At Wednesday night’s Country Music Awards, American Idol Kelli Pickler opened up to OK! about her broken heart.

As OK! reported in early October, the 21-year-old had recently split from her hockey-playing boyfriend Jordan Tootoo, when she told an audience at a concert in Michigan that he had cheated on her. But at the CMAs, Kelli was singing a a more forgiving tune to OK!.

"You know, stuff happens, it is what it is. When that happened, it was right after the break up, I kind of wanted a quick revenge." She added, "He humiliated me so the least I could do is return the favor. It is what it is. We have been able to get a friendship out of it."

Meanwhile those personal events are showing up in her music. On her album she has a song called "Things That Never Cross a Man’s Mind" and she revealed to OK! what exactly those things are. "Well for starters, they never think to put the toilet lid down and the list goes on and on!"
