HOLLYWOOD - Kanye West had just finished filming an episode of the reality show Khloe and Lamar when he was asked what he thought about the meltdown that 15-year-old Astro had on X-Factor.
West shook his head and told LaSabrosa Windwater of Afro Sheen Magazine that he watched the show in his living room and he jumped up and started saying "Way ta go li'l bro, dats what I be talkin' 'bout, uh huh fa shizzle ma little nizzle brutha."
Miss Windwater asked West if he didn't think that Astro was out of line acting all arrogant and sarcastic seeing as how he is simply a contestant just like the other contestants and he isn't even a professional.
West remarked that Astro was merely fitting into the role of a typical hip hop, rap, gangsta type artist. He noted that little "Stro" might not have any bling bling or tattoos but he has sure got the rap artist mentality, personality, and vitality.
Windwater told West that the American people do not appreciate seeing and hearing a little 15-year-old boy disrespect his elders the way he did when he ended up in the bottom two and said that he did not feel like singing for people who put him in the bottom two.
West said that Simon "The Sultan of Sarcasm" Cowell and L.A. "Uncle Tom" Reid both had it coming because all they do is belittle the contestants by making fun of their hairdo's, their clothes, their political affiliation, and their accents.
The reporter for Afro Sheen Magazine informed Kanye West that 85 percent of her readers agree that Astro has no business acting like he has already been in the business for 12 years.
They further went on to say that there are several petitions on the Internet that call for Astro to quit singing altogether and go back home to Brooklyn where people will put up with his spoiled brat ways.
Miss Windwater remarked that West replied that he did not give a flying F what her readers, or the X-Factor judges, or the studio audience, or the viewers at home think and that Astro is going to surprise everyone and win the top prize of $5 million.
She noted that she is not clairvoyant but that she sees Astro in a few years becoming even worse than West "The Pest."
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Kanye West, Naomi Campbell, and Mike Tyson are the only three well known blacks who say that they think that Astro's bad attitude, horrible personality, and arrogant demeanor are okay. Bill Cosby, however, believes Astro needs to be sent to an anger management clinic as soon as possible.]
