‘American Idol’s’ Lauren Alaina already being asked to prom

Lauren's speaking out!

When you are in the top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart and are also just 16 years old, odds are you are probably going to be a pretty popular girl. For “American Idol” star Lauren Alaina, she is certainly receiving that back in her hometown of Rossville, Georgia.

While speaking in an interview with Ryan Seacrest this week, the reigning runner-up said that she has already received some requests to go to prom for the upcoming year — but she has also said that she turned all of them down. Why? Maybe she’s looking for the right person … or she just doesn’t want that sort of attention at the moment. (She already has to deal with the rumors that suggested she and Scotty McCreery were dating during the show.)

Lauren’s newest single is “George Peaches,” and you can listen to the rest of this rather fun interview below this article.
