Astro Apologizes For Cocky X Factor Actions

| Filed under: Tacky & TrueX FactorAstro

Last week, Astro displayed very poor behavior on the stage of X Factor. When he was put in the bottom two, he gave some major 'tude and it didn't sit well.

Stacy Francis ended up being the one to go (bout time), but Astro was still left with a lot of explaining to do.

We even got the EXCLUSIVE word that he blatantly disobeys producers' rules on the show! SMH!

But we're guessing Astro is finally realizing the effect of his actions, because he went to his Facebook to make an apology:

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! Win or lose next week, I will make you all proud!?

What I do, I do for the love of Hip-Hop and my fans, and I would never doing anything to hurt either. I believed I was being mistreated, and in the moment I thought about Ali's moment. I want to be the new ambassador for Hip-Hop and a leader of a new young movement of positive kids, but to be that I must have Integrity and Honor first!

People are saying I'm "cocky" and "arrogant", well maybe I have watched too many Muhammed Ali films or maybe I grew up having to fight my way home everyday or battle on street corners of Brooklyn for respect. My guards are always up, and maybe I took the situation too heavy.

All right, Astro. You are 15, after all. We get that. But even this statement was cocky! Sigh.. but we really hope you're serious about this. We'd be disappointed if you fell back on your recent reflection and screwed up again!

We mean, we've been this kid's fan from day one until this stuff started happening!

Thoughts?

    said the publicist to the cocky, arrogant punk Astro: Your getting serious backlash for your behavior, which really wont matter when your rich and famous because when you have money and fame you can act however you want and get away with it, just ask Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and your douchebag idol Kanye West. So listen Astro, we need you to write some lame ass apology so that the public will feel bad for you, cause you are after all only fifteen. Believe me it will work, it works all the time. Just ask all the other douchebags in this industry the continue to have great careers after screwing up.

    he's 15, get over it perez…… he said sorry, it isnt like he hit some girl who he was dating or some one we know…. lets move on :)

    He behaved like the teenager he is. I'm not saying it's ok, but let's not forget he's a child, not an adult and he's still learning and seeing how far he can push the limits. Cut the kid some slack, as long as he's showing sings of maturing, you can't really expect him to be as level-headed as a grown-up. Let's hope he becomes a responsible adult with one hell of a carreer! =)

    Oh yes u-huh all is forgiven…..NOT!!! Who is he kidding even if his advisors suggested he make some sort of mea culpa apology, he screwed it up. He needs to find some humility, instead he is arrogant and thinks too highly of himself. He needs a reality check, he is damn lucky to be on the show to begin with; I am surprised he is able to fit through a doorway with a head as big as he has…who is he to compare himself to Ali? Oh and lets not forget Ali was boxer not a hip hop artist. Dont compare yourself to greatness when you behave in such a horrible way. Lets really examine whatthis punk does…he takes songs and changes the lyrics so he can "speak" them not sing them….how did he make it on the X Factor?? The other contestants are on a whole different level artistically than this kid…he should have been sent home, but we all know that he would have screamed the race card if he were sent home last week. Gee wonder what song he is going to butcher next…send him home…he isnt deserving of $5 mil

    This little shit punk might grow up to make Chris Brown look like a choir boy in comparison, if someone doesn't shoot him first.



  6. 6

    my fans blahblah…my fans blahblahblah…yep still a jumped up little shit with delusions! And we all know he's been told to apologise to minimise any damage. Sorry but we know true colors when we see them. Bye bye little boy youve blown it.



  7. 7

    I'm surprised that he's lived this long if he carries that 'tude in the street.
    .
    That's a "I got shot ta def runnin' my mout" 'tude.

    He's a kid. He apologized profusely that night, and again and again. And he'll keep apologizing. He was speaking from a place of pain, not anger. He should get another shot.

    There are idiots talking about him like he's a hoodlum. He's a gifted artist, and as the mother of two profoundly gifted children, I can tell you: they are not always PC. They tend to speak their minds.

    So, to the racist jerks saying that hip hop and rap isn't music, and say that he's just another black kid who thinks he is entitled to the world…let me speak your language for a minute: If he was on the streets, and he shot someone for their iPhone, he'd be in juvi…but in 3 years, his record would be completely expunged, and you wouldn't know that.

    In comparison to that stereotypical black kid in your head, Astro has been working his ass off for months, basically writing brand new songs, keeping up with his schoolwork, and giving performances 2-3 performances in one night that have the biggest rappers in the world looking at him with two thoughts: 1) I could make something of this kid, and 2) Where's my throne again?

    He said something dumb on TV. If he was a 15 year old white country singer who said, "I don't want to sing for y'all if you don't like me", would he deserve another shot, as far as you are concerned?

    little gangsta kid thought the audience dissed him so he copped a tude!
    .
    arrogant, spoiled little baby needs to be voted out fast!
    if he's like this now..what will he be like if he ever gets famous!



