If there’s one thing I love about Lauren Alaina, it’s her ability to be real with not only her fans, but herself. She’s been an advocate for positive body image since the day she stepped on that American Idol stage and continues to inspire girls and women of all shapes and sizes and ages that they can do anything they set their minds to.
Part of what makes her so inspirational is that she doesn’t shy away from the tough stuff. She went public with her eating disorder a few years back and now she’s back to open the floor for discussion on divorce and broken homes. She’s a strong woman taking a strong stand for the things that really matter to people. And for that, I’ll always love her.
