Monica Lewinsky Asks Beyoncé to Take away Her Identify From “Partition” Lyric


Monica Lewinsky has a request.

After Beyoncé nixed a phrase from her newest album over ableist considerations, the 49-year-old steered that the singer go one step additional and take away her title from her hit “Partition.”

“uhmm, whereas we’re at it… #Partition,” she tweeted in Aug. 1, calling out the 2013 track from the Beyoncé album through which the singer recalled {that a} man “Monica Lewinsky’d all on my robe.”

The racy lyrics are in reference to the high-profile affair between President Invoice Clinton and a then-21-year-old Lewinski, which led to the president’s well-known denial and impeachment in 1998.

This is not the primary time Lewinski—who has “rap track muse” written in her Twitter bio—has addressed the unwelcomed named drop. In an essay she wrote for Vainness Honest in 2014, she really thanked Beyoncé for together with her within the track, however supplied one correction.

Miley Cyrus references me in her twerking stage act, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé’s newest hit offers me a shout-out. Thanks, Beyoncé, but when we’re verbing, I believe you meant ‘Invoice Clinton’d all on my robe,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.'”
