Whether you were Team Lauren or Team Scotty, the moment after Ryan Seacrest announced that Scotty McCreery was this year’s American Idol had us all thinking, “WTH?!” And it had nothing to do with the results. It was the kiss — make that kisses that Lauren Alaina planted on McCreery that had everyone wondering if all of their time spent together throughout the competition led to a different kind of relationship. So are Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina an item?
“He might be my boyfriend…ask him,” a coy Lauren Alaina told Entertainment Tonight following the finale of American Idol, making sure to note that she kissed him not once, but twice, with the second smooch planted right on his lips.
But, don’t get too excited…
When ET asked Scotty McCreery if he and Alaina were more than friends, the new American Idol winner made it clear that he’s “still single.” Though he admits that he and Lauren have “gotten really close,” the country crooner says he doesn’t know about “the more than friends stuff,” adding that he can imagine Lauren saying that there’s something more going on between them, being the “character” that she is.
Maybe Lauren Alaina was simply preparing Scotty for all of the ladies that are going to be throwing themselves at him now that he’s the American Idol winner. According to McCreery, he’s already risen quite a few notches on the datability meter since being selected for the Fox reality show.
“The ladies weren’t like this back before American Idol, it was tough on me back home,” says Scotty.
Get used to it pal!
And for those of you still hoping for a “Laurotty” or “Scauren” hook-up, well…there’s still the summer tour!
