Monica Lewinsky hints for Beyonce to remove her name from her song ‘Partition’
The New York Daily News - 8/3/2022
Stop saying my name.
That’s Monica Lewinsky’s message to singer Beyonce, who will reportedly stop using the word “sp-z” in her new song “Heated” in deference to people with disabilities who may take offense to that term.
Linking to a story about that change on Monday, Lewinsky, who was infamously caught up in a sex scandal involving former president Bill Clinton in 1998, reminded her of another lyric.
“Uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition,” Lewinsky tweeted, referencing the 2013 Beyonce tune that uses her name as a metaphor for ejaculation.
“He Monica Lewinski’d all on my gown,” Beyonce sings about a sexual encounter in the back of a limousine.
Lewinsky became a target for ridicule after her sexual relationship with the former president became public knowledge. She was frequently lampooned on late night television.
In the years since, the 49-year-old former White House intern has reinvented herself as an anti-bullying advocate who frequently shares witty quips on social media.
In 2014, Lewinsky penned an essay for Vanity Fair where she states for the record, that technically, Beyonce should have sung that her date “Bill Clinton’d all on my gown.”
Lewinsky engaged her Twitter critics Tuesday, claiming she has not contacted Beyonce about the offending song lyric and was joking when she asked the “Say My Name” singer to revisit her nine-year-old song.
“Actually, it’s how I’ve learned to deal with painful or humiliating things… I find the humor,” she wrote.
Beyonce has not addressed Lewinsky’s tweet.
