Question: Can you tell us about the issue you had a few weeks ago with Simon and the fans?
Astro: I apologized to my supporters and stuff. I don’t want to foucs on past, and I feel like I am humbled from it. I don’t wanna talk about it, it’s just negative energy.

Astro: I just want to say thank you to everyone that has been supporting me and has been down with me from day one, I appreciate it a lot.
Question: Have any of your idols reached out to you yet?
Astro: Not that I know, but I am pretty sure they will soon.
Question: Can you tell us about Molly, is that your girlfriend?
Astro: I have a girlfriend, and that’s all people need to know right now.
Question: Has the whole experience made you a better performer?
Astro: It definitely has, I learned a lot from it, and it humbled me. It was a great experience, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Question: Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Astro: My inspiration comes from my supporters, and things I see around me. I just draw from surroundings, what I am going through and feel like at the moment.
Question: What have been your favorite performances on the show?
Astro: My favorite performance was Josh’s last performance. I think was an extreme performance and I really enjoyed it. As for my own performances, it would have to be Lose Yourself. I came out there simple and clean, it was simple – just me being me.
Question: What advice do you have for other young folks like yourself?
Astro: Keep your heads up, and enjoy yourself. Believe in yourself, because if you believe in yourself, nothing can stop you.

Astro: I got a taste of what celebrity life would be like. I had a lot of fun there.
Question: What do think about being in the bottom in terms of votes?

Question: Do you think you set the standard for more Hip Hop on these types of shows?
Astro: Definitely. I hope that next year a lot of people audition because of me.