  10. 10

    I will be so very happy if he gets voted off this week. Totally classless little punk. Spoiled to the core. And the asshole judges don't help when they call everyone A SUPERSTAR. I'm so tired of these judges calling people superstars .These contestants are on a singing competition show. As far as I know they've all done squat. It's a little premature to label them SUPERSTARS don't ya think.They havnt sold a single record yet. Come up with a new line already. Guess that's why real musicians must hate these shows. Unless your the sellout Steven Tyler.



  11. 11

    He's not sorry! He needs a good ass whipping!



  12. 12

    He is not truly sorry. He is just saying what he got told backstage. For sure he was practicing this all night. "My fans…" lol yeah right. *kookoo*



  13. 13

    Anybody can rap, this kid needs to go.



  14. 14

    Well Astro,may I suggest a lucrative career with the Bloods,and don't forget to wear your best blues to your initiation.



  15. 15

    He is still cocky and arrogant. Time for him to go but one week late.



  16. 16

    He is still cocky and arrogant. Time for him to go but one overdue.



  17. 17

    perez what bothers you about stacie is it bc she is a woman or bc she is black your behaivor is really racist it is ashame that in the wake of all that has happened in the news lately you would behaive like such a bulling racist



  18. 18

    He should be apologizing for his raps 1st they suck. 15 and sent packing we hope. Hope you enjoyed your 15 minutes of fame.

    Re: hollyoreilly – Although I do agree that there have been some extremely racist remarks made in reference to Astro, I have to disagree with you when you state that all of the hard work he is putting into being successful, and basically using that as an excuse for his behavior. I could care less that hes black. I could care less that hes rapping instead of singing because truth is, rap is an art form not all can do. But this has nothing to do with talent. The reason most people are disgusted with Astro is because he displays an aura of arrogance, one of entitlement. You make the argument that his only 15, and you really feel that a 15 year old should not know better? See when I was growing up, there was this thing called "Respect for your elders, Respect for others, and Respect for yourself".



  20. 20

    Now Im not old, Im in my early 30's, but I can tell you that Respect is something I feel is a very important attribute and characteristic. If we adults do not teach our children respect for all then we are failing as parents. He is not a star, and even if he was why should he feel as though he is better than anyone else. Simply because he can put a bunch of words on a piece of paper and rap them on stage??? I go to work everyday, work my ass off for 10 hours, so because I bust my ass doing my job do you think I should go around acting like a total beotch to whomever I please??? This is the problem with the generation of now, people make excuses for poor behavior, instead of making kids responsible for their actions. X-Factor failed by allowing him to go on stage after he blatantly disrespected the rules of wearing the head phones. There is nothing wrong with confidence, or recognizing that you are great at something. But there is a problem with it when you start thinking that your allowed to behave however you want because you can get away with it. And yes, Im sure if there was a country singer behaving the same way, they would get the same flack, most people dont like rude arrogant kids. PERIOD!!!



  21. 21

    It is too late Astro. Should have posted this Friday night. You are just , not likeable and you think you are "the shit" already. Better slow your roll. Better have a great performance because 99% sure ,it is your last.



  22. 22

    I think that Astro needs some lessons in how to behave. I can not understand how they have kept him and let others go that were much better then him. Stacy was so much better then him and what are those jugdes thinkingwith. I am so sick anbd tired of hearing LA say that these other acts all SOUND the same each week and yet Astro has NOT done a single different sound YET but Rap. Give me break…he is not a superstar and with that atitude he needs to go away and let one of the others stay.



  23. 23

    Re: revolve77 – Oh you are so right!!!!!!!!! Could not have said it better. Thanks



  24. 24

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – I HOPE IT IS HIS LAST!!!!!!!!



  25. 25

    Re: PowerMeUp – Then let him come back later after he has grown a little in self control and attitude



  26. 26

    Re: HateMachine – I agree whole heartedly. How can anyone stay talking to music can compare to some of the other acts. They are very good…Josh, Leroy Rachel, and the others. I know that if they keep him and send the others home I will not watch them next year. Judges Wake up



  27. 27

    Get astro n la off blacks have had their 15 minutes! Man up and post truth!



  28. 28

    his apology was sincere - what more do you people want? its a live show and hes 15. not only that hes a 15 year old boy. any 15 year old boy i know controls his emotions by using anger. of course he didnt handle it well, but he apologized so MOVE ON. i think he's great and original, and his lyrics are great! screw all the 40+s criticizing him simply based on his genre and not on his talent. its a record deal show, not a singing show. thats the whole reason why x factor is so different than other talent competitions! comon people!!

    Re: rickraton – someones a little dramatic…



  30. 30

    this explanation is crap. and why cant the producers tell him if he continues to wear the headphones, he will not be allowed on camera? dont they have the right to do that?
