Allison Iraheta Covers 'Latina' May 2010

Allison Iraheta Covers 'Latina' May 2010

American Idol alum Allison Iraheta shows off her bright red hair on the cover of Latina magazine’s May 2010 issue!

Here’s what the 17-year-old singer had to share:

On keeping a little bit of anonymity: “A lot of people still don’t know who I am until I say, ‘Soy de American Idol.’ That’s when everyone starts snapping their cameras.”

On Adam Lambert‘s offer to have her move in with him: “My mom loves Adam, but I don’t know. That’s gonna be a tough one to sell.”

On being known for her own work: “I don’t want people to see me and immediately think, ‘Oh, that’s the girl with the red hair who was on American Idol,’ I want them to say, ‘That’s Allison Iraheta. She’s a great artist who makes real music and has something to say‚Ä”and she rocks.’”

FYI: Allison will be opening for Adam Lambert on his “Glam Nation” tour this summer!!

    haven’t heard her music yet, so IS still that red head from AI.

    Her Album is called Just Like You, Go check it out on iTunes or Amazon, girl is amazing talented.

  • Dog Lover

    Hair is fake.
    She said so.

  • zee

    Finally some proper promotion. This girl’s voice is phenomenal. She deserves to make it in the music biz.

  • happy girl

    love her voice! awesome voice. so cute that she and adam are such good friends.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …first, let me start of by saying she was on the most talented, and exciting season of idol ever… but she’s done nothing since. there’s no material on the market from her. no reason she should be even talking.

  • Mari

    Everyone should buy her album, It is REALLY GOOD.

  • Amanda

    I don’t connect with her music (give me P!nk instead), but she’s a sweetheart and very talented and I wish her luck.

  • Buck

    Allison! Love her!

    I don’t get why more people aren’t bying her album.

  • ally

    I don’t get the negative comments here…maybe I’m just a really big Allison fan, but personally, I think she’s incredible. Her personality’s wonderful. She’s so funny and such a sweetheart. Allison’s really gorgeous…I mean just look at those shots. And her voice? Out of this world. The power she has and her range? I have no idea why she isn’t blowing up the charts when other cookie cutter autotuned teens are. I really don’t. And to those who don’t know she has stuff out, she has an amazing album called Just Like You. Ballads, rockin’ tracks, pop tracks, it has it all. Like Adam Lambert said, she can outsing any of the teen artists of today, like sing circles around them. Stop hating on her.

  • lucy

    she seems like a cool girl!

  • Infamous

    I didnt know she was Latina

  • Liz

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:
    Her album came out in December, ‘Just Like You’

  • blah

    I stil dont know who she is and i dont really care to be honest with you

  • Status quo

    Her album is very good….I mean very very good. She deserves the best.

  • kms

    She’s going to be opening for Adam Lambert on his Glam Nation tour this summer – I’m hoping this will help more people become familiar with her music. She’s got a great set of pipes.

  • Truth

    She is on her way to becoming the rocker chick of this century. she sings with such emotion and such a good voice. Look at some her stuff on youtube. She is amazing. She just turned 18 folks. by the time she is 25 she will be a household name.

    In particular check out the videos from of “Trouble Is” “Don’t Waste the Pretty” and if you can find it, a live cover of “Killing Me Softly”

    She is way ahead of her time and deserves to be compared to Joplin, as she is often times.

  • Jen

    I bought her album, after hearing a couple of her songs while at the theater. Didn’t even know she was from American Idol (I don’t watch it). Her Album is amazing, literally every song is really good.

  • rock on

    Allison…you and Adam
    are going to ROCK this summer!
    Wishing you a Happy 18th Birthday!!!!!

  • adam/allison fan

    WOW! This girl can Sing!
    just bought her CD- every song ROCKS!
    So excited about you and Adam
    touring this summer!!!
    I’ll be there…front row baby!!!!

  • Lauren

    Allison looks beautiful on the cover! I have been looking for the magazine at all of my local stores and have not found it yet. I will have to check again this weekend. I wish her all the best in her career. She is an exceptional talent!

  • anna777

    Allison is a talented young girl.

  • All Women Stalker

    I love the styling of this shoot. And my, she is one talented girl!

  • Lock


    I so agree with you. She can out sing the most of teen singers. Those teens don’t have a big powerful voice like hers. And she is so sweet and fun and down to earth and talented. I just hope her label promotes her harder. Her album is actually really good. Come on people, backlash such a sweetheart for what? If you haven’t heard her album, you don’t really have anything, good or bad, to say here. So, stop bashing her for no reason.

  • Jessica

    Nice heir

  • mary

    This girl has some great vocals. Her cd is awesome!! It’s actually better than Christina Aguilera’s album.

  • LonggDistance

    @Dog Lover:

    On the cover of the magazine she has her natrual hair.. her hair is short like that.. THe rest the long parts of her hair are not her hair. Yes they are extensions.

  • joely

    This young lady is the real deal. I don’t think her first single was a smart choice – they tried to market her as teen-bubblegum, and she ain’t that. She does not come across as sexually precocious like the no-talent gals out there; rather, she can actually sing with nuance and interpret music.

    And moving in with Adam Lambert? I’d be packed already.

  • magenta rocks

    Allison is a beautiful & talented teenager!
    She has years to grow and develop into
    the ROCK STAR we all know she will be!

  • lulu

    I love Allison! She’s such an amazing talent and her album is pretty incredible. Have been listening since it dropped!

  • No rules

    omg! Alli…you have to move in with Adam!
    how much FUN would that be!!!

  • adison

    Allison should move in with ADAM … she would have her own private mentor & with ADAM’s musical experience Allison could learn a lot from him musically & how to make the people ask for more. They were GREAT on Idol together & during the tour & opening for ADAM may be just the little something Allison needs to give her career a boost. Having Orianthi to learn from isn’t too bad either. Go ADISON!!

  • Lina

    Aaaahhhhhhh FINALLY some good news for Allison!!! Really happy for my girl touring with Adam (thanks Adam, you’re da bomb!!!), it will give her some major promotion boost. Her voice is RIDICULOUS and her album is REALLY GOOD.
