Lauren Alaina’s View On Dating Apps – “I have never been on a dating app ever,” laughs Lauren. “I have been on them, like, on my friend’s pages. I know how they work, but I have never personally had a one.” “What would my bio say?” jokes Lauren. “I am a singer, and I am gone, not this last year, but typically, I am gone 150-200 days a year. I am never home on weekends. If you work 9-5 Monday through Friday, we probably aren’t going to work out very well.” – Read more at CMTCody
Lauren Alaina Learned to Sing by Listening to Christina Aguilera and Martina McBride – Regarding Christina Aguilera’s risqué 1999 hit “Genie in a Bottle,” Alaina says, “I wore this record out. It’s funny, I was in a pageant one time, but I didn’t do the pageant portion, just the talent portion. I picked ‘Genie in a Bottle’ to sing. My mother said when I was onstage at like seven or eight years old, singing that song, that’s when she realized for the first time what that song was about, and she was like, ’Oh, my gosh.’ I did not have any idea what it was about at the time.” Furthermore, she continues, “Martina McBride and Christina Aguilera pretty much taught me how to sing. I learned how to sing runs from Christina, and I learned how to be a country singer from Martina. I’m not saying I’m as good a singer as them, but I will say that they taught me how to do what I do.” – Read more at CMT.com
