Lauren Jauregui is an American-Cuban singer and songwriter who is a member of Fifth Harmony, a prominent American girl group. The group is known as one of the most sought upon music bands in America, having received significant public notice on the US version of the hit show ‘The X Factor.’ While on the show, Simon Cowell mentored the group’s amateur members, and with his help, the group released their first album, “Reflection,” which reached the top 5 on the Billboard charts, making The Fifth Harmony members some of the show’s few constants who actually achieved success in the industry. Lauren’s audition video on YouTube has already gone viral, receiving over 3 million views. Despite the fact that Fifth Harmony was ranked third on the show, poll results showed that they were the most popular competitors by the end of the season. When it comes to Lauren’s personal life, her dating life has been quite the talk of the town, and she has dated a lot of individuals before ultimately admitting that she is bisexual in 2016.
Childhood and Adolescence
Lauren Jauregui was born on June 27, 1996, in Miami, Florida, to Mike and Clara Jauregui. Lauren Jauregui has two brothers, Taylor and Chris.
Lauren excelled in school and attended the Sacred Heart School of Carrolton. She began singing at a young age and, despite lack of instruction, maintained the flame within her throughout the years. She is the eldest of her siblings and, as a result, has always been the most responsible.
Lauren has admitted that as a child, she was labeled as a “arrogant youngster full of herself,” a moniker that she still bears now. She also stated that she didn’t care about it back then, and she doesn’t care about it today.
As a kid, she was a huge fan of Journey, Paramore, and The Scripts, among other bands. She claims that these three have had the greatest influence on her musical career, and that she does not go a day without listening to their music.
Lauren is of Cuban ancestry and has experienced a lot of bullying and racial intolerance. When she was lonely, she would draw. She went to a Hannah Montana concert when she was ten years old, and she claims it changed her life forever.
Career of Lauren Jauregui
Lauren Jauregui auditioned for the inaugural season of the American version of the singing reality show ‘The X Factor,’ where she didn’t show much potential in the early stages of the competition. Her audition video, on the other hand, became immensely popular subsequently, with millions of views. Lauren was cut from boot camp, but she gained popularity on the program and was finally placed in the girl group in July 2012, alongside Camila Cabello, Ally Brook, Dinah Jane, and Normani Kordei.
Despite the fact that the group Fifth Element was quite popular on the show, it did not emerge as the winner and finished in third place. Lauren and the other members of the group parted ways after the show, but they stayed for a little longer to watch what would happen. Soon after, they gained the attention of some major record labels, and their career took off.
Lauren’s band inked a deal with Syco Music, which is owned by music mogul Simon Cowell, and Epic Records, L.A. Reid’s record company, in January 2013. The band was also named Popdust Magazine’s ‘Next Pop Superstar of 2013’ at the time. Later, it was revealed that all of the band members had signed separate deals with Epic Records. Lauren and her team began performing cover versions of popular songs and quickly garnered a following on social media, mainly YouTube.
Lauren and her teammates released their first single, ‘Miss Moving On,’ in 2013, and their raw skill and boundless energy soon drew the attention of the public. The song was eventually certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, and the single’s music video was nominated for an MTV Music Award for “Artist to Watch” at the MTV Music Awards.
Lauren and her band debuted in the Extended Play market with the single ‘Better Together,’ which catapulted them to international prominence and confirmed Lauren’s status as one of the most brilliant young musicians. The play debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 in the United States, which is an incredible achievement for the young artists.
Between 2013 and 2015, the group played at a variety of shopping malls and concerts, increasing their fan base and recognition. In 2015, they published their first studio album, ‘Reflection.’ It was such a big hit with music fans that the RIAA awarded it gold certification. A couple hits from the album achieved triple platinum in the United States alone, and were well-received around the world. In 2016, they released their second album, ‘7/27,’ and their success story continued.
The band won iHeartRadio Music Awards, three MTV Europe Music Awards, three MTV Music Video Awards, and other teen choice awards for their musical achievements. Fifth Harmony has a total of 4,24,000 albums sold, about 7 million digital downloads, and several planned musical projects to their name.
Lauren collaborated with the renowned electro*pop duet Marian Hill on the song “Back to Me” in December 2016. She’s also excited to be a part of Hasley’s future album, where she’ll be included in a song. Lauren was also honored with the British LGBT Awards’ Celebrity of the Year award in 2017.
Private life of Lauren Jauregui
Lauren came out as a bisexual in 2016, which shocked Lauren’s admirers given her long and tumultuous relationship history. In an open letter to Donald Trump’s supporters, she proclaimed her bisexuality, which was published in the widely circulated magazine Billboard.
Although she is now single, she has been associated to a number of celebrities in the past, including Keaton Stromberg, Luis Santos, and Brad Simpson. She has revealed that she has a soft spot for musicians and that she hopes to marry one eventually.
Her ‘egoistic’ attitude has caused a lot of trouble for her family and friends, and there are rumors that she might be fired from Fifth Element shortly. However, the band has dismissed it as a baseless rumor.
Lauren’s band has become fairly popular among the youth, resulting in a fortune for each member. Lauren’s net worth is estimated to be 3.5 million dollars, which is incredible considering she is only 21 years old and at the start of her career.
