Ali Tamposi1Stunning and brilliant songwriter, 22-year-old Ali Tamposi , who co-wrote Kelly Clarkson‘s Grammy-nominated “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” told Celebuzz on the 2013 Grammy Awards red carpet that she only has her ex-boyfriend to thank for inspiring her to write the little revenge tune.

“I wrote the song heartbroken. I was going through a serious heartbreak and it turned around. I mean, it’s gotten me so far,” she said. “It went No. 1 for four weeks and then I’m here [at the Grammys].”

“So, thank you to my ex-boyfriend for breaking my heart,” she continued, laughing. “I need my heart broken more often!”

Will Tamposi, who’s currently dating Maroon 5‘s James Valentine, write another breakup song anytime soon? All signs point to yes.

According to the Florida-native, she has a few more ideas in her back pocket.Ali Tamposi2“I told Kelly…’Listen, you’re engaged. You’ve got rainbows and butterflies. I’ve got enough heartbreak to last us a few more hits,” the songwriter told Celebuzz.

For now, Tamposi revealed that she’s currently working with Demi Lovato, Shakira and The X Factor alumFifth Harmony.

But who else does she have her eyes set on?: “Cassadee Pope is my roommate. She just won The Voice and she’s in Nashville. Going down there, I’d like to get a few country hits,” Tamposi added. “I’d love to go down there and do that.”
