American Idol's Scotty McCreery: I'm Not Dating Lauren Alaina!
Lauren Alaina may have showered Scotty McCreery with kisses when he was crowned the winner of American Idol on Wednesday, but the former competitors insist there's nothing romantic going on between them.
"We're just really good friends. We really care about each other," Alaina, 16, tells Us Weekly. "Everyone wants us to like each other, but we just don't."
Still, Alaina hasn't entirely ruled out the possibility of one day dating McCreery, 17. "You never know what's going to happen 10 years down the road, but I doubt it," she says. "I think we'll always be really good friends."
After all, McCreery tells Us, he has plenty of offers back in North Carolina. "They're going wild for me!" he says. "It's pretty fun hearing what's going on back home."
The country singer adds that he isn't ready for a relationship right now anyway.
"I'm still single. I don't want a girl who likes me because I'm the American Idol," he tells Us. "I just want them to like me because I'm Scotty. That's a hard thing to find, but it'll work out sometime."
"I'm still young," he adds, "and I've got a lot of years ahead of me."
