Monica Lewinsky wants Beyoncé to remove her name from the lyrics of the score
Monica Lewinsky challenges one of Beyoncé’s hit songs.
On Monday, the lawyer, speaker and producer responded to a headline Variety about Beyoncé pulling a word that was deemed “capable” from the song “Heated” on her latest album, Renaissance.
In response, Lewinsky, 49, tweeted“uh, while we’re at it… #Partition‘, referencing Beyoncé’s 2013 single which features the lyrics “he Monica Lewinsky had it all on my dress” – a nod to Lewinsky’s high-profile affair with former President Bill Clinton.
When fans called her out for seeming to single out Beyoncé, 40, Lewinsky replied“When articles about the 125+ other artists changing song lyrics cross my TL, I promise I will do the same.”
She also explained why she calls herself a “muse of rap music” in her Twitter bio, telling a fan, “because learning to laugh at things that hurt me or humiliated me is the way I I survived”.
Explaining the etiquette to another fan, Lewinsky said in part, “I was a Beyoncé fan until ‘Partition'” narrative another Twitter user who of all the times her scandal has been publicly referenced, “Using Beyoncé was the most disappointing because I was a fan.”
She also noted that this isn’t the first time she’s mentioned the name being dropped, Tweeter“Newsflash: Always consider YOUR first time hearing something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the first time it’s been said. (That was a good reminder for me too.)”

In 2014, Lewinsky wrote a vanity lounge editorial on being the subject of conversation and humiliation. She wrote in part, “Miley Cyrus references me in her twerk number, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé’s latest hit has me screaming. Thank you, Beyoncé, but if we’re talking, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton ‘d all over my dress,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’ ”
