Scotty McCreery: Young And Single!

Scotty McCreery is going to have a lot of girls knocking at his door now that he's the new American Idol, but fellow contestant Lauren Alaina is not going to be one of those girls. The 17-year-old Idol says he's single -- no matter how much we want them to be cozying up.

When Scotty McCreery played it coy in regards to his relationship with Lauren Alaina immediately following his American Idol win, we really thought there might be something going on between the country cuties -- she did give him the peck seen around the world. Alas, he wasn't kidding when he said they were "just friends."

Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina

The Idol winner told Us Weekly, "I'm still single. I don't want a girl who likes me because I'm the American Idol. I just want them to like me because I'm Scotty. That's a hard thing to find, but it'll work out sometime."

He added that his girl fans are going nuts back in his home state of North Carolina. "They're going wild for me!" he said. "It's pretty fun hearing what's going on back home."

There you have it folks, Scotty McCreery is single -- straight from his own mouth.

His good buddy Lauren Alaina chimed in with her own thoughts during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. "No boyfriend for me," she said.

She added in regards to Scotty McCreery, "Everyone wants us to like each other, but we just can't seem to do it."

In all seriousness, it's nice to see McCreery acknowledging his youth and realizing he doesn't have to hop into a relationship just because everyone wants him to. "I'm still young," he said, "and I've got a lot of years ahead of me."

Time to move on, people. There's nothing to see here.

Dear Scotty, I had a STRONG feeling you were going to win it all. The music industry needs to know a clean cut kid from the south (my home town, Garner)can teach them something. You are so remarkable cute and talented....keep the faith. Janie
