L.A. Reid Says He’ll Buy Marcus Canty a Bentley If He Wins ‘X Factor’
In a move that might piss off Chris Rene and Astro, L.A. Reid has said that he will buy a sweet, sweet set of wheels for fellow boys group contestant Marcus Canty if he wins 'X Factor.' If Canty pulls off the big win, Reid will gift him with a Bentley. What a ride.
Reid, who mentors the boys group, told The Hollywood Reporter that "I haven't given a Bentley away in a long time. But I told Marcus’ mom, ‘If he wins, you get a Bentley.’" Um, L.A., is there anyway we can be on your team? We would not say "no" to a Bentley from you. Let us know.
Maybe Reid said that to boost Canty's spirits, since the talented singer ended up in the bottom three of the public voting last week and narrowly staved off elimination. Reid also said that he is so enamored with the talent on the show that he'd like to "sign every one of them." He is the head honcho at Epic Records and has the power to do so, so we'll see.
Perhaps if the boys in his group all go home before the winner is selected next month, they will reunite with Reid post-show on his label. You never know!
