  • LAUREN ALAINA HAS NO LUCK PICKING A ‘NEXT BOYFRIEND.’

    Lauren Alaina just released her new single, “Next Boyfriend,” and during her shows, she always “picks” a guy to come on stage while she sings the song. Most of them do not fit the part of her “next boyfriend,” though. Check out the newest installment of her SWAK videos below.

    P.S. Lauren does actually have a boyfriend, and his name is Alex.
