Monica Lewinsky Wants Beyonce To Take Her Name Out Of Hit Song

Monica Lewinsky doesn’t want her name used in derogatory fashion in one of Beyonce’s hit songs, and requested that the years old lyric be removed from the track.

Beyonce’s latest album Renaissance has been causing headaches since it was leaked 36 hours ahead of the scheduled release date. She was then shamed for using an “ableist slur” in the song “Heated,” when she sang the lyric “Spazzin’ on that a–, spazz on that a–,” which was written by rapper Drake. 

“Spaz,” which denotes “freaking out” is derived from “spastic,” which is considered a slur for people that are unable to control their muscle movements, such as those who suffer from cerebral palsy and randomly move their arms and legs. 

Woke Twitter raged that “Beyonce has no excuse for using the word [email protected] in her new song,” wrote one angry fan. “Why are disabled people constantly having to fight for ableist slurs to stop being used.”     

The singer’s representatives said “the word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced,” on the album. On Monday, Lewinsky tweeted that during the re-editing process she should consider removing a personally offensive phrase from one of her previous songs. 

The former White House intern wrote, “uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition,” in reference to the line that her boyfriend “Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown,” in regard to her affair with former President Bill Clinton. 

One critic pointed out that Lewinsky calls herself “rap song muse” in her Twitter bio, and accused her of liking the reference, because it’s the “only relevance you have as of lately.” 

She shot back that finding humor is the way she’s “learned how to deal with painful or humiliating things,” then attached a link to her Ted Talk, which is titled “The Price Of Shame.”  

Lewinsky also tweeted a quote from her 2014 Vanity Fair article, which gave her suggestion for the altered lyric. 

“Miley Cyrus references me in her twerking stage act, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé’s latest hit gives me a shout-out,” she wrote. “Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.'”

I’ve made so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve (nag-94) made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Here’s what I do.
