Kelly Clarkson has been all over the news not only for her stellar performance of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” during the inauguration, but also for a candid moment with former president Bill Clinton.

Clinton was caught photobombing her appearance–craning his neck to get a better look at her during the ceremony.

The Internet has had a lot of fun with the shot, but what does Kelly herself think about the moment of admiration?

“I loved it,” Kelly said, laughing, during an interview with Paul Koffy of BUZ’N@102.9 in Minneapolis.

She went on to explain how, later that day, she was already planning her revenge of sorts.

“We saw him [Clinton] at the Washington White House reception thing afterwards,” she explained. “And Brandon and I were dying to get a picture of me standing two people behind him, checking him out from close up. We were going to put them both side by side and tweet them.”

But, she said, “We couldn’t get near him, because there were so many politicians surrounding him, obviously he’s Bill Clinton. But yeah, we were dying to do that.”

Hear the full Kelly Clarkson interview on BUZ’N@102.9.
