Astro, 'X Factor' Rapper, Pushes Back Against Criticism That He's Arrogant (VIDEO)

Astro emerged as an undeniably talented MC on 'The X Factor', but also took criticism from viewers and judges alike for being immature and arrogant. On Wednesday, he stopped by 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) where pushed back against the perception that he's too cocky to make it in the music business.

"Basically, where I'm from, Brooklyn New York, every day is a battle," he explained. "Sometimes I display myself wrong to people at home, to the world, and I could have handled situations better, but I don't consider myself arrogant or nothing."

He also talked, albeit reluctantly, about his girlfriend, who he met in California and referenced in his 'X Factor' farewell speech. Wendy was able to pry a few facts about her identity: her name's Molly, she's Astro's age and the celebrity she most resembles is Ker Hilson. Clearly, he's got a few things figured out already.

He was arrogant from Day One. Just pissed me off....I'm glad he went. Plus, he can't sing, he can only rap.
