American Idol season ten contestant Lauren Alaina may have us all thinking that her performances are effortless, but the 16 year old recently told US Magazine “It’s overwhelming and insane” of her journey on the show thus far. Lauren, who also says that her performance of Aerosmith’s “Don’t want to miss a thing” was not planned and she was not as nervous as you would think as she said “I don’t know how that happened!. It wasn’t planned but I’m glad I did it!”
Lauren Alaina also told the magazine that her American Idol journey has been affecting her weight as well. Lauren had issues with seeing herself on television at first, but now that is starting to change as the teen says she is dropping weight as she adds “I look heavier on television. It’s better now, after the first time I saw myself. I’ve been working out.” Lauren reportedly watches her diet and her diet staples consist of grilled fish and chicken, but no bread or pasta!
