"I'm very excited by the news," the 'Booty' singer, 45, said of Hillary's candidacy.

"I'm getting ready to do something, too — I'm running for president," the former Secretary of State said in the clip, which was posted to her website. "Americans need a champion and I want to be that champion."

In a newly published epilogue to her 2014 book, 'Hard Choices,' Hillary suggests becoming a grandparent — Hillary and Bill Clinton's daughter, Chelsea Clinton, 35, welcomed her first child, Charlotte, with husband Marc Mezvinsky, 37, last September — helped her ultimately decide to run for president.

"Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. Rather than make me want to slow down, it has spurred me to speed up," she wrote.
"You shouldn't have to be the granddaughter of a President or a Secretary of State to receive excellent health care, education, enrichment, and all the support and advantages that will one day lead to a good job and a successful life. That's what we want for all our kids," an excerpt of the book's epilogue, obtained by '[The Huffington Post](http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hillary-clinton/hard-choices-epilogue_b_7037880.html?utm_hp_ref=politics,' read.
