Blake Lewis: 'I Love Older Women'

Blake Lewis is bonafide cougar prey according to a new interview with the “American Idol” runner-up.

Blake told MSNBC since he shot to fame on the reality competition show, the older ladies have sought him out romantically.

“I got a little bit of that, some cougars definitely . . . I love older women so it was fantastic,” he told MSNBC.

As it turns out, however, there may be more than just the cougar demographic after Blake or so some evidence he found on stage suggested.

“I finally got my first pair of panties and they were huge gigantic grandma panties,” he said. “It was awesome. I don’t know where they ended up. I think we threw them around on the tour bus that night.”

Though he’s currently single so he can focus on his career, Blake reveals details about his own love life on his record “Audio Day Dream,” due December 4. One cut takes inspiration from his romantic history. But which song is his favorite?

“The ballad ‘How Many Words,‘” he said. “It’s about the last relationship I was in. If you’ve ever had trouble being in a relationship, then getting out of it and getting back into it, you can relate. Man, I couldn’t stop. I went back like 10 times.”
