Monica Lewinsky reacted to information that Beyoncé is altering a tune lyric on her album Renaissance after it was deemed offensive, suggesting the Grammy winner do the identical factor on her 2013 tune “Partition.”
“Uhmm, while we’re at it…” the creator tweeted after information broke on Monday.
On the tune “Partition,” Beyoncé alludes to Lewiskny’s affair with former President Bill Clinton and, um, a sexual act. In 2014, the previous White House intern opened up about how she’s often referenced in popular culture and sarcastically responded to Beyoncé’s tune.
“Every day, it seems, my name shows up in an oped column or a press clip or two — mentioned in passing in articles on subjects as disparate as millennials, Scandal, and French president François Hollande’s love life. Miley Cyrus references me in her twerking stage act, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé’s latest hit gives me a shout-out. Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d,” Lewinsky wrote.
Beyoncé hasn’t responded to Lewinsky’s message. However, the famous person heard incapacity activists over the weekend when she was referred to as out for utilizing the phrase “spaz” on her the tune “Heat.” The phrase is derogatory time period for spastic diplegia, a type of cerebral palsy. Beyoncé responded by way of her rep as she confronted backlash for utilizing the ableist slur.
“The word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced,” a spokesperson acknowledged.
