That bratty kids didn't exist before, or that youth today have some strange new 'asshole' hormones raging through them. The only difference with society today is the explosion of media and reality TV - all our flaws are just being emphasized - as is evident right here in these comments. We're obviously not as perfect as we thought we were. Astro hardly represents the majority of kids or teens worldwide. If so, why aren't we at least dogging Melanie Amaro, Drew, Rachel, Marcus, or Lakoda Rayne? I'm not saying they're necessarily perfect, we can't know that. But besides, Hollywood is NOT an ordinary environment for kids, in particular. Obviously, Astro's arrogance is just being amplified on a show as big as this, without sound parental/adult guidance.



  64. 64

    Re: Alliestp – yes, im black and disgusted by his behavior, but what GIVES you the right to stereotype and place every black kid in a category???? much like your views on blacks, you are doing the same thing you claim you dislike most about them, you FEEL you are better, based on your comments…do me a favor and educate yourself….what is perez running here? WHITE NATION? Utterly DISGUSTED!



  65. 65

    I am beyond disgusted by the arrogance and igorance of individuals! Yes, Astro behavior was undeniable inappropriate, but why should his race play a factor in his behavior??? What is Perez running here? White Nation? Really? Its apparent the human race will never evolve when there are so many close-minded slavery views running rampart. BTW, ignorants does devise from "color" but from what an individuals SPEWS out their mouths!



  66. 66

    This kid is a punk, a role model for other young aspiring artists? I think not. Maybe some think his attitude is cool and appropriate, but he acts like so many other brats his age who take no responsibility for their actions and will become an adult who thinks everything is owed him. I am not racist, just stating an obvious fact. As far as his talent, I fast forwarded all of his performances not because of his method choice, I do like some rap, it's the material he raps about that a child his age has no concept of. As a mother I would be so ashamed of the way he disrespected everyone. But then, he is a product of his home environment, so one would guess his mama is very proud of him. I will fast forward another performance and then hopefully he will be gone. BRAT PUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!



  67. 67

    Re: revolve77 – I SOOOOOOO AGREE



  68. 68

    Re: zeta2007 – you're retarded. it wasnt america when the indians claimed the land. white people came and then they decided to create the USA. so yes white people create the country. get over it dumbass.



  69. 69

    Re: PHARO – yes you are right astro is a fuckin punk and thug kid and after what he said on tv his mama should be kicking his ass AMEN to that



  70. 70

    Re: PHARO – like i said AMEN to what you said astro is a punk a thug kid his mama should kisk his ass what he did on tv last night



  71. 71

    i know this little thug punk ASTRO had the nerve to show off on tv his MAMA needs to kick his ass all the way home shame on you ASTRO go back home



  72. 72

    Re: PHARO – check this out iam with you on astro he is a punk a thug i say go home little boy you cant sing worth shit

  73. ME13 says – reply to this


    73

    take him off that show, he has no respect.



  74. 74

    Re: AstroDustThemOff – If you havent pro-created yet, please refrain from doing so. Supporting his behavior leads me to believe that you are probably just a young punk yourself that has no respect for others, and probably for yourself.



  75. 75

    Wow Astro you just showed america how disrespectful you are. This is your opportunity to show them what you got but you just blew it. You have so much privilidge and a lot of people would be in the show instead you. This is your first step to be on the spotlight but dude your attitude is wayyyy beyond. You need to eat your ego!!! What's up with this comment about black people???!! I'm not black but come on. Not all blacks are same what you guys talking about.They are some educated and non educated. Same other racist too.



  76. 76

    They should kick him off the show. Maybe he'll learn? I saw his audition and he seemed very arrogant. It's good for him to have confidence but if he's being like that meh!



  77. 77

    Re: acmiles2010 – May I ask why you waste your time on sites like this if you are so proud of your Ivy League Degree…seems to me you would have a better way to use your time than posting comments on here



  78. 78

    why is it LA Reid constantly tells Simon that Drew is doing the same thing over and over again, but NO ONE has called out Astro for rapping EVERYTHING! LA Reid and Nicole want Drew to step outside the box but they dont expect Astro to NOT rap?!?! And, the song he picked to "rock" out to had already been by ripped by P. Diddy. So he needs to go along with Leroy, Marcus Canty, and Lakoda Rayne.



  79. 79

    Re: zeta2007 – Sounds like you are full of hate.



  80. 80

    I don't see why people are turning this into a race issue. Sounds like a generation issue. I see a lot of younger kids among all races with no manners and an exaggerated sense of entitlement, and it seems to be getting worse.



  81. 81

    I don't understand why it is that white people are perceived to be "ignorant" when the vast majority of us are just pointing out what is already evident. Stereotypes and judgement exist because there is some truth to them. Certainly there are capable intelligent african youth in todays society, but they are the exception, not the rule. Blacks get defensive and cry "racism" whenever their shortcomings are made apparent instead of striving to do better and actually contributing something worthwhile to our society. You can only play the race card for so long before you are forced to be held accountable for your behavior and general demeanor.



  82. 82

    I'm sure Dre is too cool of a dude to really make a big deal over this. Surely it wont "cost them a lot of money".



  83. 83

    Re: Mad Dog – I'm sorry…I'm not a fan of rap, nor do I speak "ebonics", note do I reside in "the hood", and I am degreed, successful, and very happy…is that also "blacks bring blacks". And yes I had two parents married 56 years, and they didn't like rap either. An attitude doesn't have a color…foolishness is not a race. Might I suggest you get some sort of education, you also seem to be lacking in the common sense department as well. Good luck on your journey.



