After Lauren Alaina planted a big kiss on Scotty McCreery‘s lips when he was crowned the winner of American Idol season 10, buzz circulated that the country-singing cuties were actually a couple! So what’s the real scoop?
Lauren sat down for an interview this morning with syndicated radio show Johnjay and Rich and put the relationship rumors to rest, denying a romantic connection between her and the new Idol.
“No, we’re not [boyfriend and girlfriend],” Lauren shared. “I was kidding about it last night a lot, but we’re just friends.”
So what about that full-on kiss?
“I was just so happy and in the moment, I don’t know what happened!” Lauren explained, laughing.
While they aren’t boyfriend and girlfriend, Lauren does hope to work with Scotty at some point in the future.
“I’m sure at some point in our careers, we’ll do something together. We talk about it all the time,” she said.
