Astro Apologizes For Acting Like A Brat On The X Factor USA

Astro acted like a total brat on last week’s elimination episode of The X Factor USA. So much, in fact, that Simon Cowell almost changed his mind and booted him from the show.

When it came down to the final showdown between himself and Stacy Francis, Astro almost refused to perform — prompting all of us here to wonder why this spoiled brat should be in the competition in the first place.

Now, he is apologizing for his actions on his official Facebook page, telling fans that he is sorry for saying that he didn’t want to perform on the show.

He said, “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!”

He went on to say, “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!”

He added, “People are saying I’m cocky and arrogant, well maybe I have watched too many Mohammad Ali films or maybe I grew up with 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.”

He better watch his attitude then, because we’ve got a double elimination coming up on this week’s show!

    Your condescending, insincere apology is not accepted. Nor am I the least bit surprised that your parents defended you. They are seeing the $$$ they hope you’ll bring in! 
    For those judges to sit there and praise this kid for rapping yet ANOTHER one of his rhymes again this week when everyone else has to sing is just too much to watch anymore. 
    I sure hope this kid goes home but I’m not holding my breath. American seems to reward bad behavior at every turn! (just like Simon said – really sad!)

    He should go home tomorrow night. He can’t sing-only rap. I don’t accept his apology either-I think it’s fake
