Hillary Clinton says she ‘wants to be as good a President as Beyoncé is a performer’

Clinton is hoping to run for office in 2016

Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has said that she wants to be as good a President as Beyonce is a pop star.

The comments came as Clinton answered questions from voters in Iowa on Wednesday (December 16). One individual asked the politician if she would rather be President or the former Destiny’s Child singer.

“I’d rather be president because I can’t sing,” Clinton replied. “Nobody would pay to see me sing or dance. Even when I was a way lot younger, it just wasn’t in the cards for me.”

“You see her on TV, it’s impressive. You see her in person, you’re just stunned. Thinking like, how does she do that? Really. I mean, she sings, she’s up, she’s down. It’s just amazing. So it’s just not in my astrological reading, I think”.

Clinton continued: “So I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer.” Watch in the video below.

Meanwhile, a host of music stars have backed Clinton in her 2016 Presidential campaign so far, including Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