  84. 84

    Clearly we have more uneducated people than I thought. And they are missing common sense as well. Why does everything have to come back to color? So could I safely say, "that's whites being white". Ignorance knows no color, thanks for the proof.



  85. 85

    That should read…nor do I reside in the hood. Also let me really correct this…"blacks being blacks". Too late!!!



  86. 86

    That should have read, nor do I reside in the hood….and please let me correct this: "blacks being blacks". Too late!!! Lol.



  87. 87

    Talent or no talent, he should have been sent home. He is a spoiled brat who thinks he's God's gift. Black, white or purple, disrespect should not be rewarded.



  88. 88

    I have hated this kid since day one. I cannot believe that they talk about him being the potential winner of the show. REALLY, for fuck sake? Every week I have been waiting for him to go. What I want to know is why bother singing for your lives if it has absolutely no effect whatsoever on the judges decision, because that temper tantrum and half assed performance was the worst thing I have ever seen, while Stacy sang her heart out. Every single week his little squeaky voice does the same thing over and over and over and over again, the only difference is the background music. What I also want to know, when they talk about diversity, changing it up, some of the artists not pushing themselves, what about him? Week in, week out, he sounds exactly the same. Any respect I had for Simon Cowell is out the window, if that'd been me, I would've brought them to a draw, and let the one with the lowest votes be gone. Astro is a pompous little shit, his act completely derivative, NOTHING original about it. Precocious and predictable. Get him to sing a fucking real song for once; let's see how he copes with that. Little shit. If he doesn't go, I will never ever watch this show again, already annoying, what with the audience screaming and whooping after every lyric the contestants sings, and the constant recap of their fucking journeys that doesn't allow us to hear anything much that the judges might want to say because there's no time left.

    I do not watch this show, but seriously, someone would have yanked those headphones off of him before he went out if breaking the rules was the case. This is a ploy to gain ratings: pay attention to my show, we'll pay the $, look at how this kid disobeys… the viewers are not dumb.

    i love thesse kid but i dont think america want to go back to the days of 2pac and biggy we all lent our lesson on that as much as i cry everything i listen to 2pace song i feel these kid is need someone to talk to him to have respect for people and i see these coming if by any chance he becomes a star we will be seeing that 2pac in him and i don't think i really want to start his life like that he is too young i think they should let him go before it is too late he is very rude

    TO DEMOCRAYZED. You obviously are another example of an ignorant Black moron who can't spell, read or write. Boats leave Florida every week for Africa….get on one and take that rude little punk with you

    Biting the hand that feeds him, and no real career yet.

    To Tearalvo - it's not racist. It is fact. Look where he comes from. He has no talent. He just grunts and jumps around the stage like a monkey. HE CANNOT SING. He'll be in jail for sure because he's just like the rest of them - rude, disrespectful, entitled, uneducated, and MEAN.

    Re: Laydee7 – BECAUSE IF ALL OF "Y'ALL KFC CORNBREAD EATIN MOFOS WOULD JUST SHUT UP AND CLEAN HOUSES AND BATHROOMS LIKE YOU'RE FIT TO DO, THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE. the darker the skin, the dumber, ruder, and meaner the mind!

    You mean a kid who's trying to do something positive with his lyrical prowess, will be in jail before the spectacular group of white kids that secured a reality show on "E!", following their entitled and recurring crime spree through A-list celebs homes?!! You mean a young kid that's doing something other than burglarizing homes and posing for pics with stolen items, while bragging to his friends about it, is considered ghetto?! Wow!



  96. 96

    ugh what a divo when he is a NOBODY!he has no talent there were so many good singers and that unrespectful boy somehow is there, If I was one of the judges I would of make him cry and shit in his pants for that behavoir, hope at least his parents or someone did, but unfortunatley he didn't go home when the girl who did go home is an splendid singer, he makes me sick



  97. 97

    I don't wish the kid any bad, nor dis where he comes from, but I believe it was a HUGE mistake for Simon to put him through above a woman whom HAS respect and has WORKED her Ass off to get there. Simon's reasoning was because he could see a possibility of THAT kid winning. Yeah I'm thinking NOT likely. To be so young and to think your "owed" above everyone else is crap. Everyone on there has worked their butts off and are deserving, and in my opinion, the boy can't sing, yes he has a talent with the lyrics but as for voice…no! Sorry but that is my opinion as a singer, and as a singer I do know how privileged those people are to be standing on that stage!

    Re: ZioCapra – Very well said!!!! 100% AGREED! Why is this behavior allowed AT ALL from anyone who are getting the opportunity to win a "5,000,000.00" contract! Really? As a singer, I would die for that opportunity!!! Clueless, disrespectful little BRAT! I would be soooooo ashamed if that was my child! He CAN'T sing…period, his only talent is being a undeserving BRAT!

    Perez, I usually just read your articles but I had to create a username for this one. There are a lot of racist, nasty comments below directed at a 15 year old kid. I really think you've got a responsibility for these to be moderated.

    You guys sound like a bunch of idiots! Let me break it down for you. The X factor knew people wanted to hear him rap again, because it good for viewership, they placed him in the bottom 2. There is no way in hell he got less votes than Dakota rain. HAHA thats a joke! wanting to cool his ego and boost that of those who thinks he has it in the bag for sure i.e. Drew, they thought this was a good move for all involved, knowing ASTRO would make it through regardless. What they didn't plan for was his reaction, although it was immature, they deserved it for taking advantage of him like that. If he doesn't win the competition, he will have a bigger record deal than anyone who does and more longevity…SWAG! Now, I'm surprised that none of you have even thought of this given that you are all so into this show,Everything on TV is not exactly what it seems….come on people…look at the big picture!
