Astro Speaks On Feeling Like He Wasn't Treated Fairly On 'X-Factor,' Whether Or Not He's Signed With L.A. Reid & Future Plans [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

At 15-years old New York rapper Astro aka the Astronomical Kid has gotten a lot of valuable experience in dealing with the media and performing in pressure packed situations on the X-Factor.

 

The Brooklyn kid born Brian Bradley, made it into the top seven of the competition before being eliminated. A couple of weeks prior he was nearly eliminated when he finished in the bottom two. Visibly upset, the teenager didn't want to perform that night to stave off elimination, but was convinced by his mentor L.A. Reid to keep going.

 

Now that the competition is over he is speaking freely about why he felt he wasn't treated fairly.

 

"Honestly man I felt like I was being treated unfairly because of something that happened behind the scenes the day before that I can't really talk about," he told Vlad TV. "I could have been wrong, but I felt like I was being treated unfairly and that was X-Factor's way of punishing me [by putting him in the bottom two]. But to be honestly I feel like everything happens for a reason. It had a cause, because after the night my [Twitter] followers went up by like 30,000. But that's the past. It is what it is. Right now I'm focused on the future."

 

That future is sure to include a record deal soon. There have been rumors linking Astro to Roc Nation, L.A. Reid and G-Unit after he performed with 50 Cent on the season's finale. At this point all of that is still up in the air. Regardless of who he ends up signing with Astro said he will always see Reid as his mentor.

 

"He's a great man. He let's me be me and that's what I respect," Astro says of Reid. "I feel like if I didn't have L.A. as a mentor I probably would have went insane."

Somebody mentioned that he was the Terrel Owens of music, because of his bad attitude, I would rather say the Maurice Clarett of music; not even in the game and yaps about a couple of people who have done it all.
