Gabby Barrettis taking us behind the scenes of her twist-filled new music video. 

The American Idolfinalist, who came in third on season 16 of the reality competition, is sharing an exclusive look into the filming of "I Hope." 

"'I Hope' is about a story of a guy that I was with and I thought everything was great, but he ended up cheating on me with another girl," Barrett says in the new clip. "But how girls are, we naturally aren't nice about it. Normally, we really feel mean about it. So that's the whole point of me saying, 'I hope she cheats, like you did on me.'"
